3 stars Milk and honey's back with another good taste.

LATTE E MIELE is, at least I consider, one of the most famous Italian progressive rock bands with their wonderful works 'Passio Secundum Mattheum' and 'Papillon'. Their music style was constructed with classical keyboard sounds and graceful guitar, bass and drum sounds, by EL&P-like trio. Even on their third work 'Aquile E Scoiattoli', members had been changed remarkably but pleasantly their style was not altered. Their vectors might be always same. Exactly all songs are a little catchier than in the previous works but we have no suspicion they could keep the terrific quality. Of course, there's such a classical song as the fourth track Opera 21, based on Beethoven's No. 21. They seasoned the song with pop sense as Rick Wakeman. I suggest there's pros and cons but can't help saying that's a good catch. Aquile E Scoiattoli and Vacche Sacre are progressive and somewhat pop. Furthermore, their Italian characteristic as everyone can say (not pasta and pizza) they should have with their strict patriotism. More spacey and eccentric atmosphere is under Menestrello. Each song on (LP's) A-side is short about 5 minutes and every has its personality. On the contrary, Pavana is a great suite, with EL&P flavour. Mimmo's keyboard play can remind us Keith Emerson's lyrical play. Hmm, it's absolutely natural for us. But wait. Surely the latter half should have another suggestion. Yes, streaming and floating mellotron and guitar sounds...what a real Italian punch! Last fragile but wonderful part can lead us from noisy world toward the heaven, with delicious MILK AND HONEY...and our dream will be broken with electric sounds. :-)

Without aggressiveness and eccentricity, delicious and nutritious Italian soup, please eat.
