4 stars Go out and get this album immediately... "do not pass go..do not collect $200,00"..FORMULA 3 were one of Italy's first and most popular psychedelic prog rock band of its time. "Dies Irae" their first album is greatly overshadowed by their later releases (which were also very good), but let me say that you must start with this album. This band was stacked with talent with Alberto Radius (guitars, vocals) who would later form "Il Volo", Lucio Battisti (keyboards)... Battisti was then (and still is) one of the biggest pop stars in Italy, a singer/composer whose success was founded on his long-time collaboration with lyricist simply named Mogol with drums by Toni Cicco. Musically these guys are somewhere in the DEEP PURPLE school with heavy emphasis on guitar and keyboard interplay. In the end they combined to write and record perhaps my favourite Italian Psych rock album of all time. This album also includes one rockin version of "The Four Tops" classic "Walk Away Renee" which bleed with deep tones keyboards and HENDRIX-like guitar psychy freakouts. Can't say enough about this album... unbelievable stuff...!

2 stars This is the first album of Formula 3 and it's produced by Lucio Battisti. The first track is "Dies irae", a public domain song elaborated by Formula 3: it's a great opener blending psychedelic-rock with Gregorian chant and it's my favourite song of this band. The other song anyway are not at the same level. "Non è Francesca" is a cover of Lucio Battisti but I prefer by far the original Battisti's version. There are other songs written by Mogol-Battisti ("Questo folle sentimento" and "Sole giallo, sole nero", not their best songs.), other two originals ("Perché... perché ti amo" and "Se non è amore cos'è") and the cover of a song previously recorded by The Left Banke and The Four Tops, "Walk Away Renée". In the whole that's nothing special: though well played, it's just a psychedelic-rock album and the quality of the song-writing in my opinion is not high.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars The opening and title track is a superb piece of heavy and dark psychedelia. The combination with some choirs during the second part of this great song is also a very interesting aspect and add some fine originality as well. But it will be difficult for the band to keep this high quality level throughout the whole of this debut album.

If you like heavy and pumping Hammond organ, the finale of ''Dies Irae'' will please you an awful lot. This is truly a great piece of music.

The other songs are a mix between a couple of short pieces with little interest, some more pop-oriented tracks (''Non è Francesca'') and some fine psychedelic mood, with a typical late sixties sound ('' Se Non è Amore Cos'è'').

This album is quite different of what the Italian genre is offering, but it is also one of the first of its kind (Italian prog I mean). It is of historical importance for the genre but most of the progheads might have some difficulties to enter into such work. If ever you are nostalgic of the early days of psychedelia, or heavy prog (''Sole Giallo Sole Nero'') this is an interesting album, though.

Three stars.

3 stars Considering this was released in 1970 this is an impressive album. It's too bad the mood and style of the opening track wasn't sustained throughout though. FORMULA 3 were a trio out of Italy. The guitarist went on to form IL VOLO.

"Dies Irae" is dark as the drums beat slowly. The guitar then organ join in. An amazing sound here. This is quite intense. Vocals 3 minutes in. They will come and go. Big finish. "Non E Francesca" kicks in quickly with a catchy beat. Vocals before a minute as raw guitar plays over top. Organ comes in later. Vocals come in after a minute on "Perche...Perche Ti Amo". The organ, drums and guitar are prominant. They contrast the quiet and loud passages throughout.

"Questo Folle Sentimento (Intro)" kicks in right away. I like when it settles. It blends into "Questo Folle Sentimento" where it builds with vocals and organ followed by guitar. "Walk Away Renee" is a song I remember as a kid. FORMULA 3 cover it pretty well with English vocals. I like the chorus because it brings back memories. "Se Non E Amore Cos'e" kicks in with organ, drums and guitar. It settles. Fragile vocals after 1 1/2 minutes with floating organ. "Sole Gialio,Sole Nero" is fairly uptempo with organ. It settles when the vocals arrive. It picks back up.This is a fun track. Lots of organ before 5 minutes. Drums take over a minute later.

I can't give it 4 stars but I feel it deserves respect considering the year and how well done it is. 3.5 stars.

2 stars Being a motorsport fan, this band caught my attention some years ago. It has taken me until this week to get to know this album, though. This is the debut album from this band who has gone on to release some albums. This is also a pretty spicy album somewhere between Psychedelic/Space Rock, H ... (read more)

3 stars 3.75 really! First look to the year: 1970! "Dies Irae" is an incredible record, principally if you look to British year 1970 scene (please, see my Caravan "if I could..." review). Most Italian huge prog movement began after 1971. So this and THE TRIP are one of the first avantgarde italian efforts. ... (read more)

4 stars The first work released in 1970 "Dies Irae". The content is psychedelic rock. It is an acid and a wild performance. Really however, I feel the pop sense that seems to be Italy. The instrumental part is devised. It is a content that psychedelically expressed traditional romanticism. It is a mas ... (read more)

3 stars Formula 3 had very different approach to music, even in this album. They were the band that supported Battisti, and here Mogol was their inspirator. Thus, even if a good level of phantasy is present, their main characteristic are quite easy to remember pieces. In any case, differently from Batt ... (read more)
