4 stars Before beginning to write my review on the second albun of the Italian band entitled GOBLIN "Roller" - 1976, I should say that besides this I just know another albun " Fantastic "I'l Viaggio del Bagarozzo Mark" - 1978. For this reason I can only make comparisons between both. Leaving of this, I consider this albun a little less symphonic than the subsequent, where I still got to notice some influences of GENESIS. In this I consider that the band follows a more sound p / the space-prog in the line of PINK- FLOYD, ELOY. However, this presents in the second track "Snip-Snap" a jazz-rock with a strong plenty rhythm and with an keyboard timbre very close of GENTLE GIANT.Besides, in this albun there are some beautiful passages of acoustic guitar (somertimes 12 strings, sometimes 6 strings), as in the first track "Aquaman", in the track "Goblin" where, in spite of the guitar solo it is done by the electric guitar the attendance of the beginning of the music and in some intervals among the main themes s is done by the acoustic guitar. As main melodic line "Roller" presents a sound an as much as different from the traditional Italian prog. I consider this an obligatory item in any collection of progressive.I detach the tracks "Goblin", "Dr, Frankstein" My rate i 4 stars!!! "
