4 stars The derivation of music in the early the especially 1970's and the appearance of diversity might have shown the respect from all angles in various fields. The derivation of the music character since The Beatles might have infiltrated the market of the music of Italy with the form of Beat Rock. It is also true that the element of Prog Rock that is becoming a main current to say nothing of the flow had acted enough.

The form accomplishes the revolution further. The band that performs as a flow to which individuality and the culture are taken from the part of Rock appears gradually by the band's in Italy carrying everything before one of the market. The flow that derives from the part of Beat Rock and psychedelic is multiplied from in the early the 70's to middle term and strengthens further. The band to be confident of the performance appears one after another and the part of Beat Rock and psychedelic has the flow that shifts to the next stage. And, the flow and the directionality of the band in Italy had the flow that gave priority to a performance and a progressive part further. The activity of the band in Italy that became a main current in the market and the chart rushes into from the dawn to the time of the expansion temporarily. In the flow, the activity of this Il Volo might have shown the existence as a band that represented the music of Italy of the 70's.

The existence of guitar player's Alberto Radius and keyboard player's Gabriele Lorenzi might be important in the background of details continued with shape that "Formula Tre" that is not the exaggeration to say the antecedent of this band develops. And, following work with Numero Uno accomplishes advancement and the revolution further in this Il Volo.

Their debut albums were produced in March, 1974. The flow that the tune of the member of the band unites splendidly in the part of poetry by Mogol might have had the flow developed while exactly following the music character of Formula Tre.

The music character of this band develops greatly further in 1975. Alberto Radius and Gabriele Lorenzi are related to a lot of tunes. The song has shifted as a content of this album in the form to emphasize the part of the performance further. Music with diversity to make the listener listen with 1st Album might evolve further by this album. Their original expression of feelings and performance have been digested in a good direction.

"Gente In Amore" produces the atmosphere of symphonic for you may accompany the dash feeling from the sound with the anacatesthesia. Melody of acoustic guitar in close relation to melody with expression of feelings. Sound of decoration that twines while continuing anacatesthesia and part of scat. Their expression of feelings is splendidly expressed. The performance where the part and the dash feeling in which the rhythm of Latin is taken overflow is splendid.

"Medio Oriente 249000 Tutto Compreso-Canto Di Lavoro" progresses with the flow of good symphonic from the melody that is reminiscent of the element of the Middle East. Rhythm and melody developed one after another. Chorus who had good atmosphere. Progress of Chord that has both anacatesthesia and expression of feelings. The tune accompanies the melody with an enchantment chorus while being dash before long in the space. Solo of the Electric sitar by Alberto Radius also decides the atmosphere of the tune.

"Essere" flows quietly with the progress of a good keyboard. It might be a good material for the band that this band is characterized and two people exist the guitar player and the keyboard player. It is symphonic with complete expression of feelings. It produces complete ensemble as Groove. The progress of original expression of feelings that the band in Italy at that time had and peculiar Chord is completely expressed.

"Alcune Scene" produces quiet power to flow incessantly. Rhythm that multiuses rhythm of six. The part where the melody that was it was taken while putting fast and slow might be splendid. The tune dashes on the top.

"Svegliandomi Con Te Alle Sei Del Mattino" is a tune that the melody of the synthesizer unites with a good anacatesthesia in the rhythm of gentle Latin. Solo in which the guitar is glossy is splendid. The sound and the obbligati of the shining keyboard are complete. The tune heads gradually for the top. This arrangement might be also splendid.

In "Canti e Suoni", the sound of a gentle song and a peculiar keyboard is features. An original arrangement and the progress of Chord have good atmosphere. The idea of the song processed by the effect acts on the tune well. The zeal of ensemble and the band might be splendidly reflected in the tune.

The music that this Il Volo did including the age and the music character when thinking about Prog Rock of Italy of the 70's and existence might be indispensable.
