3 stars I wish I could match James's enthusiasm and read so much into this record as he does. Unfortunately I would have to agree with Lethe's review of their debut: this sounds like retro prog to me - VERY WELL DONE but almost pointless. The music is impeccably played , written , produced and delivered - something we all have to agree that Fabio Zuffantiis a master at but again , the lack of imagination is what strikes me the most in such a release. Not that I am unable to enjoy it - far from it , it has spun some twenty times since I bought it but I cannot get excited about it the way I would if I was listening to a superb Italian classic such as PFM or QVL .

As for the music, this is somewhere along PFM , Museo , Q V Loccanda and many more with great music and unmistakably Italian progressive vocal delivery although the voice reminds me of a cross between Ramazotti and Zucchero also . Zuffanti coming from Finnisterre has this project well in hand and the music has a more distinct direction than his afore- mentioned group (this was my main complaint about Finisterre). If you are to indulge in this band you are likely to enjoy it but do not look for anything new or original - Zuffanti has Lazona reserved for that!!!
