3 stars Well talking about its originality this album is not a winner, but if you regard this one as the classical and pastoral album with spare elements of jazz and rock in the course of the seventies. You should have to remain listening to it, above all if you compare it to another successful Italian work of the same period, "Principe di un Giorno", composed by CELESTE. I like to point out that the performance of each member shows a certain virtuosity and a good feel, even though the sound is always soft and not completely fitted into such usual 70's symphonic rock. For this reason the 1st natural comparison has been made with the work by CELESTE... expecially considering their use of classical acoustic instruments such as the flute, the clarinet and also the piano, being always pleasant; while the 2nd band that has been often compared is that one of PFM. They remind me indeed of the acoustic breaks through, in the vein of songs such as "Dolcissima Maria", that is the lightest moments of this "romantic pop" with elements of prog music, " ERRATA CORRIGE-like".
