1 stars "How many times I've dreamt to change, to wake up in the morning and not to recognize myself, loose the sense of time and space..."

Curously the big change was near for Le Orme, being Orme the last studio album with the keyboards of Toni Pagliuca. The end of an era. A little river of sadness flows through all the tracks, nothing's prog in it, though. The sound is now declined to a soft and melodic pop music. Only the well known gentle and warm vocals of Aldo Tagliapietra remains...

I was interested in listening to Orme because of the guest appearence on violin by Angelo Branduardi in "25 Maggio del 1931"...what a disappointment, though! A reggae- influenced song...not exactly what I was expecting! Violin cannot give the track a more "higher feel"...

By the way, there's a song I like to listen to: the good "Diventare" ("To Become") some lyrics of which I've translated at the beginning of this review. Nice piano and words, mellow feminine choruses, sweet atmosphere...

Nothing more, yet. An album good only for completionists!
