4 stars This Italian progressive rock music should be a sure value for any amateur of the genre. The lead vocals sung in Italian are EXCELLENT. This record definitely has a soul: the Italian pride, emotion & spirit are truly palpable from the beginning to the end. An interesting characteristic is the mix of densely floating keyboards with vintage keyboards making melodies. A strong point that needs a certain listen is the fact that the bass always makes a pleasant melody. The tracks are quite varied, and the music has similitudes with bands like Banco (the finale of the "E verra l'uomo" track), Goblin & Il Volo (the "E verra l'uomo" track), Triumvirat (the "Una storia fiabesca" track), ELP (the Verso il sole" & "E verra l'uomo" tracks), and The Nice (the "Verso il sole" track). The clavinet part on "E verra l'uomo" is EXCELLENT. There are some complex & fast percussions of the tam-tam family, like on the "Verso il sole" track. There are some nostalgic piano with sustained notes sounding like the John Tout's piano (Renaissance), for instance on the tracks "I due amanti" and "Una stoia fiabesca". The faster piano parts are more jazzy and sound a bit like on some ELP's or Mandalaband's tracks. The many wooden percussions arrangements, for instance on "Una storia fiabesca", are impressive, reminding the Rush's "The trees" track. The drums are often VERY fast, restless and complex. The very progressive & emotional track "Il rituale notturno" is VERY fresh, catchy and pleasant for the ears.

Rating: 4.5 stars
