3 stars Delicate, emotional, melodic: these words perfectly describe my feeling when listening to this album. And what a treat for flute lovers!

"Il Sesto Giorno" holds it all. A wonderful opening number which also features excellent vocals. But the genre has offered many of these passionate vocalists. I can't really help to be laudatory when I hear such music.

This little known band forms part of the hordes of wonderful prog bands from the early seventies. Maybe that the themes here are somewhat too religious to my taste.

At times, it is difficult not to succumb to the beauty of the music performed on this album. "Crepusculo" is such a great track. Fantastic musicianship really, and if it were not these repetitive "Jesus" vocal lines, it would have been a jewel of a song. Still, the second highlight.

The music also flirts with some heavier sounds ("Hiroshima") not that far from the early Heep. This is of course related by the huge presence of keyboards throughout the album.

The problem with this work, is that some numbers are really bad. "Nuova Luce" for instance. Absolutely awful. Some sort of Italian gospel (you can imagine the result.). Press next for your piece of mind.

Things get better during "Sogno E Realta". One of the few songs in which the guitar can be clearly distinguished. Fine rhythm, but again the religious chorus is a bit too much. And my feeling about the closing Inno Di Gloria is mixed. Excellent instrumental parts but weak vocal ones.

Italian music lovers should listen to this album. It really holds some great musical moments, but other ones as well. In all, a good album. Three stars.
