5 stars ---- 5 stars really.

Fonderia is a great emerging band from Italy, and this is their first album: it's almost an instrumental album, apart from track 08, "Dante, at last", which is a nice song starting with the first lines of Dante's Inferno, narrated by a funny and enigmatic voice of a woman, mixed with anatmospheric instrument, probably a theremin. Yes, because on this album you can find remembrances of the 70's, minimoog, mellotron, horn, hammond, and influences from ambient, electronic, canterbury and mainly jazz music. This band creates mixtures of wonderful musical landscapes and more rock-oriented songs. No outstanding tracks here, the whole disc is a gem, great guitar, great bass, great horn, the musicians work perfectly together, and sometimes they remind me of Crimson "Red" era. Excellent work, Fonderia.
