This is Rick Wakeman with an Italian singer named Mario Fasciano. I was expecting some opera-like music, but this is not the case. This is light Prog with lyrics in Italian. Maybe fans of Italian Prog could get into this? The dominating instrument is piano, but there are occasional outbursts of other keyboard instruments as well as guitars at a few points. The sound is not really that of a full band, but rather a duet (which is indicated by the fact that the album is credited to Rick Wakeman And Mario Fasciano).

Rick's typical playing style is present and the vocals are alright, but it does not stand out in my opinion. This is certainly not one of Rick's best album, but also far from his worst.

Still, this is for fans only I think.
