4 stars The sound has not changed much in comparison to the previous album but it is slightly less raw and vocals prevent from getting much focus on instrumental prowess. Arguably there is less space for brass instrument and more vocalized sections. Drums are usually more aggressive and fast then on the debut album which might attrack additional listeners.

"Valzer per domani" is an elegant waltz with violin and plenty of drum variety. "Mifafori" reveals the devilish fusion speed behind the drums unmatched by most other fusion acts.

This part reminds of Mahavishnu Orchestra also because of aggressive guitar and violin duel. The third track "Saper sentire" is a modernized track with funky keyboards and plenty of good vocals.

"Mescal" is very close to Mahavishnu Orchestra sound especially where violin dominates. Excellent furious drumming is evident here, too. This is a high quality track with many changes in its 5 minutes. Nice organ and piano contributions are in the short "Nove lune dopo". "Dimensione terra" has a great Canterbury feeling and reveals an optimistic feeling.

The tenth with the long name finally features a typical light fusion guitar a la Larry Coryell and drums are kept less dominant.

The most expressive drumming monemt comes with "Sagra" with drums running around at wild pace are contrast to normal paced piano and keyboards. "Rinuncia" is more reminiscent of typical Italian progressive rock and less of fusion. "Marilyn" has asynchronous drums with clavinet/spinet and synth layers. "Terminal" goes again back to a reference manual by Mahavishnu Orchestra.
