3 stars This is Italian band GENFUOCO's sole studio album released in 1979. I must admit that this album fails to do much for me. I suppose it's just my taste in music I don't know.The tempo and mood shifts seem awkward and abrupt to my ears. I noticed that right away on the first track but when this continued I figured maybe that's just their style but it seems forced and not smooth or natural in the least.

"Ouverture" is solemn with drums, synths and sax early on. It settles with acoustic guitar and atmosphere then picks up some 3 minutes in. Sax is back before 5 minutes. "Dalia Tana" features vocals for the first time, flute too in this mellow track. "Traspare" is led by flute and piano in this pastoral beginning. Drums 1 1/2 minutes in then guitar and sax after 2 minutes. A calm with fragile vocals after 3 minutes. Relaxed sax after 5 minutes to end it. "Terra Promessa (Parte 1)" opens with the sound of wind and faint piano. Vocals1 1/2 minutes in.

"Terra Promessa (Parte 2)" has a good beat with flute and synths, bass too. Vocals before 2 minutes as it gets fuller. Percussion and guitar 4 minutes in. "Galassie" starts with acoustic guitar. Sax after a minute. A change 2 1/2 minutes in as drums arrive. Reserved vocals before 3 1/2 minutes. "La Serenata Del Fiume" opens with acoustic guitar then reserved vocals join in.Vocal melodies too. "Dentro L'invisibile" opens with the sound of waves with synths and a beat. I like this. The tempo picks up after 2 minutes unfortunately as the synths disappear and the vocals come in. Female vocals too.

This has it's moments but barely 3 stars.
