4 stars Six years of absence from studio discography and Consorzio Acqua Potabile return with a totally different line-up with only keyboardist Maurizio Venegoni remaining in his place compared witheir debut's line-up.With three keyboardists and two guitarist what we can expect is an album rich of sounds and balanced between guitar and keyboard sounds.Again the new release ''Robin Delle Stelle'' came out under the umbrella of Kaliphonia Records.

A new line-up but the same good and sensitive musicianship is the conclusion after listening to this album.Five long tracks of excellent sensitive and romantic Italian Symphonic Rock with heavy vintage influences,mainly coming from BANCO DEL MUTUO SOCCORSO's style.The new singer Maurizio Mercandino has a beautiful warm voice,ready to cover succesfully the band's music.Organ,synths and classical piano are everywhere,offering mellow passages of strong symphonic content,combining nicely with the melodies coming out of Massimo Gorlezza's and Chicco Mercandino's guitars.A range of different soundscapes covers every song,from vocal-/piano-driven acoustic parts to extensive sensitive solos and Classical- inspired light interplays.

Six years from a release to another album are too much but in this case it was definitely worthwhile.''Robin delle stelle'' is exactly the record a devoted Italian Symph Prog follower needs and every listening ends up as a beautiful experience.To be discovered by the majority of prog fans.
