2 stars I must be missing something here. I just can't get excited about UOMO DI PEZZA. It is far from the strongest and most vibrant prog album I've heard, but maybe that's the point. This album suffocates itself with delicate melodies and more heart-wrenching compositions. So, this has lots of emotion pouring out of the speakers, but I find this album to be stuffy.

All instrumentalists are skilled, but no one other than the keyboard player really stands out. The synth leads on ''Figuro di Cantone'' are the standout highlight overall, although memorable motifs appear in ''Alienazone'' and ''Gioco di Bimba''. My problem is that I've heard so much prog at this time that Le Orme's brand just blends into the prog scenery. That, or the more avant-prog bands took the fun away from this.

Don't let me party poop on your prog adventure. I say trust the rating UOMO DI PEZZA has and try it out, especially if you're more of a newcomer to this genre. It's strong on melodies, has some pop leanings and is one to give you goosebumps from the emotion. I really can't penetrate this album, probably because my brain is wired towards competely different wings of the prog halls.

Sinusoid | 2/5 |
