4 stars Campo Di Marte is an album that has both very gentle acoustic instrumentation and raw rocking parts with sharp guitars and energetic drums. Mellotrons, flutes, horns, organs and the occasional vocal complete the sound. The more upbeat parts such as Sesto Tempo remind me very much of Il Balleto Di Bronzo and Semiramis. The more gentle parts and vocals bring PFM to mind, be it without the synths.

The music is very narrative. From scene to scene it follows some kind of story line about war and peace. The result is a very eclectic album that can be very delicate and harmonious, pastoral even, before taking a twist and throwing in hard rock riffs and energetic playing. The secret that glues it all together is the superb quality of the melodies, the inspired compositions and the lively recording of the material.

There are certain forces on PA that want to convert me to a dedicated RPI fan. Well guys, I haven't been a fan of any particular 'genre' since ages, but if you keep digging up albums like this I will have a hard time resisting. Special thanks to Sinkadotentree for this one!
