3 stars For me, all Italian Progresive bands ( or their albums) are divided to two big groups: one is ROCK bands ( it means ,that the main their music is ROCK, with elements of classic music, jazz, avantgarde, folk,world - whatever you want), and another is different music groups, playing some kind of music ( most often classic or Italian pop) with rock elements.

So, if Le Orme earlier and best works ( at least some of them) are keyboards -driven progresive, this new album isn't.

Here you can hear midtempo pompastic orchestrations, with classic italian pop vocal, theatrical drama and plenty of synth-pop elements. OK, music is still enough complex, but during all listening you feel yourself as by mistake you just came to San-Remo summer festival for rich,fat and lazy tourists.

Many Italian prog bands are always balancing on the edge between prog-rock and classic/church/italian pop music. But if in early 70-th you had big possibility to find something really original and inventive, in XXI century you can get quality pop-rock in best case.
