The first three are all 10/10.
It went downhill fast.

Hi,

I love their early stuff, in Italian, not the translated stuff and the confusion that the American releases made of the albums themselves.

However, I have heard, recently on SPACE PIRATE RADIO a bunch of the new/latest (don't know where it fits yet), and while different, to my ears it was like this was going back to the very early feel that you had in the first 2 albums, but I have to listen to it again. 

I had a similar reaction to the new BANCO album (both the live and regular album) and after another go, it starts to grow on you ... and even though you are always remembering Giacomo's voice, the new material was still very nice and the singing parts did not let me down (so to speak) ... and that usually makes for a good album ... Had the same feeling about PFM ... which, really, was the same thing that happened to us when these first came out ... you had to play it again, and all of a sudden both bands clearly hit your inner space very well!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now try finding your own mirror/art! www.pedrosena.com

Actually chocolate Kings is very good, but is underrated because itís in English, def some of their best material

Another nod to Chocolate Kings...start there and work backwards (but stick with their original Italian language albums!)

Chocolate Kings could have been perfect but for Paper Charms. 

There are a couple of great 2 CD compilations of the band that cover pretty much everything (one is Italian for the language 'snobs').



The Manticore releases are beautifully produced at the same studios that ELP recorded at. Pete Sinfield was heavily involved in the process including the English translation of the lyrics.  Don't let the natural animosity towards ELP influence you. These are great versions and worth having imo.

1. Per un amico
2. Storia di un minuto
3. La isola di niente
4. Chocolate Kings


5. Stati di immaginazione
6. Buona Novella
7. PFM in Classic
8. Jet Lag


As far as studio albums this is my list. The gap is there on purpose. And though I own I don't really listen to the others.

Aside from the first two which are closely related, the others are each so very distinct in style from the others.

And there are several live albums, primarily Cook and Piazza del Campo, with the archival releases (especially BBC) and Il Suono di un Tempo also being excellent.
