3 stars Classic symphonic prog from Italy! A musical fusion between structured melodic "romantic" songs and long keyboards "baroque" improvisations. The result is an energic sound with lot of grooves. A distinctive note from PFM, Banco and other basic symphonic bands are the weird, sometimes "avant garde" harmonies used in many tunes. "Introduzione" starts as a mellow, peaceful "classical" ballad then comes a furious driving rock section. "Primo incontro" has a discreet hard rock feel with strange voices, heavy guitar solos and piano arrangements, a rather dark, mysterious tune. The boring elements come from this unbearable voice in Italian. I'm on my rest with these vocal melodies. The other inconvenient is the grotesque "symphonic" sound; I mean the imitation of classical rapid scales keyboards parts which sounds a bit laughable today. As for the most part of the Italian "symphonic" rock scene, this album didn't pass the test of time.
