4 stars The second album from this Italian band.

Neither this album or the other outputs from Taproban is Rock Progressivo Italiano if truth is being told. They are most definate within the Symph Prog genre. But that is splitting hairs (and in the case of the RPI team; spitting feathers) and an uneccesary debate.

Taproban's music is pretty close to Emerson, Lake & Palmer on this album. Though with a small Italian twist. I am not only referring to the Italian vocals here. But they also have a lot of Premiata Forneria Marconi in them. A blend of these two above mentioned bands and you more or less get this band. Which is both a compliment and an observation.

The music on this album is keyboards dominated. Gianlucca De Rossi's keyboards, that is. He is also the vocalist here and the vocals is great. Alessandro Papotto from Periferia Del Mondo is here as a guest saxophonist. His sax is brilliant on the main track on this album; the excellent title track. A track also dominated by lush keyboards, sax and vocals.

The rest of the tracks is also great and that makes this a great album and a great addition to anyone's collection.
