4 stars Excellent release from this italian band from the 70īs that I had never heard about it until recently. I am amazed by the number of obscure good bands from that country (and also from Japan) that did not go past hte first album (well, in this case until the 90īs when there was the release fo some unissued material from Mellow records). Nevertheless, I was very surprised by the quality of the CD: the songwriting is very good, the playing is superb and the singer, although not really outstanding, is fine anyway,

The production is only average, but the groupīs perfomance is brilliant, full of power and conviction that eventually overcome all the recordingīs flaws. Their sound is very keyboard driven (there are two keyboards players) and a bit more jazzy than most other italian groups of the period, but only slightly. There are no fillers and the the quality of the whole album, composition-wise, is very high. The vocals are all sung in the native language and fit very well into the music.

If you like italian symphonic prog you can not miss this one. Iīm glad I found this little known gem. It is only a pity that this group did not go on to have a longer career. Certainly they had everything to succeed. And this CD is proof of that. 4 stars.
