3 stars This is another good album from this Italian band. Still, I was expecting a bit more of it after reading the reviews previously posted. Their third album is less psychedelic than their first two opus, but it is still quite different from the traditional Italian offering.

The music played is darker, heavier. The easiest reference that I can find is obviously ELP: you can find a combination of classic piano, but bombastic organ passages as well which will remind you of this great band.

No regressive music here since they were contemporaries. But a deep similarity. There are little breathless moments, few opportunities to say: wow! In general, the album flows nicely: one mini suite after the other.

Little weaknesses either: this is a well balanced album which could please a broad range of fans: ELP ones, heavy prog ones as well as the genuine Italian amateur.

This is a pleasant but not an impressive album. Three stars.
