4 stars The most underrated of the band's three albums. Sure, this was made after a long hiatus, and the only original member left is the drummer. But musically this is quite sweet.

A stronger guitar presence, largely acoustic, gives this more of a PFM feel. Actually, more of an Il Volo feel, as they have the same string-synth oriented keyboard sound. The acoustic guitars on "Menestrello" and the title track add an endearing folksiness that was somewhat lacking in their other two albums.

The highlight of this album is definitely the 23-minute "Pavana" suite, which is brimming over with a variety of different moods and shadings. The low point is easily "Opera 21", a too-kitschy take on a theme from Beethoven's 1st symphony.

So, better than you've been led to believe. I prefer it over the rather over-rated PAPILLON, frankly, although I like it slightly less than PASSIO SECUNDUM MATTHEUM. In any case, this is a worthy album that a lot of Italian sympho fans could definitely enjoy.

Progbear | 4/5 |
