2 stars Well, I think that this album is not "progressive" at all. The early seventies magic here seem to be gone and the artistic feeling between Aldo Tagliapietra and Toni Pagliuca seem vanished too: Aldo Tagliapietra here is in charge of almost all the songwriting and Toni Pagliuca signs only one song, the weak "25 maggio 1931"... Toni Pagliuca left the band the following year because of "artistic reasons", to follow a solo career that probably would deserve more attention. The album was produced by Mario Lavezzi, but the sound is very "poppish" and quite disappointing.

Anyway, you can always find here some good songs and the peculiar voice of Aldo Tagliapietra. "Diventare" is a good track with inspired lyrics and a nice refrain; the bittersweet "Se tu sorridi brucia il mondo", "Chi sono io" (lyrics inspired by a poem of Khalil Gibran) and "Ritrovare te" are not bad, but in the whole the sound of the album is far away from the progressive-rock mood of the 70's and Le Orme seem to act here as "the heroes of a finished era", risking to "sink into a see of indifference". Definitely this is the wrong album to listen to if you're not familiar with this band (if you don't know Le Orme's music it's better begin with "Felona e Sorona" and "Antologia 1970-1980"). I can suggest it only to the die-hard fans of the band...
