5 stars I am a relative newbie to Italian prog, but it took very little time to work its way into my heart. In a few months, I have collected quite a few albums.

My initial experience with Le Orme left me a bit indifferent to them. That changed when I heard "Uomo di Pezza."

The grandeur of the opening organs in "Una Dolcezza Nuova" grabbed me right away, and then it effortlessly morphs into something much more delicate.

I challenge anyone not to be taken in my the beautiful, gentle folk of "Gioco di Bimba."

"La Porta Chiusa" is a powerful piece of orchestration, on par with many of the classical masters.

The near freak out of "Alianazione" could make you wonder if it was falling apart at the end. There is nothing to fear, this is all part of the plan.

The other sections are not lacking any quality, but I like to point out the highlights.

The amazing part is that I can only understand a few words. However, I don't mind at all (Imagine how much more I would like it if I could understand it). This is great stuff. Any prog fan should do their best to find a copy of this album. It is a true prog masterpiece.
