2 stars NUOVA IDEA's first job isn't a progressive album, really. It's a mixture of hard rock, psychedelia and some prog hints, specially at the first long track "Come, come, come...", originally the LP first side. The rest is composed by four conventional songs, not bad at all, but I think that they doesn't reach the range that a progressive ear needs.

As another Italian bands, NUOVA IDEA developed its sound later, becoming more progressive (in fact, "In The Beginning" reminds me the first IL BALLETTO DI BRONZO album, "Sirius 2222", very different from their very well known "Ys").

However, those who like the proto prog scene, psychedelic music and the early heavy 70's sound could find an interesting effort here, through the predominant strong guitar riffs and the rough singer's voice... and few keyboards and flutes are adding. BTW, there are many, really many Italian masterpieces that a prog fan must hear before this album.
