Product Description

Reissue of the 1973 album from the progressive Italian rock band that is generally regarded as their best ever. This is the original Italian language version (Van Der Graaf Generator's Peter Hamill translated their lyrics into English for them and the album was re-recorded), the superior of the two versions of this monumental album.

This excellent recording is largely considered to be Le Orme's magnum opus. The trio, comprised of Aldo Tagliapietra (vocals, bass, guitar), Toni Pagliuca (organ/Mellotron, piano), and Michi Dei Rossi (drums), produced some of the best Italian progressive rock ever recorded. Influenced by Emerson, Lake & Palmer and Genesis, the band forged their own unique blend of sophisticated symphonic prog rock. Tagliapietra's vocals give the music an ethereal quality, and he actually sounds quite a bit like Sting (or the other way around). Their high level of musicianship is evident on "Sospesi Nell 'Incredibile," but the focus is more on mood, song structure, and texture. The original recording contains Italian lyrics, while Van Der Graaf Generator vocalist Peter Hammill penned English lyrics for a subsequent release. Stick with the Italian version for the full effect of this prog rock classic.

Don't need to waste words: listen to the instrumental intro for this concept album, Sospesi nell'incredibile (the first track on this record) and you'll enjoy one of the best instrumental song ever recorded by a prog band in the world. The whole album is pretty good and surely worth buying.

Words are hard to find regarding this almost flawless album. I feel in love with it in English and Italian when it was originally released and the passion has not subsided in all the intervening years. I realise that a lot of effort has gone into the remastered Italian copy and it is time and effort well spent. The packaging and new liner notes are worth buying this album alone. And just when it can't get any better, there is a decent English version of the album thrown in for free (so it seems). You can tell that the English version is from a decent vinyl but they have worked wonders on the old analogue copy.

Don't hesitate and just buy this version of this album.

Got into this band very late (about 5 years ago). It's a keyboards based band, and the singer can sing a bit.
But it's the first track that stands out. It's the drumming, interacting with the prog-rock keyboards. Great rolling, machine-gun, clattering stuff. Pity they didn't give the drummer his head on subsequent albums.
