4 stars The debut album by this 70's Italian group with many influences of which the most notable are folk, psychedelic and even some classical. The band is probably most known of the dreamy (and sometimes out of tune) vocals by Jane Sorrenti (aka Jenny Sorrenti), the sister of Alan Sorrenti. I like her vocals, suits the music quite nicely. Alan Sorrenti himself participates in one track. It 's clear that the weird vocal acrobatics go in the family. Jane's vocals are as unique as Alan's in his masterpiece "Aria". Apart from Jane's great vocals, which are an acquired taste, there is especially some very nice piano and acoustic guitar. Robert Fix plays sax in this debut album unlike in their other album, the follow-up "La Casa del Lago". The overall sound of this debut album is acoustic and medieval.

It's hard to point out any specific tracks because this album is good from beginning to end. There are not any highlights that really stand out but there are not any weak tracks either. However, I have to say that this album is probably not even for all Italian prog enthusiasts.

Conclusion: Great folk/psychedelic album.
