Prog Reviewer
4 stars "Il Sogno" is a low-rated album in several reviews, but I disagree. There aren't hiper-elaborated structures here, but music flows so sweet and so soft, and melodies are so beautiful, that I must rate it as well as I enjoy it. Lots of acoustic moments and very nice interplay between flute, xylophone, guitar and keyboards invites the listener to relax. Essentially instrumental, and almost never "hard", the few female singer intervention shows a weak point: Liliana Bodini's voice isn't great, but this topic isn't a real problem.

ZAUBER sounds (at least in this stuff, the only I've heard) like the most melodic PFM and remember me the CELESTE's delicated style (without Mellotron), but I dare to say that compositions are even more beautiful, although they are far to be so complex. "Il Sogno" was made in 1978, when prog music glory period was finishing in Italy, and this fact makes the album more valuable to me. All tracks are really enjoyable, and conform an excellent option for lovers of the melodic side of progressive music.
