3 stars In my opinion the best Banco album from the 80's.

Yes, the sound changed according to that time fashion. No improvisations, no long epics, in general no prog here. But songs are nice and memorable, Di Giacomo's voice is strong as ever. The only more or less prog song here is ''Moby Dick'', it stood the test of time and the band often plays it in concerts till now. Best album's track.

My other favourites are ''Lontano Da'', ''PioverÓ'' and ''Allons Enfants'', though I can't tell other songs are bad. Enjoyable record, I listen to it more often than to some BANCO's works from the 70's.

Anyway, this album helped the band to survive in hard years for prog. Perhaps not essential, but pleasant. 3 stars.
