5 stars "Essere O Non Essere" (To Be Or Not To Be) is the second fantastic release from Italy's IL VOLO (The Flight). In the same spirit as their debut album, "Essere..." delivers intriquite instrumentation with the highest calibre musicians. "Essere..." is a little quieter that their first album and offers some scrumptious acoustic guitar / symphonic keyboard interplay. IL VOLO blend elements of PFM and Le ORME with the magic of BANCO creating some very addictive songs. Si-Wan has done a great job in transferring this digitally onto CD with enhanced sound reproduction. What makes this album such magic is the carefully tinted delicate guitar/bass/drum interplay in combination with heavy symphonic analog keyboards. IL VOLO is appeal to all fans of Italian prog rock and is in my opinion a real classic deserving a place in your collection.
