5 stars This is the essense of progress. One year after the disappointing "Io Come Io", Il Rovescio Della Medaglia released their best album and one of the best Italian prog rock albums. "Contaminazione" is a concept album based on J.S. Bach. Their sound is much more symphonic. The addition of Franco Di Sabbatino on keyboards was an excellent choice by the band. The combination of guitars and keyboards is magnificent and the production is great for a 1973 album. You can hear pure classical music here which turns into symphonic prog rock, I mean typical Italian prog rock at its best. The vocals are very good, but the main thing is the high compositional level from start to finish, the artistic orchestration and the sequence of the songs. The concept flows through the speakers and before you know it, it's over and then you play it again, and again, and again. A true masterpiece of progressive rock music. It is really hard to pick some songs as album highlights. My favourite moments in "Contaminazione": "Cella 503", "Alzo Un Muro Elettrico", "La Grande Fuga".
