3 stars CAP is a band who produces vintage Italian symph from the seventies . in the nineties. All the characteristics that you might search are present on this album; but they are distilled too scarcely here.

Emotional vocals, lush keyboards, crafted melodies are at times present, still I would have liked some more guitar play, but this is more a keyboards oriented album. The shortest track lasts for about ten minutes, so epic lovers should be delighted.

The title track features some Floydian guitar to open. But ''Robin Delle Stelle'' is on the hard edge I would say. The whole hesitates between melodic and harder vocal passages. This work is fine but I am somewhat disappointed. The first two songs are lacking some truly convincing parts. They also have little consistency and change from theme too often; which leads to some confusion. Pleasant music but without guidelines.

My favourite moment of this work is ''Lontana Lucia''. It is a passionate track (mostly due Maurizio Mercandino on the lead vocals). After a short medieval interlude, some sweet piano is wrapping you and leads to the bombastic and vibrant finale. This song is my highlight from the album.

The longest track (just over eighteen minutes) ''Soli Sull'Olimpo'' also combines pastoral atmospheres, impressive vocals and fine keyboards (piano, synths), but I am not totally under influence I should say. Three stars.
