3 stars In 1996 Il Balletto Di Bronzo performed on a progressive rock festival in Rome, only singer/keyboardist Gianni Leone was from the original line-up. If you compare the music on this CD (running time 70 minutes) with the music from their acclaimed album "Ys" from 1972 the vintage keyboard sound has disappeared and is in fact very modern. The 11 compositions sound pleasant featuring some spectacular work (with hints from Keith Emerson) but they don't evoke the intricate atmosphere from the early Seventies. The song "Technoage" has even a house climate delivering a tight and propulsive beat (along flashy synth runs)! This is a decent keyboard-oriented progrock CD but if you are longing for more like "Ys", it will turn out in a disappointment.
