Wow this album is very expensive.   Why is that?   I ordered it for over $30.  Some sites have it for $46.
 
I love the first 2 concerto grosso's by them.  I've read good reviews about seven seasons.  
 
Anyone who has it care to comment about whether they liked it or not and how it compares to their previous grosso's?   Big%20smile

thanks to both of you for your replies.    I have ordered it.
 
Greg Walker is selling it for $30.   That's still cheaper than amazon @ 46.

It arrived and it's a great album!!!   Just as good as Concerto Grosso #1.  Actually, it's probably better than the first 2.   Sounds so 1970's!!!    Kudos to the Trolls!!!    I'd call this album a classic and I'm a phoenatic for 1970's italian prog.   Great Job trolls.  This is the best italian prog album of the 1980's, 1990's and 2000's that I have heard.   And that includes all of the reunions of Metamorfosi, PFM, Le Orme and of course all fo the newer italian bands like Finnisterri, Dues Ex Machina, DFA, etc...
 
Great job Trolls!!!
