Review by b_olariu
3 stars Plenilunio (full moon in english) is one of the unknown italian bands from RPI scene from recent years. Formed around 2010 in Piemonte, Italy, they put 2 albums on market, one in 2012 and second Vivo controvento in 2017. Evem their music is fairly progressive in many parts, they aproach a more melodic less intricate romantic side of prog, very similar with lets say Kerygmatic Project or with Davide Spitalieri Uomo irregolare also from Italy.

The music is passionate, with nice warm vocal parts sung in italian by Roberto Maggioto who is also responsable for druming, also the kyboards are quite good and guitars aswell. The balance between italian pop sensibilities and symphonic manuveres is quite well put, there are in places more symphonic prog passages then pop, that is giving to Plenilunio a RPI status.

Forte pieces, opening Via da te, the title track, Copie simili has some good keyboards, bass lines and guitars, senza fiato is to me the best tune of the album (sounding like was taken from any Kerygmatic Project album, really, what a coincidence), it sounds like it is from '80s music.

All in all decent efort by this gone under the radar band, and sure this type of prog is too light for pure symphonic lovers and too prog for pop listners, I think they incorporate both genres quite well and both albums desearve attention, even is just for couple of spins. I particulary like what I heared on Vivo controvento, warm beautiful romatic melodic prog, tipical italian in sound.. A nice art work aswell.

Give them a chance, 3 solid stars.
