3 stars ***1/2

The only album by this group is Hammond driven symphonic progressive. This is an Italian album that I have not completely warmed to even though some consider it a minor classic of that particular scene. It might be the ELP resemblance that puts me off a bit. I can't but think that Emerson has been an influence for the keyboardist. Even though the keyboard heavy music is good it lacks the refinement that a group like Le Orme has in their Hammond driven Collage album. The rhythm section is tight and actually the best part of this group but of course the keyboardist is skilled as well. The singer doesn't compare to the many great singers from other Italian groups. I'm rather negative but this album does actually deserve an extra half star, at least because of the powerful rhythm section. The drummer Ruggero Stefani was later also in the group Samadhi.

The most appealing tracks for me are "Io", "Vox Dei" and especially "Turba". I find the rest of the tracks good but nothing special. People who really like an organ dominated sound might appreciate this album more.

Conclusion: Not a bad album but it just doesn't compare to the many much better Italian progressive albums.
