The 2nd album by this Italian group is regarded their peak moment by many. I really can't agree or disagree because all other three albums by this group are pretty much as good in my opinion. This album is most similar to their 3rd album Io e il Tempo. The concept in these two albums is the same: both include two sidelong tracks. If compared to the debut album L'Ultimo Viaggio I notice some increase in maturity and ambitiousness in the compositions but other than that it is quite similar. There is great keyboard and guitar work throughout the album. The main reason that prevents this to be an essential album is that the music could be a little more varied. This applies to all their albums. However, the musicianship is very good and the vocals are also expressive. At least with this album Nuova Era proved to be a forerunner in the new coming of Italian prog. It is also worth to notice that one of the band members, Ivan Pini, is just a lyricist and the lyrics are supposed to be really good (I do not understand Italian language but that's what I have been told).

The title track is perhaps a little stronger than the other track "Pianeta Trasparente" and could be the group's strongest composition in their career with the track "Domani io Vecchio" from the Io e il Tempo album. This album is not quite essential but excellent in its entirety nonetheless. So, four and a half stars it is.

Conclusion: Excellent!
