5 stars 33 years have passed since the release of this album: but it is still now absolutely actual... And, if you go to their live show (this summer is forecasted in the Americas), you will listen to a great part of it. As underlined by somebody, this PFM first album is perhaps their best, even though PFM kept their style (together with their lineup DiCioccio-Mussida-Premoli, soon joined - in 1974 - by P.Dijvas coming from Area) for all their career, up to now (the only difference is the fact that now not always - and rarely in today live shows, in that case you'll be lucky... - is present the violin, that saw two great performers such as Pagani first and Fabbri then). This album is very clean, full of players outstanding performance, and show a fantastic merge of themes and instruments, plus the typical italian athmosphere. All of the pieces are in fact masterpieces, with a great amount of innovation, meaning that it is "new" even today! "La carrozza di Hans" is (perhaps?) the most various piece, sweet and strong, soft and loud, suspended and never-ending (something similar to "E' festa"), with the violin (solos) at its apex, and the instruments running after each other in a simply unique way. "E' festa" is quite an opera piece, combined with the strenght of rock, while the organ movements of "Impressioni di settembre" are PFM trademark. Better to listen to it, instead of writing what words can't express.
