3 stars My frist impression of this art work was...DEPRESSIVE & DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND.

Suddenly this 'eavy guitarwork and dark strings...then what happened on IL PAESE DEI BALOCCHI? I suggesut this early 70s' heavy Italian progressive rock ART should be one of albums which could open the RPI world. Lead guitar, bass, drum & percussion, keyboard and strings...there are many kinds of instrumentals, and all of them are heavy, dark, and depressive. Sometimes vocal can wrap the instrumentals but the atmosphere can't get clear or bright but darker and more depressive. Refraining dark phrases will make us listeners drop the depth down. And the album has finished as we can't stand our mind up. We can see another side of Italian progressive rock world and I'm sure it should be worth for listening as EARLY ITALIAN DARK PROG ART.

In the Mellow label's reissue version are two bonus tracks. I beg your pardon but I think these bonus tracks are not worth for listening. How pop they are...

At any rate, I can recommend you this album if you love depression or darkness and you're an Italian progressive rock freak...LIKE ME. :P Anyway, I'm at a loss whether I should give this album 3 stars or tell the truth, I wanna give 3.5 stars, essencially.
