4 stars Italian prog rock is one of the most controversial regional musical school. Starting from late 60- s, it gives us some best (as Area) and some worst (endless neo-classical well polished mellow bands with almost operatic male vocals,etc) . To be honest, during last decades there weren't too many really great new bands,coming from Italy, but these few who was came, are really great!

From very first this album's sounds I understood it is not just another sweet-voices pop-prog band (plenty of them are all around in modern Italian market). Combination of contemporary avant, jazz, great female operatic voices,traditional songs from 50-s, excellent instrumentation, complex composition and very Italian passion! Such music is recorded there!

Band's great talent is to mix really complex and even controversial structures and sounds into one composition,which sounds as excellent attractive final product!Besides of really nervous,dissonant pieces and common tension, this album contains plenty moments of simply beautiful music!

Experimental, very professional and unusual, this album is one between few really interesting avant-prog releases coming this year.Not an easy listening though.

My rating is 4+!
