4 stars I totally agree with James' review here. This album stunned me with it's wonderful recreation of 70's Italian symponic progressive music.....but in 1989! I was completely unaware that new prog was even being made that year, and was only just starting to discover the greats of prog from Great Britain. Who would have thought that such an authentic 70's prog styled band could exist at that time? But make no mistake, Nueva Era have their own sound and approach, even though they do tend to remind of all the bands James mentions, along with dashes of Banco and PFM (though certainly not as much as the other bands James mentioned above). This was my second Nueva Era album, the first being Io e il Tempo, which is comperable, though I prefer this one. In fact, my only complaint with this band is that each album is extremely similar to the one before (except, perhaps, for the last one...but even that is easily recognizable as the same band, in spite of the lack of guitars). For me this is a good thing, but I wouldn't listen to two of their album back to back as it would be perhaps too much of the same type of thing. Although they have another admirable 70's trait.....they don't attempt to fill 70 minutes of a CD just because they can. Each album is in a comfortable 45 minute range, allowing one to fully enjoy the album without it dragging on too long. Very worthwhile for any fan of classic Italian prog.
