5 stars For those who like a their prog a little on the Bluesy side then JUMBO will be just the treat you have been needing. JUMBO delivers complex classic Bluesy prog in a very non-traditional Italian style. This release is in my opinion the best jumbo output although I love their earlier albums too... "Vietato..." offers great guitar work, lots of keyboards (including a mellotron), nice and complex drumming with loads of acoustic guitar. Vocals are raw and a little harsh until you get used to them... Alvaro Fella (JUMBO) has a very rough voice not unlike Joe Cocker in many ways (I only mention this as it may turn some of you softies out there off!). "Vietato..." moves in and out of many great mood swings and has a more progressive rock fit than their earlier work. This is one of those albums that after repeated listens get you quite warmed-up-to as you begin appreciating its brilliance. This album also carfully injects Acid sax solo which seems to work to perfection with the guitar ripping solos.
