2 stars "La Norma del Cielo" is subtitled "Volo Magico n. 2" for its similarities with the previous Rocchi's masterwork (originally thought and conceived as a double album).

Basically it was put together by the label company within outtakes from those session, without the approval of the author (while he was in India). The only exceptions are "Lascia Gesų", "L'arancia č un Frutto d'Acqua" and the title track, written after "Volo Magico n. 1".

It has to be said that "n. 2" is not at that very same level of "n. 1"; it is weaker 'cause there is no rock crescendo. It is instead a collection of warm and delicate hippie songs (with indian atmospheres and wonderful lyrics based on eastern philosophy). Acoustic guitars, grand piano, some mellotron and hammond organ. Flute by Mauro Pagani (PFM), violin, percussions, feminine choruses and even sitar in the last track.

I think the strong point of the album are melodies and deep lyrics.
