5 stars REALLY: 4,87 (ESSENTIAL!!! The masterpiece of Prog Music!!! ESSENTIAL IN EVERY DISCOGRAPHY!!!)

It knows I give so high vow to this album? Why in the stage Italian Beat I Quelli are the band more Prog! Not only because this is the first unit of PFM (Franz Di Cioccio, Franco Mussida e Giorgio Piazza) and plays too Alberto Radius (Formula 3), but because this is Prog! Is true that the Italian law allowed to translate foreign songs without problems, however the Italian versions of "Rain And Tears" (Aphrodite's Child, translated in "Lacrime E Pioggia"), "Hole In My Shoe" (Traffic, translated in "Tornare Bambino"), "Dizzy" (Tommy Roe, translated in "Dici"), "1-2-3 Red Light" (by 1910 Fruitgum Co., translated in "Hip Hip Hurrą) and (Even The Bad Times Are Good by Tremeloes, translated in "Questa Cittą Senza Te") are nice (pratically, make a will translated to part, is equal at the original!). Hush then is sung in English. That to say some original songs? It is are a lot of Prog (are lacking however the keyboards) and calmly we can affirm that this is the first album of Italian Prog (Proto-Prog, of course). I Quelli, before they changed name in Krel (ore 7"), then, always for contract problem with changed label, in PFM. Whose all story we know.
