5 stars I have always thought that PFM were one of the best progressive bands from the seventies era. I saw them live in Athens, OH in late '74. At the time, they were touring with Robin Trower. They were the reason that I drove 120 miles to see this show. Of course, this was right before Bernardo Lanzetti joined the band, and Chocolate Kings was recorded. So, already being a fan, I was very excited when this record came out. While bring a great album at the time, I actually think it has gotten better with age. This album is a classic example of what made these type of bands so great. The music was complex, emotional, and full of a creativity that is sorely lacking today. I'll admit that Lanzetti's vocals were somewhat of an acquired taste, but I challenge you to find a vocalist who is as easy to recognize and filled with any more emotion than he. I was already familiar with him through Acqua Fragile. This album has been rediscovered by me many times over the years, as with all the PFM albums. I highly recommend Chocolate Kings to anyone wanting to discover what the progressive rock era of the 1970's was all about.
