5 stars One of the best Italian prog albums. What I have to point out that Italian vocal not always fits into Rock (for me), but this is not the case. Quite the contrary? I cannot imagine anything else for this particular long prog suite inspired by immortal Dante's "Divine Comedy". Perhaps this is because it is nothing but powerful vocals of opera quality, and, in our minds, Italians are still unsurpassed masters in this genre. The suite is divided into 12 parts, and thanks to producers, there are no breaks between the parts. Whatever the source of inspiration for this album, it works at a high level. Simply put, this album is sheer joy. It has everything that fans of the symphonic prog want. Does it have an ELP in it? Yes, in some kind of stylizing way? and this makes it even more enjoyable.

10 years ago, the Japanese independent prog label Belle Antique released 'Inferno' in its Italian Rock Mini LP SHM-CD series. The liner notes say: "Digitally Remastered in Japan by Shuichi Takano, Cands Music". Now I have listened to it again in my hi-end system, and I can say: the sound quality fits firmly into the category "Best". Thank you, Mr. Takana for the remarkable job. Now the best part: January 25, 2020, long out of print release, will again see the light of day as the Limited Encore Press reissue (along with 'Alphataurus'). That's why I write all this? because 'Inferno' deserves much more attention from us. Do not miss the opportunity to get such a nice album in the best sound and physical presentation that only the Japanese are willing to do. 5 stars from inferno.
