3 stars Buyer beware!

This is not a second album of prog from Reale Accademia Di Musica but an album of soft rock songs by Adriano Monteduro backed by RADM.

The music is not too bad though; think of it as sort of an Italian James Taylor, CSN, or Bread album. Quality soft 70s rock with acoustic and electric guitar, piano, and decent vocals. Occasionally the music picks up and rocks a bit but mostly it's a chill-out affair. The vocals are very soft and pleasing, the guitar work delicate and the percussion competent where it is present.

The BMG mini-lp sleeve CD features a high-quality glossy gatefold album cover with an awesome Tolkien-esque fantasy painting of tree dwelling creatures in the forest. The album is only recommended to Italian collectors, fans of exceptional album art, and fans of Italian soft pop-rock music. It is good but it is definitely not what prog heads are looking for. Of course if you're like me you'll buy it anyway hoping against hope for more RADM. You'll get just a hint of a taste of their previous glorious album. For me personally, I think it's just charming enough to be a keeper.

Review by ZowieZiggy
2 stars This album has very little to do with the great debut of the band released two years prior to this work. The wording that James is using in his review are rather appropriate: it is an album from Adriano Monteduro backed with Reale Accademia. Only that from the original line-up, only two members survived (Federico Troiani and Roberto Senzasono). So, it is half of the band which is giving a hand to Adriano Monteduro.

The music one can discover here is more folkish than Italian symphonic IMO and it is quite misleading for the ones who thought of getting genuine and great music like we are used to with this genre.

Folk tunes like Buongiorno Nel Bosco are mixed with more straight forward rock (La Favola.). A bombastic feeling is provided thanks to some fine keyboards and when the whole cools down, I admit that the moving melody is superbly sung by Monteduro. It is probably the best and the most complex song from this album.

This work sounds definitely too folkish for me. Italian folk.not my cup of tea to be tell the truth (Le Figlie Dell'erba ). Pastoral atmosphere (Mezzogiorno, and Una Canzione, Suoni Di Umanitį) to close this quite album. Since I was expecting something totally different, I can't be really enthusiast about this recording. The rocking Le Montagne Nel Tramonto is still a good composition

Two stars. It is not because songs are sung in Italian that they do belong top the genre I praise so much: Italian symphonic. There is nothing (or very little) as such here.

4 stars It was Jeff Carney's five star review that made me want this one. I didn't even know Jeff did some reviews here, he's a guy a lot of us turn to when we want to know what version of a cd to buy. He is the "sound" expert. Anyway as others have mentioned this isn't really an RADM album but rather an Adriano Monteduro album with RADM backing him up as his band. This is Italian Folk music at it's best. I fell for it instantly which surprised me since i'm not big on Folk music. The Italian vocals and intricate guitar work are gorgeous to say the least.

"Buongiorno Nel Bosco" opens with acoustic guitars and vocals that create wonder. Drums, vocal melodies and electric guitar before 2 1/2 minutes. It blends into my favourite "La Favola Guardiano Del Bosco" as piano and atmosphere joins in. When the vocals come in I get this lump in my throat (gulp). It picks up after 2 minutes with drums and piano leading to the end. "Mezzogiorno" is vocal and acoustic guitar led. The vocal melodies are a nice touch. "Le Figlie Dell'erba" sounds so beautiful early on. Some backing vocals in this one too. Piano and drums after a minute. Electric guitar a minute later to the end. Nice.

"Viaggio Libero" has acoustic guitar and soft vocals to start. It does pick up some. Great sound when the piano and drums arrive. "Le Montagne Nel Tramonto" is laid back with vocals and electric guitar. A much fuller sound before 2 1/2 minutes. So good. "Preludio ..." has acoustic guitar and vocal melodies. Drums and piano before 2 minutes. Love this stuff. "Una Canzone" is a mellow acoustic track with vocals. "Suoni Di Umanita" ends the album with acoustic guitar and reserved vocals with drums and piano joining in.

A must for fans of Italian Folk. An solid 4 star record.

4 stars Check any preconceived notions at the door...this is not Reale Accademia di Musica's second album. This project, a collaboration between various members of RAM and singer- songwriter Adriano Monteduro, is a Prog Folk treasure from 1974. A bit maligned and critically derided album, Reale Accad ...

5 stars An absolute masterpiece on par with any symphfolk effort from the genre. One gem after another after another after another. This one makes all the right moves and the songs range from superb to downright breathtaking. Sensational musicianship throughout that is restrained and serves the songs tr ... (read more)

4 stars This is an Adriano Monteduro's solo album, with Reale Accademia di Musica as the backing band to his compositions. Many consider this the second album of the band, but it isn't, they only lent their talent to Monteduro's songs. What is important is to talk a bit about the music: it is a very a ... (read more)
