5 stars What a fantastic music!!! It's rare example of Italian prog from 70-th, which is coming without musical schoolboys chorals, church music and baroque pretty-sweet banchettos.

You have REAL avant-jazz-fusion-prog with volcanic energy there. No jokes!

First song "Luglio,Agosto,Settembre (Nero) " is started with female voice ( in arabic), and continues with hot Balcanic dance. ( I lived in Balkans some years,they have fantastic musical legacy there!). But don't be mistaken - all other album is different. Strong vocal of Greek/Egyptian origin vocalist Demetrion Stratos will lead you during all the album. Music is very complex and ... fantastic! High technique mixture of heavy gutar, keybords, pulsating bass line - and classic elements in it.

All songs are very individual, of complex construction, plenty of improvisation in its. Drums are at the highest point!

All musicians are extra-virtuossos, the musica they 're producing - of highest possible standard.

Absolutely perfect album!!! Strongly recommended to anyone inetresting in prog-rock of highest level!
