4 stars This live CD is a registration from the concert at the annual Nearfest festival in the USA (this year with Le Orme and PFM!) in June 17th, 2000. From the very first moment DFA manage to impress me: the music is build upon varied keyboards (electronic, Hammond, Fender Rhodes, several synthesizer sounds) and fiery electric guitar with lots of captivating interplay, strong soli and a tight and powerful rhythm-section. Every song has its dynamic and variety: an Ozric Tentacles climate (but less exotic) with a swinging synth solo in "Escher", splendid keyboards in the jazzy-inspired : "Caleidoscopio", some Gentle Giant echoes with moving electric guitar and flashy synths in "Trip on the metro", strong jazzrock in the long and very alternating "La via" (15 minutes), great soli and organ/guitar interplay, compelling build-up parts and again splendid keyboards in "Pantera" and tasteful jazzrock in the swinging "Ragno". This review sounds a bit euphoric but in my opinion this is one of the best new Italian progrock releases. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, ESPECIALLY IF YOU LIKE JAZZROCK!!
