4 stars In my opinion, Serendipity by Premiata Forneria Marconi is quite underrated album on PA! Not only, because of the low average rating, but because of the smaller number of ratings, too. Firstly, I would like to mention, that this album is important moment in Premiata Forneria Marconi's history. Here begins the returning point to progressive rock for the band. Although, not progressive as whole, it interrupts the non-progressive period for the band, that has began twenty years ago and continued for about four-five consecutive albums. The pop rock influence is still significant on this album, but I consider it's big return to form for the band; for me undisputed the best album since 1980's Sounare Sounare and probably since earlier, too!

The songs are interesting and very memorable, which is the strongest dignity about Serendipity. There aren't weak songs here and there are very much strong songs. I considered to count the stronger song, but I shall list here almost all of them. All around the album you can find so much store of energy. And finally this album is appropriate for everyday use. I can listen to it whenever I want too listen to music. It's one of the most listenable albums in my collection and one of the top 3 for 2008, in terms of number of lettings. Serendipity is worth enough to make you go to the store and buy it, especially if you are not orthodoxy progressive fan, but accept some other elements into the music. Around 3.6 - 3.7 stars for me; it goes in the lower section of the term: excellent addition to any prog music collection or 4 stars!
