3 stars The basis of Italian progressove rock...really? :P

Immediately the songs fades into me from the windblow. From the strong windblow, softer mellotron and softer guitar sound come and bewilder us a bit, perhaps. :) No, not bewildering...whispering vocal and light guitar sound are very comfortable. 60s' psychedelic and avantgarde flavour, fuzzy and lazy keyboard and the album we can feel enough well! But trust me we can easily understand their melody and that period did RPI have such an atomosphere? Each member took lead vocal on each song, that is, there's no lead vocalist in the group. (Oh, sounds like The Beatles' style!) I can't help chucklin' with listening to this work always. Exactly this sound and style would be one of the bases of Italian progressive rock I guess. The 6th track 325 is just like New Trolls in the era of SENZA ORARIO SENZA BANDIERA. Furthermore, the last track I can, let's rock and roll! Not progressive!

Only the first track Alpha Rapha Boulevard has great progressive flavour. The other songs have exactly Italian atmosphere but not progressive, I feel. Bluesy and lazy, early 70s' comfort if you love, I should recommend this work RIGOROUSLY. ;)
