4 stars There is a lot of reviews of this album on PA so I will keep my own review brief.

This is supposed to be one of the cornerstones of the Italian symphonic prog scenes. My knowledge about this scene is not good. But I do understand why this album is rated so highly. The title track alone is worthy a lot of praise.

The music here is both symphonic and at times; both heavy and pastorial. In general; I would put this album among the more darker and heavy Italian symphonic prog albums. Not heavy as in heavy metal, but heavy as in the meaning of heavy orchestrated and difficult to penetrate. This album requires a lot of time. In particular; the twenty minutes plus long title track. The three other tracks are also excellent.

The music is mellotron and hammond driven with some guitars and piano adding extra texture. The music reminds me about the old baroque movement from the 16th century. The vocals are excellent throughout, although they are perhaps not everybody's cup of tea. The drums and the bass is excellent throughout. The overall quality is therefore excellent and the album is a gem. Is it a cornerstone in this scene ? Probably yes. My only gripe is the lack of an outstanding track and the x factor. But this is still an excellent album.

4.5 stars
