4 stars A great one-shot Italian Symph band that is a notch below being labeled a Masterpiece. They have a wonderful guitarist in Michele Zarrillo who has a tendency to play it heavy and loud ala Deep Purple, or in their native country, Balleto Di Bronzo. Singing is done well, not soaring ala Banco, or pastel ala PFM, but Zarrillo's voice fits the music well. Keyboards are tasteful, not mimicing ELP, or other English bands, very Italian and baroque. My only gripe is that the drummer at times can't keep up with the frantic pace of the music, especially with Zarrillo's guitar historonics. I guess when your 16 years old and making your first record, you kinda throw caution to the wind and go full speed ahead. Yet, that approach is the albums highlight. It's fast paced, frantic and oh so Italian. Everything I like in prog. A 4- star album that just barely makes it under five. Another can't go wrong one for those crazy Italians!
