3 stars I actually enjoyed this album a lot more when I wasn't giving it my full attention, I was listening to it as background music I guess you could say. After a couple of listens giving it my full attention i've come to the conclusion that is good but not excellent. There's a lot of strings,as well as orchestral moments.

"Il Dono" features acoustic guitar and flute.Vocals come in around 1 1/2 minutes. Nice sound. Bass and drums do become prominant later. "Viaggio Negli Arcipelaghi Del Tempo" is led by flute and drums and the vocals are rough sounding although there is a second vocalsist who I like better. Sax before 1 1/2 minutes and strings a minute later. Vocal melodies come in after 3 1/2 minutes. "Fuga N.1" is heavier with organ. I like it. Sax comes in as well as synths with flute. A good uptempo section comes in around 3 1/2 minutes. Orchestration and some fuzz follows. Piano after 4 minutes. It's heavy again a minute later. It settles once more with strings.

"Dio Del Silenzio" is led by strummed guitar and vocals although there are some strings and a sax solo late. "La Battaglia Degli Eterni Piani" has a pastoral intro with some strings. Menacing vocals come in before 2 1/2 minutes with a fuller sound. The tempo picks up then back to those dark vocals. "Un Uomo" is a short 2 minute track with some flute and strings joining in. "Viaggio N.2" becomes uptempo and sax comes in before 2 1/2 minutes. Drums take the spotlight after 3 minutes. "Ancora Un'Alba" opens with thunder and rain followed by strings and flute.

As Andy from Planet Mellotron states, if there's mellotron on here it's hard to pick out with all the strings and orchestral movements. Still a good album that most seem to like a lot more than I do.
