4 stars Like stated in another review, this is an album of re-recordings of Le Orme classical album tracks, made by the actual (as in 1997) line up of the band. But moving apart from that review, I find this album very satisfying and interesting. Here you have almost a "best of" (exception made for Felona e Sorona, with no track of that album in here) but with the addition of new arrangements and interpretation, so it's interesting even to the ones that already have the original records.

I can't complain about the sound, maybe because I'm from the neo-prog generation, even found some of the songs here better sounding than the original ones. For instance, "India" has a more richer instrumentation than in the "Contrappunti" album. Highlights for me are the versions of "Gioco di Bimba", "Cemento Armato", "India" and "La Porta Chiusa".

Previously to this one I only had Felona e Sorona, and this album made me investigate the rest of their discography. Very recommended to Le Orme newcomers!!
