Turillazzo
4 stars The debut album by PFM already shows their amazing musicianship, though it doesn't have the very complex orchestration that you can hear on PER UN AMICO. The result is outstanding anyway.

The album starts with a 1 min. introduction that leads to Impressioni di Settembre, perhaps their most popular song. It isn't very much progressive because it has too much "Italian singer-songwriter" feeling, but it's nice. Then we have " festa", a very good song, with a strong RPI feeling and overdriven guitars. The next track, "Dove...Quando..." is split in two parts between the two sides; the first one is nothing more than an acoustic ballad (not boring though) and the second one is really wonderful. It starts with the main theme of the song, played by an organ, then goes into beautiful instrumental passages in the real PFM vein. La Carrozza di Hans is something similar, but with a vocal part as well, and I like it even more. In the end, Grazie Davvero is a nice track, but there is nothing remarkable here.

What we get is an album that never sounds boring and with some awesome instrumental passages. It's a good way to start with RPI, but the musicianship gets even better in the next album, so after listening to this go on.
