3 stars A nice retro- RPI album.

This band got together in the distinctive un-italian metropol London (yes, that's in England) to write and record this album. Hence, the story behind this album is untraditional to say at least. But the end product is a very Italian product.

I don't think I need to list the influences found on this album. Le Orme, Banco, PFM & Biglietto... they are all here. The music is a mix of lyrical, pastoral RPI and bombastic hard rocking RPI. The music is driven by both vintage organs and by guitars. Add bass, drums and some very vintage sounding vocals too and you get my drift. This is Rock Progressivo Italiano as we knows it.

The songs are very good and probably require more time than I have. That means more than ten listening sessions. I have therefore made a note in my diary to pick this album up again in six months time for a re-evaluation. But as it stands now; their sound and approach to this music is far better than the quality of the songs. What is missing here is some really killer tracks. The album ticks over nicely, but nothing more. So three stars would have to suffice now.

3.5 stars
