Prog Reviewer
3 stars This band is categorized as genuine Italian symphonic prog music; which means splendid and melodic vocals, superb musicianship, and wonderful soundscapes.

A glorious definition, should I say. The honesty though leads me to warn some (most?) of you: these "Watcher Of The Skies" lines have been so many times borrowed already. What's the need to duplicate the feeling, please???

The epic "Canto" is so much filled with these sounds that I can hardly be thrilled: too much is too much. Of course pleasant, yes. But no more. Sounds more as a neo-prog hymn than anything else.

Keyboards are quite encouraging and pleasant. They are definitely providing a deep emotion and imprint the minds. Still, there aren't any development la "Apocalypse in 9/8" from the magnificent "Supper's Ready". But I admit that the model is hard to match so; no what's the need to try out?

The closing part is bombastic and powerful, for sure. A good piece of prog, that's not the question. Is this essential? That's another question. My answer is : no.

Most of the other songs featured do confirm the initial feel: a very strong borrowing item. This is my opinion. Played with skills. Sung with care. My fave moments being the instrumental parts though (no guitar, but gorgeous keys).

This "Tempo Di Far La Fantasia" is a good album. Three stars. Too much a copy of whom you might know. I'm just walking across the sitting room?
