4 stars This is my favourite NEW TROLLS related album. Quite a change in styles from all that has gone before with this band as they wander over to the Jazz-Rock genre on this one.Two side long suites in this all-instrumental recording.

"7/4 (Settequarti)" has some impressive atmosphere early as sax, bass and drums come and go. It kicks in before 2 1/2 minutes. It settles again a minute later with intricate guitar which turns fairly aggressive 4 1/2 minutes in. Nice. Sax is prominant then piano 6 1/2 minutes in. Horns lead before 9 minutes then the tempo picks up with sax and bass leading. It settles with piano and guitar 12 minutes in then the sax and drums join in as it builds. Sax and keys dominate after 15 minutes. Excellent track.

"13/8 (Trediciottavi)" is a more intense track but not to start out as the keys and guitar echo. Bass 5 minutes in as the tempo picks up. Distorted guitar after 6 minutes and it's building. They let it rip after 7 1/2 minutes. Organ before 10 minutes in an intense section with sax and drums dominating. Guitar is back 11 minutes.

This cd will definitely go in my Jazz / Fusion section and for me it's an easy 4 stars.
