The newest album by Le Orme is released in rapid and uncertain times for the band. After founder and lead singer Aldo Tagliapietra decided to leave the band, Michi Dei Rossi and Michele Bon continue as Le Orme with famous producer and bass player Fabio Trentini. To complete the new line-up, they recruited Jimmy Spitaleri as lead singer (of Metamorfosi fame), William Dotto as guitar player and Federico Gava for additional keyboards. And this album - La Via Della Seta is already prepared for accomplishment! At the meantime Aldo Tagliapietra formed a band with the intriguing name Tagliapietra Pagliuca Marton (at the same way as ABWH) with some past Le Orme members. We shall await thier plans, too, but that's another story...

What about the album La Via Della Seta? It's a beautiful album in typical Le Orme manner, with light symphonic sound and melodic, memorable songs without weak parts. It's full of short songs, but creates very pleasant atmosphere. The musicianship is great as expected and the songwriting is innovative and fresh! Generally, it's very good album without complex and exceptional parts. A light prog oriented album with beautiful moments, recommended for fans of light prog. Surely above 3,5 stars rating for me!
