3 stars Another fine album from Italy.

For some reason I do not get, this band is listed as prog folk. Their music is Rock Progressivo Italiano through and through though. I feel the Rock Progressivo Italiano fans is missing out on a fine band here. Just some early morning grumbles from an office rat......

Faveravola is playing vintage Rock Progressivo Italiano. No wonder, this album is the product from some fine 1970s Rock Progressivo Italiano musicians. Castello Di Atlanto is a good reference point. But you can also add PFM to the mix. The difference is that Faveravola's music is far more folk and pastoral orientated than the more hard rock bands in the scene.

The flutes and the keyboards is pretty dominant here together with the lovely vocals. There are no real killer tracks here and that is my real gripe with this album. It is by all means a very good album, but it lacks the dot over the i to make it a truly great album. But this is still a recommended album and I hope to hear more from this band.
