3 stars The new Wicked Minds album is a hommage to the 1970s Rock Progressivo Italiano scene and not really a proper studio album. The basis of this album is the Wicked Minds musicans. The vocals and some other parts has been done mostly by the original vocalists. Sophya Baccini and Stefano Lupo Galifi is very much present here. The latter one does the vocals on Museo Rosenbach's classic Zarathustra. I am though not that much into who played and did the vocals where and for whom. So I leave the minute details to the dedicated Rock Progressivo Italiano followers out here.

Neither am I a big fan of concepts like this. Yes, this scene deserves a tribute or two. But not by re-recording the old songs and inviting in vocalists on each tracks. The songs, although they are great, feels a bit unnatural in their new settings. I prefer the originals. Hence I am restrained in my joy.

This is a very good tribute album though with some great music. I am sure the dedicated Rock Progressivo Italiano fans will find this album more interesting than I do.
