3.0 out of 5 stars Prog beginnings. January 3, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This recording marked Le Orme's entry into the world of prog-rock. Where they had recorded prior to this they tended to be more pop or psychedelia rooted. This is a less refined effort than subsequent efforts but a good one none the less. Cemento Armanti cleverly borrows the melody line from Aqualung. Solos can get a little lost on occassion but overall the playing is solid. Primarily an organ trio on this date, they would more fully develop there sound later on. This one is still worth obtaining but you'd be better off starting with Felona e Sorona, Uomo di Pezza and Contrapunti...Simon

5.0 out of 5 stars This album is truly underrated December 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Le Orme is an example of a band drastically changing their sound, this time for the better. A good comparison would be Genesis with From Genesis to Revelation, which was basically psychedelic pop, and Trespass, which was their first truly progressive album. Likewise with Le Orme. In 1969 they released Ad Gloriam, which was psychedelic pop, and then in 1971 they followed it with Collage, which was their first truly progressive album (although the album Orme released in '70, L'aurora Della Orme was basically a collection of early recordings, stretching as far back as 1967). Both Genesis and Le Orme knew that psychedelic pop was reaching a dead end and thanks to King Crimson releasing In the Court of the Crimson King, and a year later, ELP with their debut, it was time to move on to prog rock. With Le Orme's case, the band switched from a label called Car Juke Box, to Philips, with two band members leaving, Claudio Galieti and Nino Smeraldi, leaving the band down to a three piece, with bassist/guitarist/vocalist Aldo Tagliapietra, keyboardist Toni Pagliuca, and drummer Michi dei Rossi. The result is being Collage, an often unjustly underrated album. This album is not as highly regarded as their next three albums, Uomo di Pezza, Felona e Sorona, and Contrappunti, which I can't figure out why. This album is more aggressive and unpolished than what's typical from them. The album has a live "in the studio" feel, making me think some of this was recorded in one take (although the album did take about four weeks to complete, recorded from May 17 to June 3, 1971 according to the album liner notes). The title track is an instrumental piece that makes me think of The Nice, although there's some classical themes played on a clavinet. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Raw but deligthful! March 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
As i am listening to this after more than 15 years of not playing this Lp (i have the vinyl edition) i would like to say that this is still pretty good if you love 70's prog rock. I am sure the other works that followed Collage are great too as many reviewers have stated, but this has a nice , raw appeal. And even though many have said this is only drums, keys and bass there are a couple of nice tracks which include 'orchestral' arrangement.There is also some guitar here and there. But is the melodies that of course grab you after a few spins . Very nice surprise after not really giving them much thought over the years. Looking foward to listening to the other 3 cds that followed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional rock meets classical music CD October 28, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Do you want to listen to a XX Century Domenico Scarlatti? You just have to dive into one of the greatest progressive bands of all times. Begin with "Collage", their first masterpiece, and keep going on. Avoid "Smogmagica".

This is one of the greatest album of 70's progressive rock. This is really good chance to develop your pop music knowledge. They were one of the best Italian band ever with P.F.M., Osana, New Trolls and Latte E Miele.
