5 stars In spite of still not knowing completely the lyrics of this album, that does not rest merits to the wonderful and striking music, that goes from the beginning to the end of the album, flowing softly and making all the changes to make it rich in textures and emotions being expressed with notes. It reminds me a combination among Celeste, Le Orme and Banco. This one-shot album of Reale Accademia di Musica is definitively a must for any prog fan of this incredible Italian sound.


Exquisite song, with that Italian feeling: pastoral and soft, beautiful. The acoustic guitar is so melodic along with the voice of the singer; it just fits perfectly, flowing to the end like walking through Italian vineyards. A piece of mind.

Il Mattino.

This is a wonderful, melodic song that shows me how this band had the courage to call themselves Reale Accademia di Musica. The song starts slow to go in crescendo in this fantastic frenzy of a spectacular piano combined all with the amazing drums, bass and at the mellotron at the background. Here, the piano takes the role at the middle of the song to go all along through the song. If you cannot enjoy this track probably you would never enjoy anything of the Italian prog. The combination of all those instruments, but the feeling of the piano being played at speed, it adds a new whole dimension that I never heard before. To close this epic track, the whole bombastic sound finishes to go to the prime notes of the song, to end with the great vocals and a little more of the mellotron. 5 of 5stars to this!.

Ognuno Sa.

This is another track where the piano of Troiani shows us his talent. The song kicks in, slow with the voice of Federico Troiani and the drums, a bit later it joined them the piano; to go to the middle part which is a funny, catchy, and uplifting solo of piano. Another wonderful track. The notes of piano, repeats at the end and I cannot get out of my head these notes and have them ringing so beautiful in my ears.


One more example, of fineness and talent of Reale. This is a progressive masterpiece. Here the electric Guitar plays the intro with deep and stunning notes, going in minuend and crescendo through the song, great ballad with hints of the mellotron and piano. The song goes again to meet the electric guitar at the end to close the track. Another gem, in this splendid album.

Lavono in Citta.

I love this track. With a strange beginning, the piano kicks in, with a rugged voice along with piano and drums to slow the sound in the middle part and change the feeling of the song to a nice melody of piano and drums creating a wonderful atmosphere with echoes in the singing. I really enjoy this singing, a soft and warm sensation of calmness and joy. To change again the rhythm, to a more jazzy part at the end. Vertigine.

This song is of course the title: a vertiginous track comparing it with the previous tracks. Mellotrons wholesale flooding the song like fountains, closing with the electric guitar and more mellotrons! Tremendous track. Excellent theme to close this glorious album.

My rate is of course more than 4 stars. So here in progarchives is have to be a 5 stars. No doubt about it!

Excellent album, do not hesitate to get it if you see it and listen to it!

A progposito, RSDMCG!
