Aliante - Forme Libere (2017)


The debut album from this Italian band.

Aliante is a trio with a lineup of organ, moog, mellotron, e-piano, bass and drums.
A female vocalist contributes with spoken words during the first few seconds of this album.

This is one of the albums that slip through my fingers in 2017. As it is an album from Italy, that is not good.

It is also an RPI album of some sort.... Rock Progressivo Italiano.

So it is my favourite music, then.... the RPI genre, that is.

I am no big fan of instrumental progressive rock. In particular synths and keyboards driven instrumental progressive rock. The albums that really interest me in this sub-genre of progressive rock must have some really remarkable music.

Forme Libere has not.

The music is clearly drawing inspirations from the 1970s RPI scene. The music is mostly floating around and offer up some dynamic pieces of music. There are some dissonant synths now and then.

The music is good without really being impressive. I am struggling and failing to find anything greatness on this forty-seven minutes long album.

It is a good album and just that. Good enough to check it out.
