3 stars I am a huge fan of Seventies Le Orme, especially the albums Collage (great Hammond work), Felona E Sorona (in my opinion their masterpiece) and Uomo Di Pezza (wonderful Mellotron parts). So I was very pleased when I heard that Le Orme was re-founded with two original members, unfortunately not including keyboard player Toni Pagliuca but he is replaced by two keyboardists.

So how about the new Le Orme sound? Well, I am pleasantly suprised, what a wonderful music! The compositions sound very elaborate and contain lots of emotion and subtle musical ideas. The colouring by the two keyboard players (piano and synthesizers) is very tasteful and adds a lush symphonic sound to the music. The vocals by Aldo (also bass and guitar) are very distinctive with a lot of power and emotion, in the same league as John Wetton and Peter Gabriel in my opinion!

With this album Le Orme showcased to be back after many years, I hope once they will visit Holland!
