5 stars It has become easy. You just follow the sad two star rating trail of proggophobic morons, consisting of heroes like daemacho, waeguk, vagabond1, marfish and so on and they will lead you infallibly to progressive rock masterpieces. I don't know what's the matter with these guys. Isn't there a nice hip hop site for them to visit? I love listening to the albums I like and I forget about the ones I didn't. Not everyone has the same taste.

Having listened a couple of times in a row, to Neo, I got more and more impressed. La Torre Del'Alchimista is a fantastic band, well led by keyboard player, Michele Muti, a true virtuoso and a prolific composer. Those who love their keyboard sounds vintage, are well served on this album. The vocals, performed by Michele Giardino, are as with most Italian bands, sung in Italian and that adds to the music. The band is mainly a keyboard, bass & drums line up, but there are some excellent participations of guest players on a flute, sax, violin and guitars.

The music is quite complex, but never loses sense of harmony and first class melodies. I think Neo is one of the finest products of the "new Italian progrock school" and I won't hesitate to call it a masterpiece, which will enter my cd player many more times.
