4 stars One of the more original "one album wonder" bands from the RPI boom - that is to say, the Genesis sound from the Trespass era isn't their primary inspiration - Maxophone shift from dark King Crimson-ish realms to classical/operatic majesty to brief moments of pastoral beauty with an adeptness that is a joy to behold. Forget the two bonus tracks, which are from a rather more commercial and simplistic single the band released the year after putting this one out (I don't include such things in my ratings anyway), this album is a prog symphony from the opening notes of C'Ŕ Un Paese Al Mondo to the majestic choral outro to Antiche Conclusioni Nerge. Those who are exploring the RPI scene should mark Maxophone out as a stop on their prog tour of Italy.
