3 stars I never could quite understand the hype of this album. Many regard it as one of the greatist Italian prog albums ever. But I fail to see why. It's not bad, but I know plenty of Italian albums that excite me much more than this one. Musically, they remind me of a laid-back BANCO, even vocalist Leonardo Sasso reminds me of Francesco di Giacomo. But I'd much rather go for "Darwin"! or "Io Sono Nato Libero" (BANCO) over this one. This album, being released in 1977, gives me a reminder why the prog rock scene was in decline at that time, rather than the potential prog rock had at the time (like some of the German bands like ELOY or EPIDAURUS). At least the music is much better than the bonus cut they included on the CD reissue I have, "New York" (originally released as a single in 1978), which was simply awful, because the band was moving toward conventional pop music, and unfortunately it demonstrated some of the less desirable traits of pop. So, of course, the bonus track is something I skip. To me, there are many other Italian prog albums to try first before you come here.
