3 stars Well in the seventies BMS represented an important reference for me as a musician,always looking for the romantic and symphonic aspects of progressive music and considering their strong impact too... Skillful and clever musicians They are today -like in the past- but of course some works like this "Garofano Rosso", representing the simple side of their music, let me appreciate another kind of ensemble, without the excellent vocalism by Di Giacomo and lacking the incredible touch concerning some other more complex instrumental albums...I think of the symphonic work "Di Terra" and the immortal "Darwin" and their music seems to be disappointing in this simple mood, transmitted by "G.R.";instead today their approach is still communicating a sense of neverending research -within their simple popular and ethnic music format too- which is well fitted into the present days and quite appreciated also during the issue of this controversial work more suitable for that time!

I have nothing else to say... the present album is not essential but well arranged and to me that's enough!!
