5 stars Their first album, if you dont know, Goblin is an Italian band which has made a lot of albums from movies, "soundtracks", this is one of them.

Im not going to lie, i have never seen that movie, but i found this album out, and well these are my thoughts.

Maybe this could be an EP of another band, because the lenght is short, but i will start saying, that this is one of my favorite short albums ( 30 minutes or less), thats enough for make great and beautiful music. Until now, this album has 4 entries, 3 gave it 5 stars and one more 2 stars, but no review that i can read. This album is a beautiful symphonic album, great sound and good arrangements in every song, is one of that albums whch during each song, it is envolving us.One important thing, this is an instrumental album.

The first song is called Profondo Rosso, plenty of organ and keyboards, one of that pieces which make the original sound of the band. Death Dies, i dont know, sounds a bit like some Focus passages, some jazzy sounds, great drums, and bass making the rythm, weel the bass is pretty good i think and it finishes with a softly heartbeat. Mad Puppet is the largest song of the album, it stars with some atmospherical sounds, like wind chimes with some drums everywhere, then a pause, and then, something very special, guitar and bass lines, but every time i listen to this, my mind thinks in Mike Oldfield, from 1: 40 to the end, we can hear something very similar to Mike Oldfield`s last part of Tubullar Bells Pt. 1, its good. Wild Session is another great movie song, the wind is always there, and quietly, some piano notes, beatufil, and suddenly the song is progressing, drums, bass , keys ,guitars and also a good Sax gather together to make a beautiful song, i think its my favorite of this album. Deep Shadows is another great song, good bass lines and some guitars which sound a bit like a western song. School at Night, a clear example of what a movie song is. And the last one is Gianna, the shortest of them all, an excellent finish for an excellent album!

So well, iim not sure if this could be amasterpiece, but i really love it, and im doubting about the stars b ecause maybe this is too short to be a 5 star album, but it is definitely a masterpiece! Enjoy it!
