Why? Why would you record/play the fabulous Camel album “ The Snow Goose” only to reprise the whole album in a lesser version (it would be hard to better the original!!) This Italian outfit obviously thought they wanna do just that!? To my mind they ought to have delivered their own original touch to this masterpiece, but no! The only original touch here are the narrative (storyteller) which they have done in Italian and in such a way that it comes across as a childrens fable. At places even doing the voice over (narrative) on top of the instrumental pieces. Again why? Talking about the musicians here, especially the guitarist, they are certainly not in the league of Camel and Andy Latimer´s original guitars really outdo by lengths, that of this Italian guitarist. The original “Snow Goose” are a holy grail to prog circuits around the world and it is up there with Floyd´s “Dark Side of The Moon” or say King Crimsons: In the Court Of The Crimson King” to name a few! Sorry guys, this is a no go from me. Even the cover art is bad!!
