2 stars My God what a shock when I listened to this record. Five 5-stars ratings, three long compositions and an Italian band. I was really quite sure these are guarantees enough to get a real excellent record. But what I got was more or less a mish-mash of mainly very very commercial tunes with some bits and flashes of symphonic and jazz elements inbetween , sometimes becoming really good like at the end of seconda sequenza. But this short effort was cancelled immediately in Sequenza terta. Nice music, yes, but absolutely not exciting. This record stands no comparison with outputs of other Italian bands in this genre, which are mainly very good. I would call it a trial to combine the music of modern pop artists like Manu Chao with Italian symphonic prog.For me it did not work out! Still it has some quite good parts, usually at the end of the tracks but there are only three, so it's even not possible to skip the sections one does not like (at least in the mp3-version I listened). I really can't recommend this one to any lover of this sub-genre!1 star extra for the effort of the musicians!
