4 stars One of the reasons RPI attracts me so much is the endless diversity between bands. Most bands only managed one or two albums, but with each new discovery you get introduced into an entirely new sound world, often taking influences from the UK bands but molding everything into something personal and unique.

Quella Vecchia Locanda is no exception. Their debut is a prime example of the creative bliss that struck Italy in the early 70's, mixing clashing elements such as heavy prog, classical piano and violin, Jethro Tull folk flutes, Italian pop and much more into one heartfelt and passionate album. The vocals are outstanding, very emotive, both tender and full. This nation can sing! The music reminds me a bit of the Paese Dei Balocchi album, another example of that rare successful marriage between rock and classical orchestration.

With no dip anywhere in the entire album, this is yet another highly original and captivating RPI album. Looking forward to the next one!
