Well fellas, I very much feel that METAMORFOSI's PURGATORIO is a real strict feeling as to why I truly love RPI.
Purgatorio is the true embodiment and character of what makes RPI beautiful, emotive and amazingly symphonic. :)
Such a lovely listen here. I'm sure most of you agree.
I put this album at the top and it's a perfect blend of modern and classic stylings of the genre.

Best RPI album for me in the last 3 years. :)

NEW TROLLS

As a side note, in the 80's Italian pop music was big in Spain and most Italian artists made Spanish versions of their albums, and many of them are still popular over here.

Righ, coming back to my question: New Trolls, worth a listen? which albums?

I don't know all of the New Trolls material, but I rather like their "UT" album.

Oh ok, I also was doing some research and realized that the band and their discography are a bit nightmarish to follow, with splits, legal battles about the name and so on.

I will start with Concerto Grosso and Tempi Dispari, thanks.

Aah I forgot to mention that the band had changed their name by that point. Tempi Dispari is on Prog Archives just under the moniker New Trolls Atomic System.

My tastes in music ... ufff ... (lol !) I don't put fences to my tastes, in my record collecion you can find anything from Abba to ZZ Top, with a good chunk dedicated to prog ... in fact in the last two years I have been listening to almost non stop only prog albums. My favourites since I was a teen are Yes, but I love current bands too (most of them from Scandinavia).

Weird you recommend Tempi Dispari, a friend that just have emailed me also recommends the same album ... and weird too that this album is NOT in progarchives database !!! why ?

^It really depends on what you're looking for in music. The Trolls have different phases to their career but started out as one of the earliest Italian prog bands. Concerto Grosso their most acclamed album and of course also the one most folks go to...but to me personally it has always sounded way too cheesy for it's own good. I much prefer the later incarnation of New Trolls that made Tempi Dispari - an album that has more in common with fusion and space rock though.

Ha ha yes I know, it's on the way right now. I don't have my hopes up really, I just hope it's a good album, I don't expect more than that.

Thumbs Up

It's actually been a lot of fun, and very gratifying once I find a pressing that I am in love with!

I have struggled to fall in love with that band. I'll give it another try.
