4 stars Second ( and I think one of most popular) album of the gods of Italian Progresive (RPI) PFM is all you wanna find in that kind of music: melodism, perfect arrangements, strong scent of classical music and baroque.

Compared with their debut, this album is much more better. More focused and well balanced, it contains of real mix of sympho-elements and rock structures and drives. For a first time in group's music you can hear not how few classicaly trained young musicians trying to play their beloved clasical music in a manner of rock-band. No, there is real melted sound, no one of two components is dominating. So, result is realy very attractive: less sweet, more rhythm, complex structures, pulsation of ideas and sounds. Right here I start to believe,that they are leading team of period's Italian Progresive.

I can recommend this album to anyone interested in searching Italian Progresive of 70-th as very strong and representative example.
