4 stars Everytime I listen to this album I like it even more.

Una Dolcezza Nuova- A great track. Starts off with a church-like organ and after a more bombastic part begins a very sweet playing between the piano and the vocal, then they are joined by some more instruments but still playing very smoothly. The music ends with the piano and vocals alone. 9/10

Gioco di Bimba- A very sweet and short track. Sure its commercial-oriented but its still very nice and fresh IMO because of the Folk feel it gives, almost barroque-ish, and also has a nice clavinet playing. 8/10

La Porta Chiusa- I didnt like this track that much in the beginning but it grew on me and now, altough its far from being my favorite track here, I think its a very good track especially on the instrumental side. 7/10

Breve Immagine- Also a sweet and short track but what a great one! It begins with the organ and vocals and then sets off to a great melody with a great mellotron. 9/10

Figure Di Cartone- One of my favorite tracks. One of the things I like more in this song is the contrast between the acoustic guitar and the fuzz organ sound and the organ solo that fits perfectly and that I LOVE!!!Altought it could be a little longer the song is perfect. 10/10

Aspettando L'alba- A great acoustic song. Love the guitar and love the vocals. It plays for +- 3 minutes before going into a sort of psychadelic part and after +-1 minute it ends with the inicial acoustic phrase. 8/10

Alienazione- The weakest track here for me but still has some very good drumming and synth playing, I just find it a little repetitive. 6/10

Overrall, I think Le Orme's problem with this album (and also felona... from what I've heard) is that most of the songs are very short. But what matters is quality not quantity and Le Orme makes some of the most beautiful prog with short songs.

I would recommend this album to start with Le Orme, over Felona.

My rating: 8,14/10 = 4,07/5 = 4,1 stars
