3 stars Although being aware that the songs on their debut album don't show by far not the high quality of their masterpiece Inferno I still regard this one as a quite good and nice album of 70's italian symphonic prog.

The opener Il Sesto Giorno is starting with very nicely played flute and keyboards and it continues with Spitaleri's strong vocals and great organ and guitar play. A very much classically influenced song and a highlight of the album....E Lui Amava I Fiori has nice harpsichord in the beginning, then it develops more in a rather average rock song, background vocs remind a bit to very early URIAH HEEP, at the end again harpsichord combined with flute. Also not really special, but a very nice listen! Crepuscolo, the longest track with almost 9 minutes starts with great drumming and organ. Later on there is a very nice guitar solo. This is one of my favorite tracks on here. Next song Hiroshima starts with pastoral organ play, then the exploding bomb and vocals with harpsichord are setting in. Although being a rather catchy and poppy tune I like this one as well, since vocals and musicianship are just awesome. Maybe not the stuff to listen over and over again, after a few listens it might becoming boring. But I use to listen such kind of albums not too often and this way it's each time an enjoyable listen. Nuova Luce is a more simple song as well, although played quite well and a nice listen. The remaining two songs are the weakest ones I have to say.

As a summary the first side of their debut album is for sure much better than the rest with "Crepuscolo" and "Il Sesto Giorno" being highlights.
