3 stars This Italian progressive music is rather strange and well suited for the excellent Dario Argento's horror movies. NO progressive band sound like them! It is absolutely unique! The first side is not really progressive: it is very nervous, dynamic and scary, but I do not find it dark: that's why it is well suited for this kind of movie, in which beautiful young girls are brutally killed. There are tons of percussions (small bells among others), exotic acoustic instruments, probably mandolin, crazy & scary screams, drums, and some stunning repetitive keyboards.

The second side is really more progressive and the songs are more structured, even sometimes sounding fusion, a bit like Brand X. The keyboards, the drums and the guitars are really omnipresent here. It amazingly ends with a simple catchy piano ballad!!

The album length is short, but it is very intense.

Rating: 3.5 stars
