Rustichelli & Bordini - Icaro

Samadhi - Passaggio Di Via Arpino

Planetarium - Life

Odissea - Unione

For me Planetarium is not at the same level than the three others. I vote Samadhi.

I saw that Planetarium is a band not so much appreciated Unhappyand this is a real sorrow! I read some reviews about them, but I think it should be considered the period of release, so immature for RPI (1971). It is an art rock with many Prog moments certainly not at the same level of Great English bands, certainly not a masterpiece (there are some gaps) but I think an excellent idea underestimated that has more value than other RPI albums. I wrote a review trying to let more appreciable this beautiful work, maybe someone could find it a good listening...

...Here personally  I like also Rustichelli & Bordini, and despite I love Infinity I go for them...

Rustichelli & Bordini for me too, very unpredictable, and I love those confusingly gravelly vocals!

I burned my mini LP of it for the car, so I'm never without it!

All great albums, but this made me realise I haven't listened to the Samadhi album enough...will dig it out!

Samadhi for me. The last track seals the deal for me - even if I do enjoy that Opera Prima. The last two albums here I don't have, but I'd certainly love to remedy thatSmile

Rustichelli & Bordini for me: "Il Cane" is really great!

What a pleasure to see all these participants!! Really a pleasure.
I chosen also Rustichelli & Bordini, a rare gem. Nice to meet you Andrea! "Un cane" is a wonderful desperate song, very intense.

But now Rustichelli & Bordini and Samadhi have the same level..hope to other votes!!
