3 stars I wouldn't be surprised if these guys were influenced by OSANNA, they even use the flute as the lead instrument like OSANNA did on the "Palepoli" record. Five of the nine tracks are instrumentals.Vocals are sung in Italian except for one track (English).

"Il Camaleonte" is an energetic instrumental with prominant bass. "King Of Fools" is the only song with English vocals and he sounds so much like Roine Stolt ! This song contrasts the mellow sections with outbursts of instrumental work with vocals. Check out the guitar 2 1/2 minutes in ! They stop and start on a dime which i'm not really a fan of. "Illusione Prospettica" is another instrumental. It opens with piano before synths come in and some crazy sounds. Not a fan of this one. "Castelli Di Rabbia" opens with outbursts of sound contrasted with flute until we get a steady soundscape with prominant guitar, organ and bass. Italian vocals after 1 1/2 minutes as it settles. Good song.

"Delusione Ottica" is an energetic instrumental led by flute much of the time. "Audiopoker" is an interesting instrumental with those Pac Man-like sounds. Some angular guitar late. A nice change from the rest of the album. "Re Nudo" opens with guitar, bass and keys as drums pound. Great intro ! Lots of piano before vocals come in. Check out the bass ! "Elusione Ottica" features acoustic guitar melodies throughout. Nice. "Mare Nostrum" is different with those deep spacey sounds to open. Flute comes in and leads the way as drums and bass throb. Vocals follow. Some killer guitar follows.This might be the best track on here.

Overall a pretty good album.
