5 stars I really didn't expect this to impress me as much as "Uomo Di Pezza" but it did. This one is spacier and darker, probably to suit the cosmic concept of this record. And so we get a lavish array of synths on this one.

"Sospesi Nell'Incredibile" is a song that cannot be propery described because of how moving and uplifting it is. It opens with a very impressive drum / organ passage before that section stops 2 minutes in and then those gorgeous vocals of Aldo come in with waves of organ. Gulp. Stronger vocals 4 minutes in are followed by some great drumming and synth work. This is truly amazing ! The drumming is just so impressive. It gets spacey after 7 minutes. "Felona" features strummed guitar with vocals.This is fun and light until the fuzz organ arrives a minute in. Flute late. "La Solitudine Di Chi Protegge Il Mondo" is spacey with distant sounding vocals to open. Aldo then sings beautifully as piano joins him. It's spacey again to end it.

"L'Equilibrio" features organ, synths, vocals, piano and drums that all come and go making this song a great and interesting ride. "Sorona" is a 2 1/2 minute song that features mournful vocals with synths and gentle guitar. "Attesa Inerte" opens with orchestral-like sounds before string-synths come in with vocals a minute in. I love when the beat comes in before 1 1/2 minutes. Organ 2 minutes in. This is such a cool track. Themes are repeated. "Ritratto Di Un Mattino" is spacey to start with. Vocals join in around 1 1/2 minutes. A gorgeous melody comes in before 2 minutes. This is so uplifting. It settles right down with piano 3 minutes in to end it. "All'Infuori Del Tempo" opens with strummed guitar as reserved vocals join in. Organ comes and goes. Drums and a fuller sound after 3 minutes. It's spacey to end it. "Ritorno Al Nulla" is the closing instrumental. Synths and drums dominate in impressive fashion.

I do prefer "Uomo Di Pezza" (I think) but both are masterpieces in my opinion.
