5 stars From the first and best track of this release "Nesia al notturno congresso delle streghe", we are in known territory of the great big bands of Progressive Rock. After some hunting keyboard lines in the atmosphere and sound of Anglagard, we go in a almost copy of a passage from Genesis "Cinema Sow". The band plays some long instrumental sections with multiple breaks going from heavy to soft moments. The second song "Lo sguardo di Emily" is more in the tradition of the Italian bands from the past. Despite this numerous movements in the 3 songs, the melody flows naturally with all his beautiful tones that will seduce all the keyboards lovers. Overall, the sound is reminiscent of ELP and Ars Nova. This is 40 minutes of excellence, not a single boring moment, let's take that trip back to the 70's with that bass pedals sound and those nice melodies.
