4 stars Wistful symphonic progressive rock dazzles at every turn on Locanda delle Fate's 1977 album Forse le Lucciole Non Si Amano Pił. While the piano is the primary instrument, there are plenty of other sounds crafting various textures that give the band a consistent sound throughout the album. I am not sure how any lover of Genesis or Kansas would find this Italian gem unenticing.

"A Volte un Istante di Quiete" A dazzling piano introduces symphonic sumptuousness that is similar in style to Kansas. It steadily differs in style by becoming awash in synthesizer and easing into a steady rhythm before driving back into wondrously convoluted progressive rock.

"Forse le Lucciole Non Si Amano Pił" Touching piano paves the way for pensive singing. The slightly heavier instrumental section features swelled guitar and synthesizer leads before the bass dances with the nimble piano. The band offers frantic clavinet and electric guitar passages, again in the vein of Kansas. Svelte flute contrasts with the boisterous vocals. This extended song concludes satisfactorily.

"Profumo di Colla Bianca" Whistling synthesizer and chunky bass work around light electric guitar in a pleasing progression. The stately vocals appear over a distant organ and dreamy piano. Whimsical sounds plop in the middle of the piece before the swirling organ ushers in the main theme. I especially appreciate the drumming on this majestic opus.

"Cercando un Nuovo Confine" Silky guitars provide a lovely backdrop to a sweet song. Solid drums and bass provide the backbone, while piano and flute flesh out the sound.

"Sogno di Estunno" This briefer piece alternates between forceful rock music to meditative, tranquil passages. For under five minutes, this song travels all over the place without wandering.

"Non Chiudere a Chiave le Stelle" Much like early Genesis, this song is pastoral folk music with layers of guitars and peaceful singing.

"Vendesi Saggezza" Gruff vocals grate through gentle piano flourishes. The album's third and final extended piece visits all the elements that have appeared throughout this fairylike journey.

"New York" This English-titled bonus track is an initially pacific tune that soon becomes like an anthem.

Epignosis | 4/5 |
