5 stars This is clearly one of the best output of the progressive rock in Italy - Rock Progressive Italiano. All clicks well together - emotional vocals, strong instrumental moments when keyboards and drums/bass take the progressive lead like on the first track. You can hear synths, organ, piano so typical minimal prog keyboard player equipmen at these times. The first track has a fantastic development from a bit majestic early sound of prog, then vocals come in and with some tension in the synth. The bass is quite audible and muscular. The speed increases and the powerful rhythm trio is excelling turning into a futuristic Moog solo while closely supported by bass and drums. "Felona" and "Serona" are two lovely stripped-down ballads. "L'equilibrio" has a certain Genesis organ feeling in the first part; no worries because the instrumental peak with keyboard/synths chops is arriving at 2:40 - a perfect culmination albeit too short before sliding into a retrospective vocal led part. "Attese Inerte" is a showcase for the bass guitar."All'Infuori Del Tempo" gives majestic feelings with solemn keyboards and finally we distinctly hear some guitar - acoustic one. "Ritorno al nulla" sounds like an apex, all instrumentalists being busy and intense but mainly the drummer.

Excellent album; I just regret that the compositions aren't longer - the album deserves it indeed!
