The first track is the most energetic, and at 8:43 is also the longest. The drummer gets a good workout, and as the instrumentation here is tastefully sparse, he can be heard very distinctly. The singer has a very mellow and pleasant voice that would be hard not to like. The tracks all flow together well, though one could argue that the overall pace slackens a bit too much towards the middle. Still, there's little to dislike here. Simple but tasteful production values put everything in its place.
Silly observation: track 8 (All'Infuori Del Tempo) has a dominant riff/melody line that sounds nearly identical to John Williams' Star Wars main theme... five years before the movie!
My only complaint is that this is too short - only 33 or so minutes. When I hear this kind of melodic progressive rock, I wish it would go on and on.
Felona E Sorona is highly recommended to anyone who likes melodic rock, and especially those who enjoy symphonic progressive rock. You can't go wrong with this one.
This one holds up extremely well to repeated listening and the keyboards are fantastic, so are the vocals and drums. But oh those Keys!!!
Highly recommended for fans of Prog's classic era.
Le Orme is like ELP but is not bombastic and less technical. But they make up for it by having a unique style of their own, whereas with ELP you never get the feeling that they really have a style, but rather a bundle of different styles. Because of this I think some like Le Orme better. And the moods of the typical Le Orme recording is quite melancholic(is that a word?), giving a more sophisticated feel.
I laugh when other fans call works like this dated...as if it's something bad. I mean just listen to a TOOL album next year and tell me it's not the lamest thing you've ever heard. Then listen to it in 30 years--you won't stop laughing. Le Orme on the other hand has aged very well, they've done nothing they to be ashamed of, compared to what some of the things ELP or Banco have done.

Beautiful album, made even better with remastering. A classic that gets better with each listen, and fully enjoyable with zero knowledge of Italian.Published on November 10, 2013 by RB

As the other reviewers stated, this is a milestone in Italian artsy prog. As I am sure others have done, what attracted me to this lp was the cover art, typical of european prog. Read morePublished on July 22, 2011 by Larry Gill
