5 stars Stunning performance

Banco del Mutuo Soccorso once again climb different height in their way to immortality. This time the purpose is a movie soundtrack. Fiery vocalist Francesco Di Giacomo remains unemployed without leaving the band, but that's actually the plan for this profound instrumental album called Garofano Rosso. Once again Banco del Mutuo Soccorso proved itself as a leading band of the whole genre of progressive music.

The album is characterized of distinctive sharp keyboards, hyper-innovative songwriting and stunning musicianship and execution of the main idea's planning. Time signature and structure workings of the band are of high quality. Garofano Rosso is typical soundtrack piece of art with lots of emotional peaks and rediscovered themes all over the album.

The dimension of italian neorealism is fully described and revealed with masterful abilities here in this magnificent release. The natural sound and enormously completed playing the instruments construct Garofano Rosso as supersonic blend of symphonic/psychedelic/italian neorealism/art rock/jazz fusion/profound instrumental wonder of art. All the non-musical parts help to strengthened impression,because of their accuracy.

Another superb response to the question - which one's the most consistent prog band of the 70s. That's arguably Banco del Mutuo Soccorso. Another 5 stars record.
