4 stars Excellent album

Really weak start of the year - first quarter of 2009 reveals a couple of clumsy albums. The only one impressive work up to now was Berbares by Nemo. I had to wait until the release of italian band Delirium and its album Il Nome Del Vento to hear something really pleasant. For me this is the second best album of the first quarter of 2009.

The album begins irresistibly with dynamic three songs - Intro, Il Nome del Vento and Verso il Naufragio. Verso il Naufragio contains some really well-fixed elements from Van Der Graaf Generator's Theme One (thanks to Finnforest, micky and andrea; they know why...;). This song is true example how can be made really good songs using you own elements and combined with an alien element. L'Acquario delle Stelle and Luci Lontane calm down the tempo of the album with superb jazz sound. In my opinion, this is the best part of the album.

Afterthat, it came the time of more varied sound - first calm, then dynamic. I would like to mention the harmony of the genres and themes in this beautiful album. Folk-sounding flute and jazz-sounding sax play in well builded combination. Il Nome Del Vento is a kind of dramatic and philosophical album appropriate for soundtrack of drama or new wave movie. The discriminating sound rule all over the album.

Very appropriate for people who want to become more spiritual and philosophical! I wish you enjoyable listening.
