2 stars This is a special album in "Le Orme" discography.

Forget their flamboyant style, forget about the lush and bombastic keyboards. What you get here is some classical music, vaguely tinted with progressive elements as well as some folk influences. I am not much into these musical genres. Be it performed by "Le Orme".

There are of course some good songs like "Il Mago" which features again great and subtle vocals from Aldo Tagliapietra. Emotional as always. Still, the musical background music with these cello and Latin American sounds is not what I was expecting from this band after the very good "Storia O Leggenda" album released two years prior to this one.

I am not at all in-line with my fellow reviewers but I can't help. I just don't like this (extremely short) album too much. Some beautiful vocal harmonies are saving this album ("Pietro il Pescatore" and "Fine Di Un Viaggio") but this is not enough to my taste.

The tranquil and closing "El Gran Senser" doesn't speak to me either. Too much classical to my taste. But again, all tastes are in nature. I have to admit that I have never liked the mix between rock and classical music (the exception being the early "ELO" albums) and I am not very enthusiast about such essays.

Two stars.
