4 stars The third album from this new generation Rock Progressivo Italiano band.

And Castello Di Atlante is one of the best new generation Rock Progressivo Italiano bands in this scene. Something they prove on this album.

Castello Di Atlante's sound is the typicali vintage sound with superb vocals, violin, flute, guitars and tonnes of vintage keyboards. The music is not hard at all and is bordering to Italian pop music on this album. Bordering, but not stepping over this border. Most of the songs and epics here are intricate symphonic too.

Castello Di Atlante hardly add something new to this scene. What they do on Come il Seguitare Delle Stagioni is to refine their own take on Rock Progressivo Italiano. This album looks inwards to the music from the 1970s, to the rolling hills of Tuscany, the villages in the south and to the Po river delta. This album is much more Italian than the mad rants of Silvio Berlusconi. The listener instantly gets Italy by listening to this album. And I do not understand a word of Italian, btw.

The quality of this album is great and a great reminder why I love Rock Progressivo Italiano. From the opener Sotto il ponte with it's nod to Haydn to the closer Stava scritto with it's nod to PFM. This album is really close to Rock Progressivo Italiano heaven. If they had managed to write and record a couple of killer tracks on this album, this album would had been perfect. But this album is good enough for me. This band is really a band more people should discover. It is a jewel in the Rock Progressivo Italiano scene and up there with the greats from the 1970s.
