4 stars Within the Italian Pop Progressive scene of such "Liguria District" (NEW TROLLS, MUSEO ROSENBACH mainly) you find a remarkable band such as "Alphataurus", whose first album started the "ERA" of the "Magma label"... while talking about their melodic aspects concerning their composition, A.T. owned a good background, regarding of their skill, such an excellent interpretation of some English successful bands of the same period, like EL&P or the melodic hard rock band URIAH HEEP; instead the harmony was a bit better, regarding of a good use of such analogical synthesizers like the Mini-Moog. Besides I like to point out that some tracks such as the memorable "Ombra muta", should be a great reference still today, if enriched with a better production and a modern approach as well... anyway in general the work at the keyboards by Pellegrini is excellent, especially inside "La mente vola"; while the guitar work is often characterized by dark guitar-riffs!! Recommended, even though it is not completely essential, above all regarding their melodies...
