3 stars Although I don't think Biglietto Per L'Inferno sound very much like Jethro Tull, I can see why the comparison gets made. First off, there's the inclusion of flute, which seems to guarantee that any rock band will earn Jethro Tull comparisons! Secondly, there's the guitar playing of Marco Mainetti, which occasionally shatter a gentle moment the album has established with loud and aggressive playing that remind me a bit of Martin Barre's heavier moments. But by and large, this is simply one more Italian band who drink deeply from the well of Trespass-era Genesis and produce a competent and intriguing album in that pastoral style. Definitely worth a listen, and easily the better album from the band.

The abortive followup is intriguing, but ultimately it's quite clear that it's an unfinished product - though for that matter, this debut is a little rough around the edges itself, with occasionally shaky production. It is a slight shame that the band didn't have the chance to really hone their sound in the 1970s and bring out a definitive statement of their sound, which this doesn't quite manage to be.
