3 stars This Italian band is a duo who play a keyboard driven brand of music. Angelo plays a variety of keyboards and sings while Gabriele plays guitar and bass. He also did the programmed drums on here.

"Ritratto Di Ballerina" has some powerful organ early on then it settles in with the piano and drums standing out. More organ 2 1/2 minutes in then we get vocals for the first time after 3 minutes. A calm with piano before 5 minutes then it picks back up with synths leading the way. Vocals a minute later. Piano and drums lead again then the vocals return.

"Reazioni A Catena" opens with some atmosphere as spoken words come in. A change after 1 1/2 minutes as the piano and drums lead. The synths and organ then trade off. A dark calm follows then it picks back up after 5 minutes. It settles with piano then picks back up with organ as the tempo and mood continue to change. Piano ends it. "Impulsi Emotivi" starts out with spoken words then the piano takes over. Spoken words end it. "Epilogo / Emozion" sounds good once it kicks into gear. Church organ follows. This is pretty catchy 2 minutes in. Vocals and piano before 3 minutes. Silence for a minute then acoustic guitar and vocals take over. Strings too. Not a fan of this section.

A good album that fans of keyboards should appreciate.
