3 stars The debut album from this Italian combo.

This album is two years old and released on LP only. Which is probably the way to go now. I have a turntable attached to a big computer through a USB contact. Good quality. Forget CDs; LPs is the future.

The sound is also pretty much like 2009. This band, whose name is too long for me, is though paying tribute to the 1970s Rock Progressivo Italiano scene on at least half of the album. This album is as the LP a game in two halves. Side A is mostly the old Rock Progressivo Italiano sound and style. Side B drags the listener over to the jazz/fusion. It seems like the band is in two minds about where they want to go. Rock Progressivo Italiano or Fusion ? Or perhaps both styles or a fusion of both styles ? This is a debut album and I hope they find the answer on a hopefully album # 2.

The overall quality is very good throughout. The vocals are great, the band know how to play their instruments and the sound is very good (even on my turntable). There is no killer tracks here though and I get a bit confused about this two faced record with the two different styles. This is a very promising, good album though. It is well worth checking out.

3.5 stars
