5 stars Talk about beautiful music !! It is dynamic and refreshing to our ears.

It sounds so good, I find this album at least as good as the oldest Le Orme album (or even better, if it's possible !) This album might be a landmark as for the composition, the arrangement, the mixing : there some good guitars, violins, and of course very inspired keyboards.

It's a concept album and (in my opinion) it should be considerered as a single whole epic of 42 minutes (a little short, indeed).

From the classic trio line-up of the '70's, Aldo Tagliapietra (bass, guitars and vocals) and Michi Dei Rossi (drums) are still there. To complete the band, Michele Bon (organ) and Andrea Bassato (piano & violin).

As the album begins (Il Vento, Il Cielo E La Notte), we already ear that Aldo Tagliapietra has kept his beautiful voice in top shape. Also the addition of a violinist is surely a wonderful idea. Then, it moves to a more intense (hardest) part (Danza Della Terra), to return to sung section (Risveglio). And, what a singer he is ; he certainly has a very own style of singing (as in Lord Of Dance). It moves to a piano introduction (Danza Della Pioggia) a the famous Dove Tutto E'! skilfully mixing the sitar, the violin, percussions, and again Aldo's magnificent voice. The third part of Danza Del Vento (good guitar on that one) and the reprise of Risveglio conclude this album in a wondurful way.

I will state that this is enough close to a five-stars album. Don't give a second thought et give it a try. You won't regret it
