Time travel !?

Review
Feel like turning back the clock?! Go back in time when heavy prog were very much in command and demand with plenty of Hammond organ, Mellotron, Leslie effects etc. etc. this Italian band that orginally disbanded in 1975, have resurfaced that many years later with a second album.

The great thing is, that their music is still, as indicated abowe, locked in time a la 70┬┤ties psych/rock/prog! Think : ELP- Black Sabbath - King Crimson (early period) - Birth Control all rolled into one, still with that unmistakable Italian prog influence and style !

All you can dream of regarding classic rockprog sounds, time signatures, complex themes and often heavy musical excursions are to be had on this fine release.

Founders (and brothers) Ugo and Rafaelle Ponticiello are still here in the six musician line up. I havent had the chance to hear their debut album or rather havent stumbled on it in my many years of collecting and /or searching for great and rare prog items.

I quite like this release and it will be played ever so often in my study! Meanwhile, if you nodded happily while reading my thoughts on these Italian┬┤s musicians second "journey" then I really must urge you to give them a chance !!

A musical time travel well worth your time and money..that is, if you are into said genre and mentioned bands.
