Prog Reviewer
3 stars Such a good album like this one, whose righter rate probably is "3 stars and an half", has been always represented within the recent re-mastered works of the early 70's Italian "Pop-prog" collection: that's a transition period to their definitive maturity, whose apex in that period corresponded with the issue of "Vietato ai minori di anni 18?" (bad title but never mind) all over Europe, until they reached their top shape during some live gigs abroad. An interesting album which is not so far from some proto-progressive works of late sixties, talking about their lyrics above all, despite of carrying on a lot of good music ideas, acquired gradually afterwards. In fact the remarkable use of the guitar and the flute in the same time was a pleasant interplay and a solid background for the next Italian progressive works to come,but also an intelligent manner to re-discover a fertile and unforgettable period for the majority of the Italian bands in the seventies (for instance the harsh style of the vocalist has been often taken as a reference for groups like that one of "Biglietto per L'Inferno")...apart from the ingenuosness of some breaks-through, which make it deserve an inferior score, the development of the songs inside the album is excellent and the arrangement supported by a clever text as well!

Check it out!
