5 stars Last week went to my favorite music store to change a DVD that was damaged, to my disbelieve, the owner was unusually comprehensive and changed it without asking questions, but everything has an explanation, because the guy took this beautiful second hand package with two CD's and DVD in perfect condition that offered it to me (He knew I wouldn't resist, being that it's very hard to find in Peru).

I couldn't even ask for a discount, because the guy noticed I started to drool as soon as he showed me the package, so even when it was a bit expensive, bought it without thinking it twice, but what a better way to expend my hard earned money than a complete visual performance of Felona e Sorona (There's much more, but that would had been enough to consider my money well invested).

Of course the 2 CD's are a must own and have the merit of a better sound, but I'll focus in the amazing DVD that starts with a massive doze of Mellotron from "Il Uomo de la Luce" that reminds me of Genesis. The DVD advances song by song pleasing me more due to the extraordinary ability of the band, and surprising me the participation of Michele Bon and Andrea Bassato in a contrapuntist battle of dual keyboards.

Watching for the first time in my life a well recorded video performance of the legendary Aldo Tagliapietra singing with his double-neck guitar and Michi Dei Rossi with his usual capacity in the drums, playing 9 tracks from their 2004 CD L'Infinito, Uomo di Pezza and Collage. left me wanting to applaud.

But the central piece of the DVD is the complete performance of Felona e Sorona that simply amazed me from start to end, sadly the DVD is Stereo, but I don't care too much, because it's a unique experience that I will enjoy for a long time. If this wasn't enough, I have two LE ORME CD's in my car stereo that will make me company during the lonely couple of hours that take me to go and return from the office every day.

So, being that I got two great CD's and a unique DVD of a LE ORME concert, with such a great number of perfect songs, can't rate Live in Pennsylvania with less than 5 stars
