3 stars Nuova Idea is one of the many bands emerged from italian prog school in eary '70s, with 3 albums under their belt, last one released in 1973 named simply Clows and maybe their best . I needed more then couple of spins to get the whole thing, maybe because the singer is an aquaring taste for me, but in the end I can't say is an annoying voice only diffrent then most of the voices from that period little towards what done Family in manner of singing. Musicaly speaking is ok, a fairly decent album but somehow fail to really grab me, only the opening track Clessidra , wich is a masterpieces , really, a prog rock tune with clearly jazz rock passages and top notch musicianship, awesome. The keyboards and guitar is well performed remind me of New Trolls or even in some parts with Gentle Giant mostly from Three friends era. Also some theatrical moments appear here and there , due to vacal arrangemnts. Even is quite short in length only 35 min, this album I can say is good, but not really very excellent. Nice gate fold cover. 3 stars maybe 3.5 for the opning track.
