3 stars Well, with all my respect for the production by Raul Caprio (Kaliphonia Records), concerning excellent, even though sometimes prolix bands like H20 and Deus Ex Machina, by adding some remarkable works by Consorzio Acqua Potabile (often-actually- I don't get crazy for all these works, especially when the production is so close to that one by seventies!!), this time I'm a bit disappointed about it!!Certainly I always hope to find any new band in Italy,still able to let me be enthusiast (for example bands like Il Trono dei Ricordi or Aufklarung, belonging to the best romantic tradition in Italy, were able to do that...),instead once again I have to listen to a remarkable derivative work, with an "old production"!! It seems naturally another work in regress, even though the music features -that We have always loved- are included inside the present album. However the sense of tiredness, due to this strong emulation of the best 70's classic prog stereotype (the same defect regarding works like "La Maschera di Cera", that I've already reviewed...), is hidden behind the corner...nothing diverse within our progressive front in Italy, but it never minds!! Everything has been written about this attempt of rebirth and I don't want to add anything else...
