Yuck. 

And H, I agree with you about the Chocolate Kings cover--never liked that one. Love the album, though!

This is possibly the worst cover I've ever seen, short of some of the truly distasteful covers (such as the early Scorpions albums):

^ That looks great! PFM has always been great live, but what has bothered me is that they keep playing the same material. Having them do some different pieces is great.

But boy that's going to be expensive! Everything through Aerostella is expensive, and I think this is only coming out on LP/CD combo (if I read that correctly), so I'd better save up for this one!

Classic RPI covers are in most cases as good as the music.
Some are among the covers in the whole Prog Scene.

I don't like PFM - Chocolate Kings (the original Big Fat Mama one)

I also tend to find band photos as covers very boring.

Michael, Sognando is a worthy effort, and Grande Casa is very good too, though more poppy as H said. The first two are psych--I rarely listen to them. But if you like psych they are on the good side of psych. By the way, Sognando is on Greg's list of all time best albums. I don't rate it as high as he does, but to me it's a good 4 star album, Grande Casa about 3.5. 

When I ripped Sognando to my computer, I used the Brazilian cover instead of the horrible Italian one.

uh, brazilian cover???Shocked

...I should check it out then...

I agree wholeheartedly. I was not too keen on the first few spins but the more I let it blanket me , the more comfortably numb I became. Great album.....new one soon....

You should invest some more time on Egonon, I think it is one
of the very best albums to come out of Italy in the last 10 years.
