4 stars Especially, the activity of this New Trolls might be also important in the flow on which various musicians were acting as a band that supports the dawn of Prog Rock of Italy. Generally, the evaluations might be able to be found gathering in the album that they announced to the work in the 70's a lot.

Especially, the work known well among the fan and listeners might be an album that spent between 1971 and 1972 and was announced. The method of the music character concerning albums of men who announced at this time and the expression will give the impression that evolved very much with passage. The activity of Prog Rock of Italy at that time had details from which carrying everything before one the market and one main current were completed regardless of the comparison of each album. Consideration concerning the content of an individual album is different according to the purpose \ reality. However, details of a content of the album at this time that New Trolls announced and rapid evolution might be the points that should make a special mention.

"Concerto Grosso" that they announced in 1971 is originally produced because of the music of the movie. Classic part with consistency carried out with Part1 and Part 2 and part where a certain kind of baroque was accompanied. The part of a bold orchestration might have multiplied the spur by their music characters at this time.

The music character of "Concerto Grosso" gave indeed complete construction because there was details as the music for the movie shown by the above-mentioned description. Attention is attracted as a still .."Concerto Grosso".. masterpiece the item of Prog Rock of Italy. However, because the work of Luis Enriquez Bacalov was important as the concept for the album, "Concerto Grosso" might have had the impression that respect of competing by Bacalov is shown with the band. The element of the pastoral music character and the culture was one of the features of Euro Rock at this time for the dawn of Prog Rock of Italy. Each band used an original technique and it is likely to have gone in the part where a good music character of Italy of P.F.M and I Pooh in respect technical as represented was emphasized.

Following of part classic as flow derived from intense part and "Concerto Grosso" to "Searching For A Land" announced in 1972 continuing. In this flow, the band might be evidence that the desire concerning the creation appears enough very much. And, to agree with this flow, they do not neglect the pursuit of the music character. Flow that Frank Langelli joined Bass player. Or, the band that received Maurizio Salvi in the keyboard player might have acted on their music characters well. They replace the member as a result with the revolution of the music character further by centering on Vittorio De Scalzi that plays leader's role. However, the construction of the melody to always express after they debuted and the height of the perfection of the tune might have had the expression besides other bands with evolution. And, it will be able to be thought that this flow is surely connected with this "UT". Their expressions were complete as the flow that reached this "UT" at last as a work of their initial representative.

After it is formed to 1966, New Trolls is always offering the music of fine quality as well as other bands. It shifts to four person organization in 2nd album though the band was five person organization at the time of the debut. The activity of the band after this "UT" is announced leaps further with member's replacement. And, the member who is on the register in the band develops into "Nico,Gianni,Frank,Maurizio". The part where the history of Euro Rock indeed at that time is symbolized can be found if it thinks about the flow that shifts here to "Ibis".

It is one of the bands that this New Trolls is very important as the band that supports the market Prog Rock of Italy from the period first. It is likely to be always held in high esteem of course as a leading group in Italy as well as Banco, Osanna, and Le Orme. This time might be in the point that the song and the melody are completely constructed as a good point that characterized and Prog Rock of Italy had. Technical respect might be necessary of course partially of the expression. However, an important point will hit the pastoral song and melody for the expression that various bands , for example, this time have had. There was originality from which New Trolls was always carried out. However, the album to announce in the 70's will have to be paid to attention especially if the music character refined in the age is considered.

"Studio" is a part of the organ that produces the sound of the solemnity with the impact by China Gong. And, the flow of the melody of complete classic is perfect. Classic melody that piano and organ do. The tune develops here further.

"XXII Strada" is a tune mainly composed of six rhythms. The role of interlude might be played in the album. Piano sound in which completely aggressive melody is constructed. The performance of the band established by making good use of fast Passage is overwhelming. And, the listener is stimulated attended with a melody that is more aggressive the melody of the guitar. The band makes a complete dash feeling in union with the organ. The rhythm might also have the part that looks like the jazz waltz.

As for "I Cavalieri Del Lago Dell'Ontario", the keyboard and the guitar progress to the march drum coming in succession. Melody of song that produces transparent feeling. The part of the melody that becomes intense and the composition by the chorus might be splendid. There is exactly a flavor of the music character that they have. The line and the guitar of Bass that supports solo of the keyboard also contribute to the tune well.

"Storia Di Una Foglia" is a tune with the flavor of Folk Rock. The melody extremely gives the listener the relief. The part where an acoustic part was emphasized is pastoral. And, the obbligati flows with the guitar. There might be a good flow including the melody of the song.

"Nato Adesso" is a powerful ballade with complete expression of feelings. Part of song to get on beautiful piano melody. Progress of peculiar melody and Chord of Prog Rock of Italy. The introduction of the synthesizer is also splendid. When the rhythm joins, the tune heads for the top further. Especially, guitar Solo of about five minutes and ensemble of the band will invite the listener to the crucible of the excitement. The composition of the tune is perfect.

"C'e Troppa Guerra" might be a tune to emphasize the part of Rock in this album. Construction of Riff of guitar that has both intense part and peculiar part. Or, the composition used properly for the part of the voice with the anacatesthesia has originality. The tune becomes intenser and progresses. Making the sound in which psychedelic is recollected also has expanded the width of the tune.

In "Paolo E Francesca", the melody of a dry guitar is a feature. The ballade that contains love makes a good, transparent feeling. The band performed well has a good flavor. Especially, the part that duplicates the conversation by the guitar and flits in the speaker might be a good idea. The sound of the percussion instrument also contributes well for the tune.

"Chi Mi Puo Capire" is a grand tune to express the part of "Quietness" of the band and "Movement". Flow that power of expression of singing is slowly emphasized. Flow of melody of magnificent keyboard that gently wraps the song. A beautiful melody is good in the progress of Chord each other. The melody of good piano Solo and the song is extremely grand. The part of following the power of expression of the band and the music character might be exactly blocked in this tune and it appear. The composition of this album is calculated the overall and well.

It is an album that offered very high-quality music in the work group of New Trolls in the 70's.
