From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars The one and only album from this Italian folk rock band.

Although listed as folk rock, the music is also borderline Rock Progressivo Italiano too. Fans of Rock Progressivo Italiano, check out this album.

The vocals are in Italian, the music is good RPI throughout and there is plenty of Jethro Tull like flutes here. There are also a lot of spaced out melodies here as in Krautrock. And yes, the basis is folk rock. Hence the correct classification.

The vocals are both male and female. The instrumentation is flute, guitars, bass, drums, accordion, keyboards and woodwinds. This creates a lush sound with some throughout lush songs. This is not a minimalistic accoustic folk rock album by any stretch of the imagination.

Both the vocalists and the musicians does a very good job. The bass is too much in the front of the mix and that is my only problem here.

The songs are good throughout. The album suffers from the not-any-great-songs syndrome though. A very nasty illness in my world. This is another good debut album and I hope they will one day return with a follow up.

3 stars
