Corte Dei Miracoli - Dimensione Onirica (1992)
The second and final album from this Italian band.
The band was a quintet on this album with a lineup of guitars, bass, Hammond organ, drums, synths and Italian vocals on this album.
This album is actually old demos from 1973-74 cobbled together by Mellow Records into an album. It is demos made before their one and only studio album was recorded and released in 1976. You can read my review of that album on this link.
I should not really have reviewed this album at all as this is old demos. But I liked their one and only proper album and decided to have a go at this album.
This album is well over one hour long and it has some pretty bad sound. Bad but not bad enough to notice that the music is somewhere between Banco and ELP here.
The music is pretty powerful and unrestrained throughout these demos. There is also some more pastoral parts. The music is pretty much run of the mill Italian progressive rock. Not outstanding and not great. Just pretty average.
The bad sound does not make this a great or even a good album. It is a decent enough album but nothing more than that. Spend your money more wisely than on this album.
