5 stars After the excellent debut album "Storia Un Minuto" The PFM has improved even more with their second album, "Per un Amico", which is great! It starts with one of the best songs I've ever heard in my life, "Appena Un Po. "This is music is fantastic, scary since its inception, a potent introduction-the mellltron which gradually reveals a song full of layers: acoustic guitar,flaute, harpsichord, organ, bass, all these instruments play in harmony, contributing to the perfection of music.The next track,"Generale", seemed confused him at first but it grew in me.It is a song quite varied, and only 4 minutes long! .Soon then comes the title track, really great music.In the 3m30s, when a wonderful guitar appears and is aided by a great keyboard. "Il Blanchetto" is the largest and strangest track on the album, it begins in fine form, the guitars, guitar, vocals and keyboards and finally give a great start for music until 4 minutes, but then a strange and experimental music dominates the keyboard, ruining things, fortunately, a piano comes next, before returning to the theme song inicial.The last song, "Genario" is not so bright as the others, but it's really cool.I like for the presence of the violin here, it is possible as the band is influenced by classical music, incorporating it to the good old progressive rock.

(10/10) -Appena Un Po (1000, actually!) -Per Un Amico -Il Blanchetto -Generale -Geranio


5 stars well deserved!
