1 stars This is yet another weak album from this "legendary" band. Somewhat in the vein of "Aldebaran" if you see what I mean.

OK, it might not be as bad, since the overall disco mood doesn't prevail here. But look and find one decent song is quite a job, believe me. Below average Italian pop-rock music (at best) like "Dieci Orologi" or "Un Peccato Luminoso".

I am not a great fan of this band. I only was enthusiast about their "Ut" album and to some extent about their "Concerto" ones. It is of course not with such albums that they will capture more of my attention.

If you fancy mellowish Italian ballads from which prog is totally alien, you might be charmed by "Io Sconsolato in Riva al Mare" or " Accendere L'Anima", but it is not my case at all. Overloaded with orchestration for the former and passionless for the latter which sounds more as a Bee Gees stuff than as a prog rock tune. Skip it if you can.

But there are lots of songs to skip. So many that this album is actually a waste of time listening to: just try "Allarme" and "America OK" to get the whole feeling.

One star. What else?
