3 stars 'La Grande Casa' is a charming album, even if it's a bit short (6 tracks ranging between 4:33 and 5:33). This is the only record of theirs I have, so going by what's on offer here - beautiful acoustic guitaring from Alberto Radius (also playing lead electric and some Bass), the elegant keyboard arrangements of Gabriele Lorenzi providing a rich and full-sounding symphonic soundscape, and the simple, but effective drumming of Tony Cicco. All members contributing vocals, but not often in a 'massed' way. The melodies are memorable, the songs constructed in a way which demonstrates many moods, from mysterious, brooding intro's to harder rocking sections, but never losing focus or taking off on any 'tangents'. A fairly consistent and accessible album where its rather 'safe' nature belies its strength. 3.5 stars.
