Green biography

Brought together by a common passion for the likes of LED ZEPPELIN, The WHO, DEEP PURPLE, QUEEN, PINK FLOYD, etc., Italian art rockers GREEN have honed their skills and developed their own sound through live gigs and working with several prog bands on the local Florence scene in the late 90's. Headed by guitarist/vocalist Fabrizio Pieraccini, the quartet concocted an interesting concept album called "Life" (2003).

Some albums sing lightly of love and life. This one, however, gives the latter subject some serious thought. The concept is about an ordinary guy named "Mr. Kite". Like a kite in the wind, he is tossed around by life's crises but undauntedly goes on, no matter what he finds on his path. The music is a collection of airy melodic hooks, original song writing, expressive vocals and masterful arrangements wrought by keyboard player Giovanni Fanfani and Pieraccini's own guitar play. Pulsating rhythms, courtesy of drummer Michele Fanfani and bassist Guido Melis, give the music a tight edge. Their influences are a mixture of RUSH, WINGER and GIANT as well as a bit of Roger Waters for the heavy lyrical contents.

Nothing particularly groundbreaking but certainly worth checking out if you're a fan of hard rock with good hooks and sharp lyrics.

Review by Ovidiu

4 stars This second album of GREEN continues the excellent impression about the first album LIFE! It is really well done and it has plenty of wonderful moments of inspired songs,brilliant compositions and perfect musicianship!The production is strong too and the multimedia section on the cd is very exciting too!The serious progression compared to the first album can be remarked to the guitar player JACOPO TORRINI,really impressive in some stellar solos whare the it really smoks!FABRIZIO PIERACCINI-the vocalist shines too,his English is very likeble and this time the music is not focused on vocals,but on a ore collective effort-song orientated!!The balance between the slow and midtempo songs is inspired too,but the skow songs have a special feeling and are really touching!It's sad that I think GREEN disbanded after this 2 superbe albums and we don't know if the future will bring a new album from this so talented and almost anonimous Italian band!On OF LOVE AND SOUL ,we don't have particular progressive music,we don't have another conceptual album either,we have great songs brilliantly performed and some passionated compositions written by some talented young musicians-that's all!4,5 STARS for an excellent second album from an exciting young Italian band!

Review by Ovidiu

4 stars This album could be considered to be a forgotten little pearl of the Italian crossover prog,well,let's say better- prog pop material-,very well done,with an excellent production and a superbe vocalis-FABRIZIO PIERACCINIt!I am happy about the fact that GREEN don't suffer of the DREAM THEATER syndrome-let's prove who's the most technical and who has the best duels guitar-keyboards,among others!NOT AT ALL!GREEN have choosed to make a very solid album,a conceptual one,and the high level of musicianship of the members of the band is simply astonishing!If I can make a comparison,I would say that GREEN are strongly influenced by RUSH,sometimes it reminds about STYX,but also they have strong AOR influences too!Musically and technically speaking,they are very ambitious,to make a musical debut with a conceptual album!That needs serious and strong musical skills,both componistic and interpretative!The guys know their instruments,as I've said,the production is excellent and sometimes I've got the feeling that all the music is based arround the superbe voice of FABRIZIO PIERACCINI-very,very good singer,with a very wide range of vocal tones in his wonderful voice!The other musicians are top class too,the guitar solos are well defined and compact,and the rrhythm section is solid too!Not a single minute of weak ideas,a clever and intelligent balance between the mid tempo songs and the-maybee -too numerous ballads! It's an album made with passion and having a strong and well defined musical direction!The second album- edited 2 years later is beautiful too,but it doesn't has the magic of this marevlous debut!4 STARS for a beautiful piece of true art!

Review by dodaro

1 stars An italian band with personality but with poor ideas (and nothing about prog). This work is a light rock/pop album, every progman will found it too common, too sweet, but nothing to do with the sweetness of a masterpiece by King Crimson, Genesis or Premiata Forneria Marconi. Saying the truth I don't know why Green are in this archive and great italian artists like Franco Battiato lacks. I can't explain to me. So, Green are a pop band without any sense of innovation. The best (best is a big word) of the album is in the first part, with "The wind of love" and "Mr. Kite". The rest, in my opinion, doesn't have to be considered. Really a poor album. Don't buy it.
Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition.
