3 stars Good album.

This Citta' di Frontiera, the CALLIOPE's second album, was my first CALLIOPE. As generally said, new Italian progressive rock bands should be sometimes influenced by English progressive rock, and I'm afraid CALLIOPE should be...I think my estimation is a little correct. Well, this phenomenon is not so bad. Their album is constructed by lots of naturally heavy rock songs, and the songs sometimes make their rhythm varied UNNATURALLY. I suppose the unnaturally-varied rhythm was done by them for neo-Italian prog style. But I'm sure it's absolutely okay. Because they seems to be very happy to play the music by CALLIOPE's style and their songs are so hard but so pleasant. The instrumentals and vocal are very lively and even charming. Indeed I cannot recommend this album as a typical masterpiece of Italian progressive rock, but can as a straight rock album. Enjoy it!
