4 stars Time goes on, but not for everybody. Davide "Jimmy" Spitaleri, the METAMORFOSI's singer and one of the best voices (perhaps the best) in the Italian prog is at the top after 32 years!

Basically, "Paradiso" is a sort of second part from "Inferno", one of the great masterpieces in the seventies. Of course, sound is modern but not plastic at all and the album, even when is magnificent, isn't top notch stuff. Nevertheless, there are lots of beautiful melodies and really inspired moments.

Structure between "Inferno" and "Paradise" is similar: several themes (14 in this case) that can be listened like just one. Main instruments are piano and synths, with nice classic guitar and drums participation, but the cherry in the dish is -no doubts- the sensibility and expression ways from Spitaleri's singing.

"Paradiso" isn't a masterpiece as "Inferno", but -I'm sure- it will remain through the years as an excellent album and one of the best in 2004.
