Prog Reviewer
3 stars There might be an opinion including various diversitys including existence in the home country for their activities. The transition and the history of the music character including the long-term activity might have the point that should make a special mention as a result in the band in Italy.

Point that history of this band starts in 1966. Or, groping and the conversion of the directionality after member's replacement is done in an initial activity flow. This band might not be necessarily known worldwide and contribute as a result for sales of the album. However, to always improve the music character, they might not have neglected pursuing at first of the formation.

The part of the start of the activity of their music goes back to 1966. An initial member was five person organization. However, guitar player's Mauro Bertoli takes shape to leave the band at once. Years pass without so emphasizing an initial activity for respect of eminence and sales though some tunes are announced.

It might have been time in 1971 if it considered it as the first turning point concerning their initial activities. "Opera Prima" that they announced has gradually dug into to the chart. They of course and also in the part of eminence come ..the existence.. to be known gradually. The guitar player alternates to Dodi Battaglia with transfering the register label. And, Stefano D 'Orazio is newly received so that Valerio Negrini may concentrate on the charge of writing songs.

The work known well between fans for their initial works might be "Opera Prima" and be "Parsifal". And, the rule of Giancarlo Lucariello might be done and be reflected as an activity and a situation in 1975. When the part of Rock of Euro Rock and Italy was considered, the part of the content to emphasize the part of acoustic and classics might have been remarkably expressed.

The band in the United States and Britain might have influenced some situations of the music of Italy at that time. The flow that some bands had converted the direction from the part of psychedelic and Beat Rock can often be discovered. The color of Producer's Giancarlo Lucariello is a part as an initial content that had been established to some degree. the work of the band united situationsAnd, it might be in the point to have had a part progressive the music character that Red Canzian that participated in the band in place of Riccardo Fogli had and a classic part. Flow that band in Italy introduces progressive part. Baroque and classic part. And, the rhythm to recollect the element of Latin is introduced. These elements were the experiments that various bands had tried with the age and the culture. However, the music character that I Pooh had established it at this time was surely music for them. This flow is succeeded from this album to "Forse Ancora Poesia" as a result. And, it reached "Poohlover" that faced the time of conversion besides in the age. Part of union and directionality of music character that they were having them establish it at this time anyway. Or, the work at this time of them might contain an important point when talking about the history of the Rock group in Italy including eminence.

The harmony of calm Strings of "Preludio" is impressive. The construction of a beautiful melody has been remarkably expressed as much as possible in their initial works. It might be a tune where the culture of Italy and the music character were splendidly expressed. The impression of the album is decided to the flow of a flute in close relation to Strings and a gentle rhythm.

The flavor of the band in Italy appears completely in "Credo". The song and the chorus are one of the flavors of them. The melody that flows gently has a good sense of relief. Part where classic element is introduced. The usage of Strings might be suitable for the tune. It is a tune where a sense of relief and a transparent feeling were remarkably expressed.

As for "Una Storia Che Fa Ridere", the melody of the ballade with which expression of feelings overflows is impressive. The performance of the band that emphasizes an acoustic part as much as possible is calm. The interpretation of an original melody of the band in Italy is expressed well. The progress of a beautiful melody and Chord is developed as much as possible.

As for "Oceano", the song and the melody to give expression to one's feelings intensely are moving. A piano melody performs beautiful Chord. The tune performs a moving melody and gives expression to one's feelings while introducing a classic performance. The melody that Strings does is very moving. The rhythm joins on the way and the tune reaches the peak further. There might be transient expression of feelings.

A pastoral song and the melody give "Fantasia" the relief. The flow and the song that excludes decorated sound and is performed because of a minimum sound might have the part of Folk. A pastoral melody rules the whole as much as possible. Room to establish one shape as Euro Rock will be felt by me.

"Eleonora,Mia Madre" is a ballade with which expression of feelings to make good use of minor Chord overflows. The part of the obbligati of Strings and the expression of feelings appear well. An original music character of Italy has gone out of this tune as a result. Part that temporarily changes tempo of part and tune to exclude rhythm. The composition arranges a beautiful melody and the rhythm as much as possible.

A beautiful piano melody and the song pull the tune to "1966". Melody of moving chorus. Using majors Chord and minor Chord properly might be good. Development to recollect Acqua Fragile is a little splendid. And, the tune makes feelings revealing and receives the top. And, the impression of the tune is decided to the expression of feelings melody faced again.

It is a tune to emphasize the part of "Orient Express" overall, pastoral Folk. Part of Chord of beautiful guitar. The melody of Strings and a gentle song gives the listener the relief. The composition of the tune that completely excludes the rhythm might show the feature of this album.

"Il Tempo,Una Donna,La Citta" is a tune that a classic element and Rock of Italy unite splendidly. Melody of moving Strings. Song that let one's feelings show and gentle piano melody. Part of calculated chorus. Melody to emphasize sense of relief and transparent feeling. The flavor of Euro Rock is completely expressed.

They have them refine music further in the age. However, the content of the work at this time that they did might surely be beautiful. It is indispensable existence when talking about the history of the band in Italy.
