5 stars MALIBRAN's second album that has been out of print for over 5 years is now re-issued from the master-tapes by the magnificent Brazilian label Rock Symphony. This is, if possible, an even greater masterpiece than MALIBRAN's debut album "The Wood of Tales" (1990). Here you can find all the elements from the debut: the wonderful flute playing, the majestic keyboards, the nice guitar work and the saxophone, an instrument not often heard in progressive rock. MALIBRAN has a great 70's symphonic sound with reminiscences to other great Italian bands such as IL BALLETTO DI BRONZO, BIGLIETTO PER L'INFERNO, CELESTE, FINISTERRE, I GIGANTI, MARY NEWSLETTER, MAXOPHONE, METAMORFOSI, MUSEO ROSENBACH, PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI, IL ROVESCIO DELLA MEDAGLIA and STANDARTE. The title track is a 27 minutes classic masterpiece. This album is perhaps the best Italian album in the 90's along with MARY NEWSLETTER's album "Nuove Lettere" (1996) and STANDARTE's album "Stimmung" (1998). I love Italian symphonic and progressive rock, and Rock Symphony have done a cultural charitable by re-releasing MALIBRAN's two first albums. Thank you for the music! I hope I'll get to hear their latest 1998 release "La Cittą sul Lago" too. Highly recommended!
