5 stars Welcome the Banco's world with full of their essence and Italian flavour!

We can feel the atmosphere of the last supper though we can't understand Italian lyrics. Starting with solemn ceremony on the first track ...A Cena, Per Esempio, Francesco's flat but plain voice spreads over us. I think he's not a well-skilled vocalist (sorry!), but wonder why his voice hits us strongly and sentimentally. Il Ragno, Č Cosģ Buono Giovanni, Ma... are exactly Giancomorld I wanna say. But we can't feel peace of mind ever. Slogan, Si Dice Che I Delfini Parlino are more avantgarde part of this album, then we should be pushed actively by the medulla of Italian rock world.

The point of this work is absolutely the 6th track Voilą Mida (Il Guaritore) I'm sure. This track is the real mixture of Italian avantgarde, progressive, classic, ...etc. etc. rocks. Maybe we can't enjoy an massive Italian flavourS in only one song. Very fantastic they could make such a product easily...

From start to end, we should be hit and moved by the work and story. Indeed there is not an aggressiveness of earlier Banco (like Darwin!), but there is APPLIED and MATURED Banco in front of us. I can't help saying them OOKINI (Thanks) for the wonderful album.
