1967/ 1976
3 stars Probably "Novella" is more a Folk prog album that other. But my perception is also that "Novella" isn't a Prog album, but a POP album with some Folk moments with Prog treatment of songs because with big structure and various times and atmospheres changes. In this sense this album is also Prog but in my opinion the more Prog tracks are "Touching Once (Is So Hard To Keep)", "Midas Man" and "Can You Hear Me" (in order of revelance). The music is, in this album, too similar to Yes and this fact is not good with the acoustic and orchestral sound of Renaissance.

But "Novella" remain a great album, in order to music. With good atmospheres (also if too light).

1967/ 1976 | 3/5 |
