Prog Reviewer
2 stars I'm afraid that I can't share the enthusiasm of my fellow reviewers on this one (but it is not the first time). Comparing this work with some of the genuine ISP is something I wouldn't do.

Most of the songs available have little to do with the great ISP i love. They are simple in structure, at times just basis pop-rock sung in Italian ("L'Angelo", "Fantasia").

The second half of this album is definitely better and shows a more prog angle to their music. Still, the jazzy instrumental "Passaggio Di Via Arpino" is not my cup of tea. After having pressed next to avoid the weak "Fantasia", I was reaching the first very good song ("Silenzio").

To be complete, I would add that the closing number (over eight minutes) is a fine ISP song with excellent piano and fine vocals. But these two good songs aren't enough to make a good album. At least to my standards. Two stars (you can add another half one).
