Curva Di Lesmo. La - La Curva Di Lesmo (2015)

The one and only album from this Italian band.

The band is a duo of Stefano Agnini (keyboards) and Fabio Zuffanti (bass).

They had help from numerous other musicians from the RPI scene who provided drums, percussion, guitars, bass, violin, accordion, flute, piano and vocals.

The living legend Fabio Zuffanti has taken part in around ten bands during his time in the RPI scene and is one of the most productive guys in the scene. A living legend, no less.

La Curva Di Lesmo is his project who splits a lot of opinions. 

These fifty-two minutes is divided on the opening song who clocks in at eight minutes, the second song who clocks in at eighteen minutes and the final song who clocks in at twenty-six minutes. 

The music is a mix of........... well, it is RPI looking back to the 1970s. That means folk rock combined with symphonic prog and some Italian pop. Add some female gothic vocals to the mix too.

The result falls well short of expectations. 

The music is pretty dull and only offers some decent melodies and details. The compositions is simply not good enough and parts of the album falls flat on it's face.

It is a decent enough album but that is all. RPI fans should check out this album.
