4 stars Premiata Forneria Marconi finally decided to try with full time vocalist, instead of a couple of vocalists. And so they bring in Bernardo Lanzetti, a man who speaks english fluently. They decided to make original album in english, instead of english cover version. I think this decision was made, because of the willingness to broke the international market. I think the english language experience for such a band is not the right decision. This italian band cannot arrange its music, when the vocal is in english as well as in italian! The new vocalist is something absolute different for the band. His voice reminds me Peter Gabriel. And the whole music on the album reminds me Genesis, too! Not only because of the vocals, but because of the compositions as whole. In my opinion, this is the last negative moment on the album. Everything else is so fresh and mercurial. All songs of the album have the same high quality. The album is lined with very courageous progressions and musical virtuosity. The violin and guitar solos are remarkable. Of course, Chocolate Kings is weaker than Storia di un minuto, Per un amico and L'Isola di niente, but not quite much! 4 stars!!!
