3 stars While I do think this is slightly better than their debut there are whole sections (especially the vocal ones) that are disappointing. Not a fan of the album cover either (haha).

"Fermo Al Semaforo" builds with sounds including synths. The guitar before 1 1/2 minutes reminds me of Conny Veit. "Sognando" sounds really good with the keyboards and guitar making that happen. Vocal melodies join in. "La Stalla Con I Buoi" features reserved vocals and acoustic guitar. It kicks in around a minute before settling again before 2 1/2 minutes. Kicks back in a minute later with some nice guitar. "Risognando" is a short piece with little happening. "L'albero" opens with sporadic drumming. It kicks in with some distorted organ before 1 1/2 minutes, guitar follows. Synths come in then the tempo picks up. Organ 4 minutes in before it turns pastoral a minute later to end it.

"Non Mi Ritrovo" opens with drums as organ then guitar join in. It settles into a good groove. "Finale" opens with piano before it settles. "Storia Di Un Uomo E Di Una Donna Aeternun" opens with acoustic guitar and piano as reserved vocals come in. Drums and bass follow. Not a fan of this one. "Tema" has an aggressive intro before it settles a minute in with vocals. Not a fan of this one either. "Caccia" opens with synths as drums eventually join in. It's building and blends into "Interludio". Piano takes over. Guitar before 3 1/2 minutes. Synths are back. "Finale" features lots of atmosphere as synths build.

Lots to like here, but not enough to make it 4 stars i'm afraid.
