4 stars This album is quite different from In Limine and people liking their first two releases might be a bit disappointed by it. Whereas the two predessors were deeply rooted in the tradition of 70's Italian Symphonic the compositions on In Ogni Luogo are more modern and mainly straight with little or no complexity at all. One can realize some parallels to Fabio Zuffanti's second project HOSTSONATEN, as well as some NeoProg- resemblance in songs like the opening Tempi Moderni or Agli Amici Sinestetici. Nevertheless I find it a quite good and a very enjoyable, also for repeated listenings suitable album (maybe apart of Snaporaz which could become a bit annoying due to the vocal samples). The music is very versatile and covers Jazz, Folk, Rock and symphonic elements. Compositions are mainly harmonic in their structure with very "ear- friendly" melodies in combination with a quite good rhythm section. Apart of two songs, one with English, the other with Italian vocals the rest of the album is all instrumental. The title song is one of the two with vocals that are very nicely presented by Francesca Lago. The second one, Continuita'dilaraneltempo is quite jazzy and consists of several parts - a quiet vocal one followed by an orchestral one with lots of mellotron and again Francesca's wonderful vocals leading into the final part starting with a quite tense atmosphere and continuing with great electric guitar play. The best and most diverse track is Coro electrico, starting quite heavily with an awesome and furious electric violin followed by a middle part full of soundscapes provided by keyboards and electric guitar and finishing with violin again in a very much oriental vein. The driving Peter's House is offering nice Jazz Rock fusion whereas the last track is finishing the album in a very quiet and atmospheric mood.

As a summary I'd like to say that In Ogni Luogo is a very diverse album with beautiful melodies without being boring at any moment and although being not as intricate and classical influenced as In Limine I would call it as almost equally good as that one. Maybe it's not recommended for those who are more in the "heavy" stuff from them but if you like HOSTSONATEN or Swedish KAIPA you might like to check it out.
