3 stars As others have noted this Italian band sounds very much like the Jimi Hendrix Experience.The vocals although in Italian sound like Jimi as does the guitar.

"Maya Desnuda" is perhaps the most Hendrix-like with the guitar and vocals early on especially. Although the singing is in Italian he mentions Superman and James Brown sex machine in his singing. Lots of organ in this one too. "Decomposizione, Preludio E Pace" opens with experimental sounding guitar until late when it turns mellow and blends into "26 Febbraio 1700" . I like this.The vocals 1 1/2 minutes in are again Hendrix-like. "L'ultima Graziosa" opens with lots of guitar and the vocals arrive when it settles. Contrasts continue. Piano before 3 minutes then harmonica (I think). Piano and organ trade off before guitar and vocals end it.

"Moretto De Brescia" is the final suite divided into 3 parts. First is "Goffredo" with the tasteful guitar intro with light drums and keyboards. Fragile vocals before a minute. The guitar then starts to almost soar. Keyboards take over and vocals return late. "Il Giardino Del Re" is mellow to start almost spacey in fact. I like it.It picks up a minute in.The guitar sounds great before 2 minutes then it's the organ's turn. Reserved vocals before 3 1/2 minutes. A calm after 5 minutes then drums and guitar come in. Great sound ! Organ 7 minutes in and it still sounds incredible. "Dolce Come Sei Tu" opens with vocals and a mellow soundscape. A beat with laid back guitar after 3 minutes to the end.

A good album especially the second half, but the first half is a little too Hendrix-like.
