3 stars Hard to find, but worth it.

If you are looking for a hard to find arch-typical Rock Progressivo Italiano (RPI) album, this is perhaps the one for you. The album even comes with two different covers on two different record labels and an not so impressive booklet.

The music here is very typical for Italy. Virtuous guitars, keyboards, woodwinds, flute, bass and drums playing with an good vocalist on the top. The music is both tender, slightly jazz orientated, symphonic and heavy at times. This album is slightly more ELP orientated than most RPI albums. Their version of Hall Of Mountain King of Edvard Grieg is pretty good too.

My gripes about this album is that the sound quality is also pretty dubious and the quality of the songs are good, but not great. This album is a bit of a generic RPI album. But it is still a good album well worth checking out if you can find it. I am satisfied owner of this album, but nothing more.
