4 stars My first Italian prog album, and to this date my favorite, Locanda delle Fate is one of thouse bands that captures you from many angles, top notch musicianship, very emotional, excellent compositions and strong vocals, it seems Locanda was made to make it big time in the prog world... yet this was their only album for 30 years, when in 1999 they released a second album. Much too late, had they not disbanded in the ´70, we might have got another wonderful set of songs. Pitty. Yet, maybe it was for the best. With this, Locanda´s only album, and a great one I might add, they became a fort of lost jewl like Bubu, Dün and Museo Rosembach.

The music is strong yet delicate, with many arragements and a lot of keyboard delights, as there are not one of them here, but two playing at the same time. As I don´t know who is the main keyboard player, or if there even is one, I will say good job Conta and Mazzoglio! Also a stand out is the voice of Leonardo Sasso, whos voice is much stronger than the rest of the italian singers I have heard (so far), yet not less emotional.

The stand out songs are trhe opener A volte un istante di quiete, a delicate instrumental piece with excellent piano, Forse le lucciole non si amano più, a long song full of arregements where Sasso and guitarrist Ezio Vevy (who also sings a bit in this song) have a short but memorable question-awnser type of thing, for me the best thing of the whole song. Profumo di colla Bianca is also a very nice piece rich in small changes and Non chiudere a chiave le stelle, with Vevy as the main vocalist is e beauty.

Highly recommended to any kind of prog fan, there is a bit of everything here, and if you like how thouse italian words sound,full of emotion, then you are in for a tread.
