4 stars Five years after MALIBRAN's masterpiece "Le Porte del Silenzio" (1993) they were signed to the Italian label Mellow Records and their new CD "La Cittą sul Lago" were released. This album follows the same musical direction as their two previous albums. Their music is a blend between 70's Italian progressive rock (IL BALLETTO DI BRONZO, BIBLIETTO PER L'INFERNO, CELESTE, I GIGANTI, MAXOPHONE, METAMORFOSI, MUSEO ROSENBACH, PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI, IL ROVESCIO DELLA MEDAGLIA etc.), new Italian progressive rock (IL TRONO DEI RICORDI, MARY NEWSLETTER, STANDARTE etc.) modern progressive rock (ARENA, IQ, MARILLION, PENDRAGON etc.) and JETHRO TULL. The JETHRO TULL reminiscence is much because of the nice flute playing throughout the album. The music is very varied with many rhythm changes, extended instrumental passages and big contrasts between quiet and heavier parts. They are also very skilled musicians. I love this album as much as their previous two and it's a must have in every progressive record collection. Highly recommended!
