5 stars Per un amico is a pure and simple (?) Masterpiece. The first thing to say is that, compared with influences that PFM is credited to have received from the british way of sound, I do not know something about Genesis or Yes, but only a pinch of GG and KC. The rest is pure Italian soul, I say "padana" music, if anyone of you knows what is the Pianura Padana and the fog and the history of Italy and the farmhouses and even the music in those medieval times in Italy. Just to say that this is popular lombard music, moist and warm at the same time, with a very little of Mediterranean sound and much more in terms of interior atmospheres. Many people are surprised regarding Italians have such a great closeness with music. They are the same people who were born yesterday and do not know the History nor the history of music. Please, where they were born Monteverdi, Vivaldi, Paganini, Verdi, Rossini, Puccini and some others. Reading here it seems that music has been invented in England. One last thing: there are jazz advances in this disc or fusion music that just a more informed musician can hope to feel . PS: musicianship here is much more better than the other english successful amateurs who learned to know their instrumentsl while trying to play them (and that's said with respect and admiration).
