4 stars Oh yes! "Il risveglio del principe" (The prince re-awakes) is a quite appropiate title for this album. You can hear remembrances of their first album "Principe di un giorno": slow, mellow songs with nice melodies. Almost exclusive use of acoustic instruments: flute, recorder, sax, violin, cello, guitars, piano, voices, and extensive use of mellotron (not an acoustic instrument, but it sounds like one, isnt it?), and yes, the occasional synth line. Fortunately (at least for me) they keep singing in italian.

Not a gem like their first album, but nonetheless a good follow-up. Though one criticism I may have is a sometimes sloppy drumming. If you did like "Principe di un giorno", you will like this one, just dont make your expectations too high.
