5 stars The structure of "Palepoli" is very similar to albums like "A Passion Play" and "Thick As A Brick" from JETHRO TULL. Each side of the album contains 20-minutes of an album-length epic. However, the music, rather than being JETHRO TULL-like, is influenced by early KING CRIMSON (jazzy sax-driven parts), and the Italian prog-rock of the time. So, the music alternates between heavy guitar/sax-led sections, and softer flute/mellotron interludes. Ideas come and go rather quickly, and most sections last no more than 2-minutes or so. It also appears that OSANNA basically connected shorter songs to build a larger epic. I really like the vocalist (who sings in Italian). His voice is almost like a warmer version of Klaus Meine from The SCORPIONS. "Palepoli" is a very unique album that has never been duplicated.
