Foglie di Vetro - Foglie di Vetro (1996)

The so far one and only album from this Italian band.

Foglie Di Vetro is obviously fond of the 1970s RPI scene. We all are. Well, most of us. The ghosts of Banco is very heavy in their music. The music is performed with flutes, bass, drums, guitars, piano, keyboards, Italian vocals and even some saxophones.

The end result is a pretty song orientated symphonic prog album with plenty of Italian poise and elegance. Very nice melodies in the middle of the road Italian symphonic prog tradition. The band does not add anything new here and their original personality is to say at least pretty weak.

My gripes with this album is the lack of any really great tracks here. When that is said; this is a very good fifty minutes long album which gives an RPI fan like myself a lot of pleasures. Hence my verdict.

3.5 points
