Area70
5 stars On of the high points from one of Italy's top five prog bands. As the band entered their mid- period, this release finds them both stripping down their elaborate sound but at the same time firing out in a very confident manner. There's less emphasis on the heavier aspects found earlier in their career, more of a stripped down sound lending itself to "quick strike" melodies, all the while always featuring one of the strongest, most charismatic singers in the Italian scene.

Banco will always be known for its intricate appraoch to keyboards, but this album always struck me for its emphasis on melodic guitar work, as well as its overall top-rate production. A definite recommendation to those who might (incorrectly) think that Italian prog was in a tailspin by the mid-Seventies.
