5 stars An absolute masterpiece on par with any symphfolk effort from the genre. One gem after another after another after another. This one makes all the right moves and the songs range from superb to downright breathtaking. Sensational musicianship throughout that is restrained and serves the songs tremendously well. This is music where the musicians appear to know just how fantastic the songs are and the reverence with which they are treated comes shining though.

The vocals from Monteduro and the background harmonies are excellent throughout, and while the songs are often fleshed out with fairly elaborate, symphonic touches, the album maintains a certain intimacy that is returned to frequently.

On CD, both the 1995 BMG Italy version and the old Japanese release on Edison are fantastic. These sound as if they originate from the same digital master. The BMG Italy mini lp sleeve adds some wacky (and IMO, completely unnecessary) EQ and is vastly inferior to the earlier versions.
