Prog Reviewer
4 stars "Il Risveglio" is a contemporary album, but if it would has been edited in the seventies, could be a classic. Brilliant symphonic rock during, sadly, only forty minutes. Influences from GENESIS -Gabriel era-, PFM and some folk melodies, lots of vintage tics and a delight for every prog fan, especially nostalgics. Here is a brief track list description:

"Verso I Cancelli Della Memoria": A beautiful piece with lots of synths and rythmical changes, always melodic.

"Contemplazione": Plenty of surprises, it's one of those songs that take the breath away. Ten fantastic minutes (keyboards lovers: you have a party here).

"Notte Volante": Another beauty, starting with superb flute and acoustic guitar and changing from pastoral to absolutely symphonic moments.

"Il Respiro dell'Alba": Almost instrumental theme, very nice and emotive. At the end, there are some "noises" reminding a vinyl player (evoking?).

"Tentazioni": Very GENESIS inspired, adding some jazzy elements, fine and energetic.

"Maggio": Short and beautiful medieval piece.

"Indagazioni Strutturale": Another really nice medieval melody to close an excellent album.

This only COOPERATIVA DEL LATTE stuff keeps alive the best Italian tradition. Extremely recommended.
