2 stars This album is the fruit of a reunion in 1999. Almost all the original members of the band are involved in someway in this project (precisely all but the singer Leonardo Sasso). Nevertheless the result is quite disappointing. The prog vein seem to be gone an this album is just a pop rock one with some good moments, but nothing more.

"Lucifer quotidie parat bella usto capillo / Quam ferus qui primus protulit horrendo enses / Nos ad mala nostra corde vertemus micante / Atqui homo fieri potuit homini lupus." The opener title track is sung in Latin, but don't worry. In the booklet you can find all the lyrics with the translation in English. "Lucifer has singed hair and prepares wars every day / How cruel was the one who first invented the ferocious swords / Our throbbing hearts cause our own misfortunes / Yet mankind has chosen to be a wolf against its fellow men.". "Homo homini lupus" is a quite interesting song with amazing backing vocals, mellotron, Hammond B3. Anyway the rest of the album is not so good and after the first track the music turns to melodic pop. To save only "Giro tondo" with a nice use of accordion and harmonica and with a happy rhythm, "La fine" with some nice harmony vocals and the final "Fumo" with a nice acoustic guitar part.

In the whole nothing special, just an album for collectors and melodic pop lovers.
