5 stars Is it me or the artwork looks like a kid's board game?!

I don't know what was in the water in the 70's because the Italians spawned so many miraculously good albums, you don't have enough brains to absorb them all. What to expect? A fun time. The joyous mood is more present with Alusa Fallax, hence the little guy with the balloons on the cover clicking his heels. Not party music per se, but a grandiose rocking time is sure.

I like a band that alternate rock and softer moments and they do it well, they seem to change time signatures at will, juggling with clouds and blue skies. You have to love the use of flute, some of the best I've heard since Thijs van Leer. Just a good mix of flute, grand piano and acoustic guitar with some of the most emotional vocals in all RPI. Usually I steer clear of those, the Italians have a tendency to push my buttons when it comes to vocals: too much, too loud and too often. But not with Fallax, they are in short supply with more 'aaaaahs' then actual words.

You want fat keyboard lines? Calming flutes and loud brass? Festive moments and grandiose ones? Gorgeous melodies and hooks a'plenty? Grab this and gasp at the excellent work these hairy dudes generously gave us.

Even Jupiter and his angels are partying on the cover, how can this not be awesome?!
