1 stars Lots of songs from this album were released on singles and are quite forgettable to say the least. I guess that the worst has been achieved with "Tornare bambino" (a silly cover from Traffic).

Early (but genuine) debut from some prog giants were average. But to include this work into the "PFM" discography is a big mistake IMHHO. If ever this work has to be include into the archive, it should sit under the "I Quelli" umbrella. But I seriously doubt that someone can find any relation with prog here. Nor proto. Nor anything, but weak.

Only a few covers are worth. One of the best is "Lacrime e pioggia" from the greek band "Aphrodite's Child". A fantastic pop song with an incredible melody.

The best one is a cover of a cover. A faithful rendition of the great Purple one: "Hush". What was the purpose???

Yours truly has listened to this "work" with a lot of patience and will try to get it out of the "PFM" discography as soon as possible. Once this achievement being reached, I will delete some lines from this review.

I can only recommend to avoid this work as the pleague. One star.
