4 stars Sometimes you'll find some progressive music that realy is different. This is the case with Il Paese dei Balocchi. This music is a nice combination of classical music and rock. It's bombastic, dynamic and shows some territory within prog that was not heard before. On this record there are many long silent passages, which makes this record to be listened only when you've got the time to listen to it carefully. The silent -sometimes mysterious, sometimes mourning- passages makes the bombastic parts explode in to your rome leaving you thrilled on your sofa. There is a lot of emotion in this music. The combination of classical music and rock was never used before in this way; the dynamic, bombastic and emotional way. An emotion caused by instruments.

Many parts of this record are realy beautifull. The reason I don't give this the masterpiece rating is because there are some mediocre passages during the middle of side one and two. The beginning and the end are great however and this record will always light me up.
