5 stars The rules of prog archives tell: five star, a MASTERPIECE! But how many masterpieces can we count in the world of progressive music really? In my opinion, once you have tracked correctly the border of the prog music (how many heavy metal or hard rock works are wrongly considered in this winning label?) not more then 20. So I forget the rules and give five star to this wonderful work, although the work of the italian band can't compete with who open unexplored roads on the prog music in the 60/70's, the real Masterpieces of prog music. Ok Talsete doesn't open new way, at the end of the day he is an archivist, but guys, in what a manner he describe this wonderful world of music! And he does it with the music itself and the minimun necessary of words ... What idea and what a courage in twothousandtwelve! Listening to the Music of Estate, it's impossible not to think about a lot of giants of prog, but, and this is the fifth star, it's also impossible to say "hey men give credits to ELP, Genesis and so on". Everything is done with an italian original spice that join togheter medieval music instruments with the more recent synthetizer, that makes possible to vocalize (in a passage) in a Cocteau Twins mode over a base of a medioeval violin as if it were the most natural thing you could do! The other four stars are due to the wonderful music and the ideas this work contains, a music that like the old good times, you have to discover a little at a time, rejoining on 'her' every time a little more. Hackett, Di Giacomo and Lanzetti (the circle is closed, eventually we got a masterpiece thanks to these giants of Prog), fit perfectly in this tapestry concocted by Estate and open to our mind the archive of the wonderful word of Prog music. In the end it's impossible to forget that the package, the cover and the story perfectly complete this wonderful work. Don't miss it! Bargilla62 2012
