3 stars It took Banco 3 years to produce new studio material. While common practice today, such a gap must have been a century back in the days. But luckily the band stuck to their trade and didn't wander off to soft-fusion or slick sympho like many other bands did.

We get a Banco album that still revolves around the wonderfull duo-keyboards of the Nocenzi brothers, the tasty lyrical melodies and Francesco Di Giancomo's emotive vocals. The music has nicely evolved from rocking sympho epics to shorter compositions with a very rich sound incorporating classical music influences and even a bit of avant garde. The quality of the songs is fantastic but somehow it doesn't connect with me like previous Banco albums did. I think this album misses the grinta that this band used to have. Another reason may be that the orchestral arrangements are probably not entirely my cup of tea.

Anyway, Banco is still at the top of their game and there is certainly no reason for stopping collecting their albums after Io Sono Nato Libero. Come En Ultima Cena is another very strong album. 3.5 stars+
