3 stars Even if not my personal Perigeo favorite, Genealogia is a very fine album with Perigeo's typical delicate melodies and lightly sad atmosphere. The main source of inspiration is still Weather Report with an occasional flash of Mahavishnu frenzy, and everything is played with a tender flair that can only be Italian.

As usual on Perigeo's albums, the compositions are well played and memorable but unfortunately, the vocals, which were one of the main elements I enjoyed on their first two albums, are not here anymore. Giovanni Tommaso is still credited for vocal duties and indeed Torre Del Lago and the last few seconds of Sydney's Call have a few bars of oohs and ahs, but that's no sufficient use of such a unique characteristic of their sound. It makes the music loose some of its edge and personality.

I also find the album to be a bit safe, it performs some of their earlier ideas quite well but doesn't offer many new insights. Not a show stopper of course but still, it's always appreciated if an artist keeps developing new ideas along the way.

Genealogia has 9 graceful songs that are all performed very tastefully, with excellent interplay between the members and with a lot of diversity in-between the songs. A bit too safe maybe. A big 3.5 but somewhat below the first two albums.
