Prog Reviewer
3 stars A charming but not exceptional "one album wonder" from the Italian prog boom of 1972-1973, L'Uovo di Colombo play a style of prog reminiscent of Collage-era Le Orme with a bit more Keith Emerson worship. Beginning with a wild organ-dominated track and concluding with a pastoral instrumental featuring piano accompanied by gentle flute, the album takes in a fair range of prog styles but ultimately doesn't quite produce anything especially original out of the mix, and whilst it's competently performed, it never quite manages to catch fire. On the whole, it's one of those obscure albums whose scarcity has amplified the hype surrounding it. Worthwhile if you absolutely love Italian prog from the boom years and simply can't get enough of it, but if you're just beginning to explore the genre there's plenty of better examples out there.
