4 stars It is amazing to see how many Italian bands released one great album and then disappeared. It must have been a contagious disease, unfortunately.

This one fully belongs to the description as well. One little piece back in late mid-seventies, and gone was "Sensitiva Immagine". The music proposed here fully shares the bill of the usual suspects from the genre. There are of course some fine and melodic parts, but mixed with more upbeat (even wild) passages like during the impressive "Overture".

The mood is softer during the long "Ai Confini Del Mundo". Peaceful vocals and very soft keyboard play provides a lot of delicacy to this tune which also features an almost classical part before the sweet finale. The second highlight from this album.

"La Favola?" which sounds very much like the early "Genesis" shows moving instrumental sections and as usual with most good Italian bands, the melody catches all of your senses. Very good track again.

The original album closed on the instrumental title track. The mood is a bit darker but still very much oriented to the symphonic scene ("Genesis" again, and to a lesser extent "Camel" or even "Fruupp"). The band was also using masks during their live sets (don't look no further for their filiation).

The bonus tracks are not too bad: "Intro" which opens the re-edition is another good piece of music (but there was already "Overture" as opening of the original recording), "Quel Que Resta" is a tranquil rock ballad, the additional version of "Harlem" is supposedly the first one recorded by the band. But to have reduced the live version of the title track to a meagre two minutes is something I can't cope with. The less enjoyable is the instrumental "La Giornata" which features a drum solo

In all, each Italian symphonic prog lover should enjoy this very pleasant album.

Four stars.
