4 stars In 1974 the guys of what remained of the original NT line-up felt the golden age of symphonic rock was over (though in 1976 with the Concerto Grosso n.2 they attempted to recreate the early '70 atmospheres -without success). So they made a completely U-Turn towards jazz-fusion. I know that this word will make some of you run like hell, and infact this seems to be a totally different group from the one which was able to release such albums as CG n.1, Ut or Searching for a land. But wait a minute and you will find the listening rewarding, mostly because of the great technical ability and of some truly beautiful passages. It took courage to change so rudely the musical direction, even considering that they could lose part of their public (and it proved to be so), but "Tempi dispari" remains an excellent effort, that every adventurous listener should check out.
