3 stars E.A.POE is another band from the mass of those 70's Italian bands, who recorded just one album in their career and disappeared soon after due to the lack of promotion.They started in 1967 from the town of Ornago under the name ''Angelo e gli spacemen'',but soon Angelo would quit and the rest of the members adapted E.A.POE as their name.The good live activity of the band around the area led them to a release of an album called ''Generazioni'' in 1974 on Kansas Label (in 1991 re-issued by Vinyl Magic on CD).

The album contains elements both of Symphonic Rock and Classic Progressive Rock,making their style quite abstract and undefienable.Some cuts in ''Generazioni'' are very well-crafted, dominated by the dark organ sounds,light classical piano,soft vocals and pastoral acoustic guitars (and even some mandolin), resembling to a Symphonic Rock band,close to the sound of PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI.In some others it's the star of guitarist Beppe Ronco,who really signs.Leaving his pastoral mood apart,he fills the musicianship with fast guitar chords and jazzy passages, which battle with Giorgio Foti's organ all the time.Speaking of Foti,this album contains some of the most obscure keyboard works I've ever heard,being trully memorable yet haunting and complicated at the same time!E.A.POE would soon disband,releasing just a couple of singles after ''Generiazioni'',however this album can be regarded as one of the respectable and solid efforts of 70's Italian Progressive Rock...3.5 stars and strongly recommended!
