3 stars A worthy follow up after Oxian, their third release named La strega issued in 1999 at Mellow records. Previous album was released on Si Music and after the label went into the mist in mid '90, the band optained for the well known italian label Mellow records..La strega is to me little better then Oxian, here the band has more polished sound, more intresting ideas, and overall is much pleasent and anjoyble. The music is same symphonic prog with electronic keyboards, female vocals and all ingredients to be a good album in this field. The album is very shor , only 37 min, but has some fine pieces like La Mutazione, a 10 min beauty ful of great arrangements and perfect playing. As previous album Oxian , Barrock offers a bombastic symphonic prog with lots of instrumental parts and keybord driven moments. So, decent towards great in places. Is sad that this band gone unnoticed big time, I can count on one hand persons who know about Barrock. 3 stars rounded to 3.5.
