4 stars The Italian band GRANTORINO, in this first albun "Grantorinoprog", presents a progressive rock something different of the most of Italian Prog bands. Their sound is a very personal and a creative mix of heavy/symphonic styles and in like manner is not much easy to identify what bands have an influence in their sonority. Although, such influences seems coming from bands like KANSAS ( in the more heavy moments, like in the overture of track 5 "Miridiana"), FOCUS (in certain keyboards and guitar passages), GENTLE GIANT ( listen the hammond organ melody in the track 5 "Miridiana" that remenber cleary "Freehand" from GG). Another particularity is the use of "Talk-Box' in the track 3 "Rock Waters", a guitar effect unusual in progressive rock. My rate is 4 stars !!!
