5 stars What can I say but "WOW"? After such a long expectation I thought the new Banco release would have disappointed me. But.... First, audio quality is almost perfect. Second, the tracklist shows some of my Banco's favourites (except RIP, the english version, and many italian proghead will agree, can't be compared to the italian one but it's still fascinating). Third, keyboards work by Gianni and Vittorio Nocenzi makes this live an exciting experience for all prog fans. For the first time on stage, "L'albero del pane" seems to be the best track here but this live is a surprise leading to another. "La danza dei grandi rettili" shows what Banco have been and what still are (trust me, i've seen them live): a 12 minutes gig featuring a series of keyboard solos which echoes "Canto nomade per un prigioniero politico". After the classic "Non mi rompete" there's a monstrous version of "Dopo...niente p lo stesso": on this track those who never heard Banco before will find out how they became one of the best international prog group ever. The lyric shows the political thought of the band: pure poetry that stands above all thanks to the monumental voice of Francesco Di Giacomo. A long, frenetic version of "Metamorfosi" ends one of the best recording i've ever heard. I give 4 stars and an half because nothing's like the full five star album "Darwin" but, believe me, after that "nothing is the same".
