Speaking of quintessence, one should notice couples of ones on the 2 next songs: "Nothing's the Same" and "Traccia 2". How impressive! Paradise, Nirvana and genius are in this song!
But wait: the last song is one of their best: "Traccia 2": an extremely complex and symphonic masterpiece, REALLY reaching the quintessence! Beautiful, grand, complex, only made of pure keyboards and some drums! Notice the perfect passage between the 2 songs: the moog like keyboards slowing down, which give room to a poignant piano part!!! And now, unroll the red carpet: the ultimate song for the King is started: the King feels really touched by this song announcing his arrival: with a tear in his eyes, he proudly announces to his citizens: the war is over, and now let's celebrate the freedom: grape, fish, poultry, beer and wine are going to be served!
The choice of the songs of this album is a bit strange. Anyway, the best improvement to be featured here is probably during "Metamorphosis". Much longer than the original. The introduction LP long instrumental part, over thirteen minutes! Fantastic piano part which shows all the meastria of Banco to integrate classical passages into their numebers.
You know, like Keith Emerson for example It should have been a definite asset while signing for Manticore. It is the highlight on this album. Some jazzy touches, some spacey moments, some beautiful guitar notes during the final part. A grandiose piece of music. Almost fully instrumental. Franceso entering the scene at 13'08 and finishing at 14' So, this is no big deal of an English vocals, right?
The best songs of the early Banco are not featured either. Wonderful finale, with so passionate vocals. I really like Franceso. Being in Italian or in English.
This album is good, but hardly essential. Three stars. Chorale From Traccia Theme : First a bit ominous spacey atmosphere, then a lush vintage keyboards by the obviously classically trained Nocenzi brothers. L'Albero Del Pane The Bread Tree : A fluent rhythm in which Banco incorporates elements of rock, classical and folk, topped with the excellent Italian vocals by Francesco Di Giacomo, one of my favorite progrock singers.
The duo-keyboard work delivers a wide range of sounds, from sparkling Grand piano and the warm string-ensemble to powerful Hammond organ runs and fat synthesizer flights, obviously ELP inspired. The acoustic rhythm-guitar and the adventurous rhythm- section are wonderfully blended in the lush keyboard sound, the interplay is awesome!
Metamorphosis : In my opinion the final composition on side I is one of the highlights in Classic Italian Progrock, here "classical meets symphonic rock" in a very exciting and captivating way. The first parts delivers the distinctive early Banco sound with great interplay, ELP organ and synthesizers sounds and rock guitar.
Then a sumptuous church organ sound as a bridge to a long part featuring virtuosic solo Grand piano in the vein of the first ELP albumwhen the drums and bass join it culminates mighty close to "ELP goes avant-garde" before Banco returns to a carat symphonic rock atmosphere with sensational Moog synthesizer outbursts.
The music slows down to warm Grand piano runs, then spectucaluar interplay between fat Moog and sparkling Grand piano, soon Hammond and fiery electric guitar join and again we can enjoy the splendid and exciting Bacno interplay. After a bit experimental interlude with clarinet evoking the avant-garde side of King Crimson Banco delivers a breathtaking build-up and grand finale: first soaring strings, fragile electric guitar and warm piano, then a compelling climate with emotional vocals and sparkling Grand piano, culminating in an accellaration with bombastic keyboards and a propulsive rhythm-section, what a power and dynamics and how many goose bumps moments I had during this mindblowing final part!
Side 2: 4. Outside : In this track the guitarplayer is more omnipresent, he adds a 'rock element' to Banco that fits perfect with the classical sounding keyboards. In a swinging rhythm we can enjoy great interplay, Album), warm vocals, solos on guitar "rock meets jazz"Fender Rhodes electric piano jazzy and Hammond organ Emerson-oriented.
The second part starts mellow with emotional vocals, beautiful Grand piano and warm acoustic guitar, gradually the atmosphere turns into more compelling with a pleasant string-ensemble sound and strong vocals.
Leave Me Alone : This composition contains wonderful duo-classical guitarplay and the emotional voice of Francesco, halfway blended with cheerful acoustic rhythm-guitar and in the end a sparkling Moog synthesizer solo, very tastefully arranged.
Nothing's The Same : Along powerful electric guitar, here the Moog synthesizer sound with echoes of Larry Fast is very important, to me it often sounds or Banco has invited a certain JS Bach because of the very classical way of playing.
Again singer Francesco adds an extra dimension to the Banco sound, a bit more theatrical than usual but that's part of the Italian tradition! Traccia II : The final track delivers outstanding duo-keyboard work, from warm Grand piano to fat Moog synthesizer runs in a classical atmosphere, gradually turning into bombastic, a perfect goodbey!
The dual keyboards of the Nocenzi brothers take over the rest of the song to create an interesting soundscape to say the least. A nice variety of keyboards on this one as well. Fantastic track! It's uptempo to start and and so impressive instrumentally. It settles before 2 minutes with some great sounding piano melodies.
Drums go wild 4 minutes in and then piano is back leading the way as synths join in. A calm 11 minutes in. The sound is so majestic 13 minutes in as Fransesco comes in vocally. It settles after 5 minutes. This item will be shipped through the Global Shipping Program and includes international tracking.
