2 stars I have known of very few bands that made a come-back after twenty-two years of silence. On top of this, "Locanda..." only released one studio album (but what a great one !). I wouldn't name these few bands (prog or not) who have tried this chalenge but I can't think of a single great result (even not VDDG).

So, it is with curiosity that I discovered this album and I have to say that the deception was enourmous. There is nothing left from the grandeur, complexity and wonderful harmonies available on their masterpiece.

The musicianship is still great of course, but in terms of compositions there is hardly any good song featured here. Average rock music with an Italian flavour. Nothing to do with "Forse Le Lucciole...".

Even some awful songs, would you believe... "Giro Tondo", the short "Bandando" of course, but the palm definitely goes to "Plovi Barko" which sounds as an African tribal song. This is too much for me. It is almost with relief that the listener reaches the next song : "Stanotte Dio Che Cosa Fa". Nothing great, of course. A mix of prog and rock. Just average. As the syrupous ballad "Certe Cose".

Same awful African "choirs" during the pityful "Ojkitawe". What happened ??? The poor funky "Fumo" is not helping this album of course...A poor closing song.

My opinion is that this band should never have released this record. They would have remained as a brilliant band even if short-lived (one wonder band, really). Two stars. Do not even approach this.
