4 stars This second album by Quella Vecchia Locanda takes a drastically different path from the first but the journey is still satisfying.

With just about all of the hard blues rock elements of their first album removed in favour of subdued classical textures, the tone of this album is very different from the first. It still works excellently, however, and how this album could be best described is "refined". The production is improved, the moods are more delicate. Oddly enough, the structure of the album is generally looser and more free-flowing since it isn't bound to a concept like "Quella Vecchia Locanda" was. It's for that reason that I give this album one star lower of a rating. While it's an excellent album, "Il Tempo Della Gioia" doesn't take the listener on as much of a journey in its short 35 minute span as its predecessor.

Still a great addition to any RPI collection, though. 4 stars.
