5 stars Yet another of the many one album wonder bands from the Italian prog scene, in common with many of them Locanda Delle Fate was a victim of bad timing. Whereas earlier one album wonders had suffered from explosive growth of the Italian prog scene swamping the market, Locanda Delle Fate brought their album out after the peak had well and truly passed - and so fell victim to changing fashions.

It's a shame, because Forse Le Lucciole is one of the most achingly beautiful symphonic- influenced prog albums from the RPI scene. Like many bands at the time, Locanda Delle Fate seem to have been attempting to craft a sound which retains a progressive spirit whilst being broadly accessible, and Forse Le Lucciole has so much to love. Not just one but two dedicated keyboard and synth players, with one of the most gorgeous piano sounds to grace a prog album I have ever heard! Not just one but two guitarists, one of whom (Ezio Vevy) also plays a mean flute! And how about Leonardo Sasso on lead vocals, surely one of the most emotive and enchanting vocalists from a prog scene famed for its wonderful singers?

Yes, it's not super way-out-there experimental. But as one of those odd little albums that bridge the classic old styles of prog's golden era with the more accessible approaches taken by the neo-prog generation, it's a true beauty. Perhaps they don't do an enormous amount that's 100% original, but who could possibly care when they do what they do so well?

Warthur | 5/5 |
