2 stars The NEW TROLLS are back together for this 1976 release, a sequel to the very successful 1971 release "Concerto Grosso Per 1 New Trolls". This is really a mixed bag, that really does not even come close to the 1971 album.The similarities are the orchestral strings, violin and guitar, but these all pale in comparison to the 1971 release. And not only that, there are some real pop sounding songs like "Bella Come Mai" and "Let It Be Me".

I laughed when i read "proghead's" review of the song "Vent'anni" because i too felt that they sounded like the Italian version of CROSBY STILLS NASH AND YOUNG.The final song was almost a relief as it is more uptempo with QUEEN-like vocal harmonies. "Quiet Seas" is a pretty good song that reminded me of CAMEL when the instrumental music came in after the vocals.

This album does have it's moments, but there are several other records that they have put out that i would recommend over this one.
