3 stars A fine debut and a free download too.

Well, that free download is available perhaps not too long. This band with the very long name is bound to be picked up by a label and the freebies will be a distant memory. So get it for free while you can.

Una Volta Eravamo In Sette (phew !) is an Italian band doing old style RPI. References is the usual suspects standing on an identity parade. Banco, Le Orme....... Una Volta Eravamo In Sette is perhaps a bit heavier and creates more noise than some of the RPI bands like for example PFM and the more pop orientated bands. Una Volta Eravamo In Sette is a rock band through and through with some Led Zeppelin vibes. Their sound dishes up with guitars, vintage tangents, a lot of flutes, drums, bass and some really good vocals.

The songs are really varied in their expressions and this album is a pretty big mouthful. It is obvious that Una Volta Eravamo In Sette is a very talented band which I have already put high up on my "must follow" list. The songs on this album is unusual complex and filled with small intricate details. So much so that ten listening sessions does not feel enough.

The quality of the album is very good. My only gripe is the lack of any really great tracks. Tracks that would give the band some identity. But this album is good enough to a must-download album and one I am sure will be picked up by a record label and re-released. For me, it is a very strong three stars album, bordering to four stars. It may also feature high on the best RPI albums of this year list. Download it !
