Prog Reviewer
5 stars A definitive step into prog territory, following the psych-prog dabblings of Collage, sees Le Orme taking a Keith Emerson-inspired approach to the synthesiser and applying it to pastoral, early Genesis inspired prog with some beautiful acoustic guitar passages. The influence of Van der Graaf Generator can also be heard in the chaotic, apocalyptic conclusion to the album's final track, Alienazone, suggesting that the band members must have paid close attention to the famed 1971 Charisma tour of Italy - a tour which, considering the widespread adoption of Trespass/Nursery Cryme-era Genesis's pastoral approach to prog in the RPI scene, must surely count as one of the most important in prog history. The unique fusion of influences, coupled with Algo's almost operatic vocals, results in a novel blend which is sure to reward repeated listens. This, right here, is Le Orme's first true masterpiece.
Warthur | 5/5 |
