In #4 I reviewed the new reformation album by this obscure 70s group. This album was their debut in the mid-70s and is not surprisingly quite a bit different from Mappamondo. This album is a beautiful and tranquil album in the vein of the more gentle moments of Per un Amico era PFM and Celeste. Featuring a wide palate of instrumentation, each member of the quartet plays several instruments, the overall effect is a very spacey, dreamy and pastoral album. Don't expect any heavy histrionics here – this is a very nice reissue, a concept album with an equally excellent and long bonus track. A definite classic and highly recommended to the fan of the softer end of the Italian spectrum.
