5 stars This is Italian progressive rock in it's very best form.

What makes this progressive? I wouldn't even know where to begin. The album is conceptual, it has themes that return time and again inventively modified, the music is programmatic, the music is demanding yet likeable, the musicians play at a highly skilled level without going into musical athletics for athletic's sake, and Aldo has taken his understanding of electric guitar to new heights. Given how good Le Orme was in their classic period, I consider all of those reasons an excellent justification for giving this one five stars.

But there's one more reason. I LIKE this one better. I listen to this more often than I do to their two classic albums, Felona e Sorona and Uomo di Pezza. This one just clicks with me because of the excellent composition of the album throughout.

So 5 stars for a band that has managed the trick of capturing the magic of their heyday once again. There aren't many that have done it successfully.
