CD Reviews

Not in the first division of italian 70's prog
Cervello | 09/14/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"There are four tracks on this album. The first and last being the longest. The titletrack is the first, at 18:40. It begins in a rather heavy tone, with guitars and some flute, recalling early Jethro Tull around 1970-71. Maybe not so strange since this album was recorded in 1971. This track goes through many moods but is in my meaning not particulary outstanding. Mainly because some parts meanders on for too long, especially some minutes from the end, when the same tone keeps getting repeated over and over. It is supposed to build up to a powerful crescendo but instead ends up just being really annoying. This could certainly have been done much better. Indeed there are some nice parts in this suite, as when the themes goes over in some softer parts and some choirlike vocal harmonies sets in. Otherwise this track has some good ideas but unfortunately isn't complex or interesting enough to make it lasting. The sound is as I said, heavily influenced by bands like Jethro Tull and Gravy Train. The singer has a nice voice although many times he stretches it too much.

In the end I must say that this album is rather unsatisfaying. It could have been much better if the longer tracks had more complex themes, and not contained too many repetative and slow melodies. This goes especially for the titletrack. The rest of the album goes through the whole scale from uninspiring to interesting melodies. It has full of potential and promises, but never really takes off in a totally convincing way. So the overall rating has to be that this is not in the first division of italian symphonic rock, even though it is certainly worth a listen."
