3 stars My second prog record from Italy. My first was Photos of Ghosts by PFM but my first all-italian record. I bought it because Prog Archives is stating the record as a suggestion, and frankly, I've never been decieved by those. I've never been a fan of Italy's music. Are you a fan of italian love songs? Yes? Maybe not? You know how soapy (and unreal) they can be. You know, talking about how fierce the desire in their hearts burns (mostly about a married woman they saw 2 seconds in a bus). That is the climax of annoyment for me. So, when I hear a guy singing like Zucchero in a prog record...Man that po'ed me real hard. I almost threw the record away. I deeply don't appreciate Zucchero's type of vocals; read 'seduction singers'.

This is where it gets positive, don't hang up yet!

This record is MUSICALLY a superb, entertaining and soothing exercise. The most progressive track is Vendesi Saggezza. A challenging track with lots of catchy passages where you smile of satisfaction as hearing the shrewdness of the time changes and the Genesis winks here and there. We clearly identify flavors of early Genesis in 12 strings and Hackett type of playing. We also get a taste of Jethro Tull's flute. But it fits perfectly. The record is really rewarding after many carefulled listens. I really cannot say anything bad exept for the frequent deep fryer emotions. Probably won't bother you as much as I. I just can't stand too much emotion in a voice when it comes to prog. Prog is so often cold and mathematical. In general, the singing vibrates with feelings and the music is a total relaxing experience. But LDF knows how to rock and they show it in almost every song by making short interludes of fast and complex time changes.

A very interesting and thick record that will keep you finding new stuff at every listening...if you don't mind that marshmallow singing. And I apologize to Zucchero for comments on his work, it's not THAT bad. But you do realize that you sing 55-year-old-dreaming-secretary-impossible-love-affairs stuff while sporting a feathered hat and dressing up like Backstreet Boys' beloved A.J.?
