3 stars 3.5 stars. I wouldn't say that the music on this record is very proggy, in fact it's quite commercial sounding at times. But as long as Aldo is singing i'm happy, and there are no instrumentals on this album.

"Insieme Al Concerto" opens with a one minute uptempo melody before the vocals and a calm arrive. Man when he sings when the full sound returns, it just makes me smile. Guitar and drums are both prominant. Some nice organ late. "In Ottobre" opens fairly powerfully with drums and organ before the vocals come in. Tempo continues to change. Great organ 2 minutes in followed by some excellent guitar a minute later as drums pound. A calm before 5 minutes followed by a catchy percussion / drum led passage. "Verita Nascoste" opens with gentle guitar and vocals. Beautiful. A string section helps out as well.

"Vedi Amsterdam..." is experimental sounding to open before organ then an uptempo melody.Vocals after 1 1/2 minutes. A nice heavy sound follows. Organ runs 4 1/2 minutes in as drums pound. "Regina Al Troubadour" is a catchy track with some mellotron. I like the mellow sections, but it's all good. Great sound 5 minutes in and check out the drumming. Organ ends it. "Radiofelicita" opens with strummed guitar before those amazing vocals join in. Synths and drums take over 2 minutes in. I like the heavy beat that comes in at 4 minutes, but I don't like the way it speeds up. "I Salmoni" features fast paced vocals and a good beat. "Il Gradino Piu Stretto Del Cielo" has some really good guitar as vocals come in. Guitar returns 4 minutes in ripping it up to end it.

Not as bad as the previous album of course, but a far cry from their earlier classic albums. Not quite 4 stars but still an enjoyable record.
