3 stars ENEIDE released just one album (surprise) but opened for some Prog heavy-weights back in the day.The organ, flute and drums are all impressive but the big negative for me are the vocals.They are very rough sounding and I can't get used to them so they really take away from my enjoyment of this album at times.

"Cantico Alle Stelle-Traccia 1" is pastoral to start as vocals join in. Some violin-like sounds too. It picks up 1 1/2 minutes in with organ.This is good. Vocals are back later. "Il Male" is drums and organ led as these aggressive vocals come in. Flute too. The vocals are much better when he sings in a reserved manner. "Non Voglio Catene" has vocals after a minute with organ. Synths and drums follow. It picks up with organ before 2 1/2 minutes as the vocals stop.This is excellent. The guitar lights it up 4 minutes in. Synths are back a minute later then vocals. Organ, guitar and drums lead the rest of the way.

"Canto Delle Rassegnazione" is mellow with fragile vocals. Violin-like sounds a minute in. Flute to end it. "Oppressione E Disperazione" is an instrumental with drums and organ to start. The guitar joins in. Great sound. "Ecce Omo" features drums, synths and guitar early on. Flute comes in. It picks up after a minute. Themes are repeated. "Uomini Umili Popoli Liberi" hits the ground running including vocal melodies. Rough vocals join in, flute after 1 1/2 minutes. "Viaggia Cosmico" is spacey until after 2 minutes when the reserved vocals and acoustic guitar take over. "Un Mondo Nuovo" is a short piece with acoustic guitar and synths. "Cantico Alle Stelle-Traccia II" is really a reprise of the opening track.

If I liked the vocals I would give this 4 stars, I like how this sounds instrumentally but the vocals are a big distraction at times.
