5 stars This is one of the best Italian-prog bands, though it has been forgotten too soon, like many other bands of that period. Their second album, less rock compared to the first one, is absolutely outstanding and, in my opinion, it sounds musically less Italian! Sometimes you can hear reminiscences of King Crimson and Gentle Giant, sometimes it sounds jazzy. In the whole, all the tracks of this album surprise because of their variety and completeness! The great opener "Villa Doria Pamphili" is evidently inspired by the performance of the band in one of the most important pop-festivals in Rome (in Villa Doria Pamphili Park). The title track is wonderful, true "prog-pearl" of the album, with amazing games between keyboards and violin and well performed by vocals and choirs. "Un giorno amico" is another example of the greatness of this band, of their way to play prog, while E' accaduto una notte" is more experimental with echoes of jazz, evidently in the DNA of these amazing musicians! Although different from their first album I love this one as much as the previous work and I give it 5 stars !!!
