3 stars Released in 1998, sounds like 1973.

This band was active in the 1970s, but never came around to release anything. Thankfully, they released three studio albums and one live album in the 1990s.

I very much like their ambient, pastorial sound. It is a mix of Genesis and PFM. It is also very much an arch-Italian sound with long and epic slow-tempo songs. Some of these songs are hymn like. The main instrument is retro-keyboards like Hammonds. That and Maurizio Mercandino's vocals. This is very much a vocals dominated album. The melodies here are pretty subtle and understated. Very Italian in other words.

Unfortunate, there is no real superb songs here. The title track is really good. The rest of the album has some good pieces of music, but there are not many of them. This album is really anonymous and does not stand out from the crowd. I think it is a good album and I will carry it with me for the next forty years and I may change my opinion about it. But this album is merely a good album. Mostly because of it's vintage sound. No less, no more.
