3 stars Definitely this is not the best album of PFM. Most of all I don't like in this work the non- sense lyrics of Gianfranco Manfredi (writer and alternative singer-songwriter), though lyrics have never been PFM strength. Second, on this album I don't like the vocals of Bernardo Lanzetti. Then, the quality of the songwriting is far under the standards of the early seventies: the band here seem to have lost inspiration and the music seem to be more "song-oriented" though the prog vein isn't completely lost yet. My favourite track is the instrumental title track; not bad also "Viene il Santo", "Se fossi cosa" and "I cavalieri del tavolo cubico", but in the whole nothing special. Anyway, you can find here some interesting ideas that will be developed the following year in the live album with the arrangements of Fabrizio De Andrč's songs.
