4 stars Palepoli" by Osanna is of these "deranged", outrageous little masterworks which prevail the 70's typical prog rock genre. Osanna belongs to the first generation of Italian prog bands and highly represents what the symph prog scene has the best to offer. This album is made of furious musical pieces that combine heavy guitar sections, brilliant breaks mixed with intense sax solos (in the vein of Van Der Graaf Generator and King Crimson), folk flute lines, neo classical acoustic guitar touches and well tried sound experimentations. Each track develops a very special atmosphere, alternating "hilarious", "dynamic", "mysterious", "introspective" and "pastoral" moods. The only thing we can regret is the lack of originality and the fact that influences are really obvious. However it is formidably executed.
