Prog Reviewer
4 stars Short lived one-album wonders Cervello had family connections to Osanna via Corrado Rustici, so comparisions between their sole album and the Osanna's Palepoli period may be inevitable, though there's something earthier and folkier about Melos, with its gentle pastoral passages balanced with more rowdy and rough about the edges moments, helped in particular by boisterous vocalist Gianluigi Di Franco. It's not the most consistent of albums, and at points the band seem to be meandering a little in search of their sound; in truth, they don't really seem to have hit on a coherent sound for the band yet, and I wonder whether their inability to carve out a distinct identity for themselves might have contributed a little to their disbanding in the following year. Still, it's decent enough stuff and whilst I wouldn't make it my first recommendation for a prog tour of Italy, it's worth a listen if you've already covered the basics of the Italian prog scene.
