5 stars Is this a good studio comeback for Delirium? Yes... only that this studio comeback is excellent!

Andprobably is important to note that if you wait another 'Dolce Acqua' you are outside of the road. In first because 'Il Nome Del Vento' (eng: 'The Name Of The Wind') is more King Crimson oriented but also because this album is an album of another band. In fact 'Dolce Acqua' is a sort of Ivano Fossati's album. But sure 'Il Nome Del Vento' remember me 'Lo Scemo Ed Il Villaggio' or 'Delirium III' also if the music leads my mind also to the last single of I Sagittari. So 'Il Nome Del Vento' is a true powerful and melodic studio comeback.

Some days ago, in a private Italian broadcasting, I see a part of a concert of 'Festivalshow', an traveling events with band / artists old and new. I see this version of Delirium that plays 'Jesahel'... Arrgghhh!!! Unfortunately, I am sorry... But that is a song of Ivano Fossati. These Delirium... These Delirium are another band. Ok, if I speak about sound I speak of a very melodic sound but the style remaind my mind to King Crimson more that Jethro Tull. This is true from 'L'Acquario Delle Stelle' but i think that this fact is more recognizable because this album is recorded better that 70's albums. The lyrics are essentials, in some cases the lyrics are forced but the sung complete extreme well the instrumental parts.

Certainly 'Il Nome Del Vento' is not revolutionary or emotional album. Sure, however, 'Il Nome Del Vento' is another fundamental album for your great discography
