Review by lor68
3 stars Well this album is not bad and quite well produced by Mauro Moroni (Mellow Records, former producer of my band LETHE); and moreover the purpose is noble, despite of this album adding a few symphonic breaks through in comparison to the original work, because now Gianni Leone is using a couple of digital synthezisers. Well the main defect is such a lack of a true sound combination and utilization as well of the whole color range, as you expect from him. Neither the original opera was characterized by an important choice of the presets or any program regarding the keyboards sound (A true Mini-Moog or a Prophet should have enriched the sound a lot, instead...).

Ok make your choice, anyway if you're found of the original album you can't do without this new one, otherwise stay away from it!!

3 stars In 1996 Il Balletto Di Bronzo performed on a progressive rock festival in Rome, only singer/keyboardist Gianni Leone was from the original line-up. If you compare the music on this CD (running time 70 minutes) with the music from their acclaimed album "Ys" from 1972 the vintage keyboard sound has disappeared and is in fact very modern. The 11 compositions sound pleasant featuring some spectacular work (with hints from Keith Emerson) but they don't evoke the intricate atmosphere from the early Seventies. The song "Technoage" has even a house climate delivering a tight and propulsive beat (along flashy synth runs)! This is a decent keyboard-oriented progrock CD but if you are longing for more like "Ys", it will turn out in a disappointment.

1 stars I've debated for a while whether one-star reviews serve any purpose and if I should even bother writing them; well, this came on the iPod shuffle the other day and I decided that someone needs to know how truly awful it is. Maybe awful is too strong a word, but it is definitely below average ... (read more)

3 stars Album released in 1999 "Trys". The group was reorganized to participate in the rock festival, and this work was recorded. It is a content that added some plays to the sound source of live. It is a trio of Gianni Leone, Ugo Vantine, and Romolo Amice. Music was collected from the number of "YS" ... (read more)
