4 stars I just brought this album today and i must say i nothing more than astonishing :) First of all the cover is one of the most beatiful cover i've seen in all the cover from the prog area of the '70. The album starts off with «Peccato d'orgoglio» over 12min of pure prog with lots of differents rhythms and dynamic changes. It begins with nice acoustic guitar and good vocal section then, the rhythms chage so are the instruments, lots of organ sound and agressive rhythmic guitar it goes on bulding up until the final. The socond song «Dopo l'uragano» has Black Sabbath guitar feels, it starts soft but then goes hard rock and change to funky prog rhythm, very good. The 3rd one «Croma» is still on top of thing with a beautiful lyric ending. Than on 4th «La mente vola» has a lot of clavinet with a jazz feel over it, since i like jazz a lot, really like this song. The last one «Ombra muta» is very agressive with good hammond and moog solos. So, if you like your prog to be more adventurous than the more mainstream band and if you like italian symphonic prog, this is an album for you and trust me you won't regret your purchase.
