3 stars One of the most overrated RPI albums in history... Actually its not an bad album, has some good passages and themes, but often is full of so many Italian prog clichés like for example the alteration of hardrock and soft pastoral themes or nearly randomly mixed unpassable fragments, is often very derivative and unoriginal too. On the other hand there is some very good energetic and passionate singing, atmospheric synth work (signs of later Banfi solo projects) and good guitar work, especially on the longest mournful track. But all this was better done by many other similar heavier Italian bands like for example Alphataurus, Osanna, Semiramis...

But my real biggest problem here is the terrible production - it sounds like bad punk garage recording with no dynamics, no detail. Everything sounds distorted and murky here, its very bad even for often sub-par early 70s Italian production niveau.

Barely 3 stars for me. With better and cleaner production it would be 3,5.
