4 stars There are too many of these. Amazing one shot Italian albums. Why the hate? Female vocals. It's the only thought I can come up with for the words weak, copy-cats, and uninspired comments. I wish others would listen without prejudice and stop leaning towards the Prog Rock or RPI giants for comparison and a benchmark... or as some odd graduated cylinder. It also helps to mention the "He-man's Woman Hates Club" that exist in so many rock circles. No one can let a band stand as it's own... but Triumvirat and Starcastle? Great bands, but you can slam them all you want.

Perfectly cohesive, serene, engaging and angelic in parts with some great intensity and heavy bits most polentone bands (this band is from Calabria... the foot part) can't dish. After a thoughtful run through today, I felt the album was one song. Seamless. It's sure to please some who can tolerate a female lead. Much varied instrumentation and technical prowess with the keyboards (he was 14 years old at the time), killer drumming, strong vocals from Silvana and some nice flute in a few spots... which is all too fleeting. They did a great job creating music for others. "Prima Realta" in itself is like a huge wave. A surge of well crafted power.

With bands like this I wish more could have been produced to see where else they could have gone. After reading some interviews on those who have recorded and played in Italy during the 70's it's no wonder most bands couldn't continue. Damn fascists companies and venue owners!

I have read a considerable rude unfounded review. All I can say is give it some more time, you'll like it.

Thanks Apoteosi! 4 Godlike stars.
