But the first three albums are loved by almost everyone. The best way to describe the first album, La Storia di un Minuto, in my opinion, is that it is just a very fun album to listen to. It also contains some downright classic melodies and phenomenal playing. Apart from the opening intro and the closer “Grazie Davvero,” all of the songs are still performed regularly by the group today, and “Impressioni di Settembre” is something like “Stairway to Heaven” in Italy, with “E’ Festa” not far behind. They manage to make complicated music that would appeal to almost everyone, and they do it probably better than anyone else ever has.

Masterpiece, italian progressive rock. Sounds like they have been a bit influenced by all british progacts there is. Makes me kinda think of jethro tull sometimes. But the sound is truly unique and of it's own.
