2 stars This second studio album from "Quella" investigates more and more the classical style. Sorry guys, but this is not really for me.

This style is very much of their own and was already to be noticed in their first album but only at times. On this album, it is the dominent part and there is nothing I can do about it, but I just can't appreciate it. It seems that this album is recorded using a symphonic band. At times it is bearable ("A Forma Di...") but half an hour of this treatment is just too much.

If I would like to listen to madrigals (which I wouldn't) I don't need to enter the Italian symph section of my discography to do so. While not classical, we'll get some jazz music and average vocals ("Il Tempo della Gioia"). Do I miss something ??? Italian prog ?

The last two songs are not able to convert me either. Same stuff, I'm afraid. I particularly dislike "Un Giorno...". There will be some nice intrumental breaks during "Accuaducto". At last ! But the vocals will ruin them all.

I honestly can not rate this album higher than two stars.
