Rock Progressivo Italiano

4 stars Expect one of the most versatile Italian prog albums if this really still falls into the RPI genre. The bunch of very gifted musicians (both composers and instrumentalists) meet to release a very sophisticated and mature debut album. Soft melodic moments full of harmony ("Al Mancato Compleanno Di Una Farfalla"), more typical Italian prog tracks with excellent orchestra instruments (C'E Un Paese Al Mondo), instrumental tracks of pure progressive heaven with flute, keyboards ("Fase"), slight Canterbury influence with ("Elzeviro") and even some classick rock and blues-rock licks, this is a very appealing combination and balance of skilled composing and playing.

The voice is soothing and fits greatly for an Italian Prog band sung in Italian. Italian prog puts strong emphasis on keyboards and also here we have multiple instrumentalists capable to playing some "key" instruments, which results in keyboard layers and fine sound. Highly recommended as it stands on its own in the vast RPI set of albums.
