5 stars The second album has even improved band's composing abilities and established them as one of the leading acts in the Italian progressive rock scene. The band had ample talent to deservedly become known abroad. Vocals are expressive and operatic but there is enough space to instruments to dominate.

Operatic vocals start the album to be changed into excellent analogue synth sound and tasty guitar. From the beginning, the band demonstrates originality by going their weay of doing music. In the fast part of the track, dynamic organ and piano dominate, the melody and instruments rise and sink in the opposite directions. A classic and classical moment with xylophone, organ and flute comes to your ears a few minutes later on.

The second track, "La conquista della posizione eretta" shows the keyboard domination and prowess at its best; multiple ARPs.

Excellent album and a prime example of a leading band in progressive rock outside of England.
