3 stars This extremely confidential band from the early seventies released only one album (but this is a common affair in the Italian genre).

This album is almost all instrumental and therefore its relation with Italian symph is not really evident but for sure, the music you will discover is genuinely seventies oriented with lush keyboards (listen to these fine mellotron lines during ''Life'') and skilled guitar play: both electric as well as acoustic, like during the pastoral and sweet ''Man'' which shows some classical influences with the use of string instruments.

At times, this work almost sound as a soundtrack like during the mellow but moving.''Love''. Accordingly, ''War'' features some predictable gunfire sounds to illustrate the theme as well as sirens screams. Not very creative I should say.

''The Moon'' is the first track to feature some vocalize and fine melody but this is far to be an exceptional track. I think that the band opted rightly for little vocals.

The closing track is divided into two different sections: while the first one features a harder keyboards attack, which is welcome after so much mellow music, the second part is totally upbeat, almost a furious jam with some jazzy flavour. It ends in a bombastic keyboards anthology.

This album is not a hidden gem of the Italian genre like there are many, but it is a pleasant album. No waves, no hurt: just good music. As such, three stars.
