3 stars 01. Fermo Al Semaformo You knows what will come when the music starts not short? Usually what comes next is mortifying. And that is what we have here. The band begins with a guitar smart, and of course, with a variety of keyboards, doing all that climate that only Italian to even the bands. The guitars of Alberto has a special tone that first part, almost percussive, at times with the battery.

02. Sogno The original keyboard riff is a hit, the battery at the beginning of Tony whole 'confusion', the guitar comes with a very heavy pitch, but without exaggerating. Vocalizations somewhat 'strange' appear among the macabre riffs giving an impression of 'mass-to-any-thing'. The keyboardist Gabriele has to unfold in many to see the role of all the keyboards that decided to put in the sound, never succeed.

03. Con la Stall I Buoi Here the voice first appears in a ballad full of sound and voice effects on (which by the way is very beautiful) as if in a cave. Then the guitar riff starts a killer for the whole band into the wheel. This song has a chorus and interesting, as all three vocal folds by the end of each verse. A battery of ground very nice just damned the opportunity to pack in a band and rock theme entitled to vigorous guitar break and everything. 04. Risognando Risognando just the first part of the disk (E Sogno Risognando) which strangely is not all parties in a single track would be as usual. Here I think the guitar at various times as a cuíca (laughter). L'Ultima Foglia

05. L'Albero Battery in command, keyboards vertigo and 'full', the Hammond makes miracles. This time who commands the entire range of the guitar is Alberto, doing all the melodies, while the keyboard is the perfect bed, just waiting for the time you come into action on a solo worthy of respect. The track is full of climates and face all the time.

06. Non Mi Ritrovo The beginning of battery is not so nice, I do not know whether intentional but here the ground seems to be wrong at any moment (laughs). What's next, yes, climate variations and has Jasons well, filled with layers of keys and a guitar fuzz and interesting. Here is what will a jazz-fusion and interesting.

07. Finale The end of the second part (L'Ultima Foglia) has guitars, leaving the mixture very interesting, the various' orquestrações' the band make a great contrast.

08. Storia Di Un Uomo E Di Una Donna The single track 'loose' has so low of truth (which I have no idea of who the plays), has voice and interesting, rather serious, with beautiful background vocalizations and a melody pretty well. It is the most 'normal' despite the vocal background. Aeternum

09. Tema The last part of the album (Aeternum) is starting a space rock from the underworld, sensational, this time the guys broke everything and in a way unparalleled, instrumental and very well established compound. But it is only an introduction to Part pirada voice, with voice and guitar doubled in focus. But the most interesting are the same voice, those who remind me of the PFM Storia Di Un Minuto.

10. Caccia Strange part of drums, the song had changed its rotation, which makes it very interesting.

11. Interludio This is sensational original piano, a classical piece worthy of the great, reminded me Jürgen Fritz (Triunvirato), Keith Emerson (E, L & P) and Jhon Tout (Renaissance), and that only radical in the choice of the passages. When the band enters the battery is embedded in a very strange, indeed, throughout the disc, some synthesizers appear here, the guitar as if they were single, two walks by boxes of sound the same way as did Brian May (Queen) only that a more modest. And a cool riff. The final part of the song is completely delusional and space. Unless the piano final.

12. Finale To close the disc with a theme just short body. This disc is mostly instrumental, and actually has 3 separate pieces in all tracks, the 3 are 1-E Sogno Risognando, 2-L'Ultima Foglia, 3-Aeternun, and of course also has Storia Di Un Uomo Di Una E Donna.
