5 stars Unfairly underrated album by one of the top italian prog bands of the seventies. It's really difficult to include this album into one or another style. Not truly progressive (and that's the reason for the cold reception, after such gems like "Concerto Grosso" or "UT"), but approach it like an art-rock album and you'll not be disappointed. While "Aldebaran" and "Quella carezza della sera" were two of the most successful ballads from the late seventies all over Europe (especially in Italy and Spain), the 8 minutes operistic track "Dancing" is maybe the most "Queen-style" song I've ever heard. In spite of its title, the opener "Suite Disco" is a nice instrumental, but the whole album is dominated by very rich vocal parts (up until five vocalists in some tracks), in the vein of BeeGees or Queen. Only for really open-minded listeners.
