2 stars I bought this one fooled by its name and by several praising e-mails I read on the ProgBrasil forum, that I pehaps should have read more carefully about the groupīs style of music. I thought they would the average italian symphonic prog (and the acoustic introduction was quite misleading), but they are clearly not. Itīs definitly Canterbury sound, with all that jazzy stuff, plus some avant guard leanings and "humor" elements, which are not my cup of tea. However, being italian, they still have some nice melodic passages here and there (Sepia is a good example). The production is far from perfect, but I guess it was adequate for that time.

Obviously the musicians are skillful and inventive, but again this is not the kind of music that moves me. I still think Italy did much more better with their "proper" classical influenced progressive scene. But if you like Canterbury bands, I strongely recommend you listen to this group. After all, all that praising by so many reviewers here prove that fans of Canterbury sound may find an interesting and different gem with Picchio Dal Pozzo. But only them. For followers of italian prog in general my advice is listen before buying this one.

Final rating: 2,5 stars. Good, but for fans only.
