This is one of these albums that could make you dystopist even in a happy mood. The first shout tells us how the rest will be, very dark and intense. The opening track, Introduzione, is a masterpiece, perfect coordination while there are great differences between the distorted guitar, the shouts of desperation, piano, singer's voice. Rapidly the tracks put you in period full of breaks followed by a great cacophony leaded by the guitar and synth. Last 3 minutes are quite VDGG on his Italians I personaly finds, the dark synth then replaced by a lighter acoustic but similar breaks and feeling.

Primo incontro is the missing end of the Introduction, Secondo and Tertio are really unique in their own way, i can't think of something in the same genre and that's disapointing. Very remarquable are the cacophony and then again only voices part.

The introduction of Epilogo is exciting and the following parts with the guitars makes me think of persons who are talking to each other, i don't really know is that was the point but it gave me this feeling. The instrumental part a bit later makes me think of someone thinking but thats maybe my strange mind ;P. Well that hole jamming on the bass beat is very weird but then again very highly appreciated, oh and didn't the end makes you think of Atom Heart mother ? Same magik combination.

I recommend it highly to anyone interested in progressive rock and experimental rock, it's very more intensive than casual italien symphonic, that i really appreciate. Even the bonus-track from the 1994 release is a masterpiece, short but so heavy...
