3 stars Well, Perigeo is one of the classic and most important italian bands of this genre, along with "Area" and "Arti e Mestieri". Often regarded as the more refined, gentle and polite of the three, they produced their best known opus in 1973. Over 44 minutes of music, unusual for the italian classic scene. Nevetheless it's difficult for me to appreciate entirely their music 'cause, as you know, despite some of the most famous records, I don't know very well this genre. All I know is that this album has its moments of grandeur but is too jazzy for my personal tastes. I feel to lose any sense of direction 'cause its "simple complexity"! That' why, even after so many listenings, I hardly manage to appreciate it in the right way. So you won't read from me the usual "lobbying" for another italian band...actually, all I can say, it's that I find more easy and exciting the music of Arti e Mestieri, their "Tilt" in particular.

A refined work, worthy of special mention and to be included in any good jazz-rock fan's cd collection. Hardly a great favourite of mine, though... 3.5 stars.

So few reviews and ratings...I thought there were more jazz-rock freaks in this site...
