5 stars If you're not a fan of Banco's vocalist Francesco Mr. Chubbs DiGiacomo, then this is the album for you. Banco's DI TERRA is entirely instrumental. I can't really comment on individual tracks since the whole thing flows together and is best taken in one sitting. DI TERRA, to my ears is one of the finest examples of fusing orchestral music with rock and jazz(the others being Jade Warrior's WAY OF THE SUN and Caravan's CARAVAN AND THE NEW SYMPHONIA). To my ears, this is what Ottorino Respighi might sound like if he'd formed a rock band. Again, DI TERRA must be listened to in one sitting to fully appreciate its sublime beauty. Definitely a desert island disc and nothing short of a prog.rock masterpiece. If you're a fan of Banco's vocalist Francesco Mr. Chubbs DiGiacomo, you'll be disappointed(he doesn't appear here at all). Perhaps this is why the album is under the band name of _BANCO_ instead of the full BANCO DEL MUTUO SOCCORSO.
Gooner | 5/5 |
