3 stars This album from Italy is a bit of a surprise.

Released at the end of the nasty 1980s, this album has been a bit bypassed by those who are looking for a good Symph/Neo Prog album. Which is a shame. The music here is very good indeed.

Music wise, I do not subscribe to the notion that the music is entirely Symph Prog. The vocals and most of the instrumentation here sounds like Pendragon to me. That and the added flute and some vintage brooding keyboards which takes them towards RPI territory. You can also add the 1980s soundscape too and you get this band. Symphonic Prog ? Maybe....... Well. The two fifteen minutes plus songs may take them in that direction too.

The quality of the music is good throughout. My main gripe is the lack of some really great songs here. Only the closing track The waiting and the knowledge is hinting about greatness. There are also some sporadic great melody lines inbetween the pretty good stuff here. But the lack of some variations and colours on this album is really hurting the final outcome. Despite of these grapes, this is a good album well worth checking out.
