4 stars Mo.Do is almost a forgotten progressive rock band from Italy who had a shor career but manage to release a single album in 1980 named La scimmia sulla schiena del re. As the liner notes of the CD said the band was formed in 1978 by the drumer Walter Locatelli of another italian outfit from this field named Dalton.and played and prformed six years until thier break in fall of 1984. The Cd was re issued by already famous Mellow records in 1993. The music is very well composed a cross between PFM and Gentle Giant with that specific italian atmosphere. I was very pleasent surprised, all pieces stands as good, some of them even great. The album is shor nearly 35 min only, but better this way, shor and good then long and boring. Another plus is that almost all album is instrumental, only 2 pieces from 8 are with voice. The tracks are short around 4-5 min each with exception last piece, but they incorporated very well the progressive elements here, very good musicianship, intristing arrangements, keeping in mind that the album was released in 1980, when prog music was no more a fashion. I like the album a lot, for sure not a masterpiece but a very good and enjoyble release. 4 stars for me.
