5 stars The creativity of this band had no limits. New Trolls were the all-time masters blending instruments and tendencies. This album is a perfect demonstration of their abilities. It begins with Searching, a most peculiar track with a hypnotic background and an Australian aborigine didgeridoo in the background and includes a jazzy piano section, a cocktail that, believe me, you are not going to dislike. The next track, Percival, is built on a smooth picking acoustic guitar on top of which an opera singer releases a jet of voice coming as if from the background, something like the sound of an old radio in earliest Jethro Tull themes. The next In St. Peter's Day begins with a voice a la Bowie while a smooth piano hovers in the background until a powerful Crimsonian synth breaks in, fantastic, indeed. And so on and so forth. Each track brings up a surprise cocktail. To me, this is by far the best work by this marvelous Italian band, an album to keep in the front line of your Prog shelves.
