4 stars Appunti di Viaggio is the title of the album, but also the entirely instrumental piece with which the CD begins: a suite of about ten minutes, in which the initial sound of the sea opens the way to strings, synthesizers, 12-string guitars and mellotron, which alternate between frequent rhythmic changes and sonorities with typical prog-rock features, sometimes psychedelic. Classic sounds and aggressive rock features merge in Cielo Nero and Notte. In the three songs in English With the strength of my voice, Trust and Your war, our war: the band travels to different places in the world, moving from Syria, the scene of frequent human tragedies, to Colombia, perhaps on the road to lasting peace. The songs in Italian dialect Vaije (Vado) and Ne journe, n'anne (One day, one year) the Sfaratthons make a fusion between jazz/rock and folk/ethnic music with the presence of a folkloric choir which is particularly unusual in rock music. In recent years ProgRock has become again popular worldwide, it is very nice to see that even in Italy there are several groups that still manage to let us experience the beauty of this music. The CD is inside a spectacular 35 pages booklet, where there are the texts, a fair tail and fabulous paintings.
