4 stars Monster Italian Symphonic Rock band,formed at late 60's,when Sicilian singer Davide ''Jimmy'' Spitaleri met the members of the beat group ''I Frammenti'', led by keyboardist Enrico Olivieri.It took the new Rome-based band about two years to refine their sound and come up with a style closer to the rising force of progressive rock.The 29th May of 1972 was the date when their debut finally sees the light entitled ''E fu il seste giorno'' on Vedette Label (re-released on CD by Vinyl Magic in 2000) with lyrics dealing with the positives and negatives of the human nature and an obscure cover featuring Spitaleri in the role of Jesus Christ!

''E fu il seste giorno'' is one of the greatest examples of the growing progressive scene in Italy.Obviously Spilateri and Olivieri are the driving forces in this debut.Spilateri has a dramatic,emotional operatic color in his voice,making every sung line a pure heaven for the listener.Olivieri performs strongly, as he uses a variety of keyboards,including heavy amounts of organ,some tasteful Classical-sounding harpsichord and a few moog solos and grooves as well.Guitarist Luciano Tambourro is another major member for the band,delivering excellent guitar breaks and some really strong riffs and solos.The final result is a great album along the lines of BANCO DEL MUTUO SOCCORSO,DEEP PURPLE,NEW TROLLS and ATOMIC ROOSTER with lots of memorable moments and a high level of musicianship.Personally I liked this one a lot and recommend it to every prog fan without any exceptions or second thoughts!Excellent stuff!
