From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars Second album of this group, official executor of musics of the disc "Anima Latina" of Lucio Battisti (printed from the NumeroUno label and the text of "Essere" is signed from Mogol).

The sound is an incredible crossing between progressive, jazz and fusion, very rarely complex but never banal: the sound is always rich and beautiful full load: the imposing use of fender Rhodes, Synth/Strings and guitars filtered with strange effects (counting the presence of Alberto Radius and Vince Tempera...) renders most pleasant listens. Only sung song is, like saying over, "Essere" . Also in "Gente in amore " and "Canto di lavoro" vocal is present that emphasizes the musical context.Beautiful the dum,sure one of the more interesting things of the disc.

Unfortunately the duration is short: 30 minu.

One of best discs of the Italian school.

To have absolutely.
