4 stars This is the second album from the interesting Italian Roman ensemble (by excluding the live album), after their important debut-work in the vein of Banco and Arti e Mestieri-entitled "In Ogni Luogo , In ogni Tempo"-.nowadays They have partially changed route, sometimes in the direction of such a usual classic rock (listen to the first track), passing through a funky-oriented tune of the second track. Well anyway They haven't forgotten their "progressive" roots: for example you can find echoes from Banco in "Incanti e Perplessitą", thanks to the Hammond-solo of Vittorio Nocenzi, but also the virtuosic violin of Mauro Pagani (ex PFM) inside "Can Stop", with a "fusion" mood, and even the prog-jazz music genre ( a bit Perigeo-like) of "Un Borghese Piccolo, Piccolo" (without forgetting their title track in the same style.). Naturally the most interesting parts regard the severe arrangement of "Monologo" and "Io Brucio" too, where the sound of the strings creates a contamination of classical music, this time in the vein of another versatile band like Quintorigo, always from Italy; and from these latter They are learning to compose easier tunes, suitable for a bit wider crowd, not for the fans of the progressive or fusion jazz-genre the moment PFD have not reached this aim, but perhaps one day They could support Quintorigo all over Europe, trying to emulate the same fairly good commercial success!!

Another interesting work, after all!!
