Disappointing end with orchestral strings leading us out. The flute-led instrumental section in third and fourth minutes employs a very Hendrix- like guitar improvisational background and, later, foreground --and it works marvellously! Most excellent! As the full band join in, the breathy flute-led song begins to sound like the theme song from the original Mission: Impossible television series--as it might be played by The Netherlands' FOCUS around Nice Hammond work is followed by a loud and dated-sounding electric guitar solo which is then followed by a surprisingly impressive and surprisingly long drum solo by Gianni Belleno.
I love the fast panning effect used near its end! Gianni finally builds back the song base to allow the rest of the band to join in for the last 45 seconds. The highs of the musician's skills on display here outweigh the distractions of poor sonic effects and engineering limitations of the day.
Electric guitar, keyboards, bass, and drums are all solid in both their ability to contribute to the whole while all are equally able to show their confident chops in the solo department as well. Where the Trolls excel is in taking all of these distinct influences and mashing them up into a whole which has a personality of its own. It is no surprise, then, that this release ended up being an important foundational document of the Italian prog scene, coming out at around the same time as Le Orme's Collage did and thus, along with that album, prompting the deluge of Italian prog that would later emerge in The album Senza Orario e Senza Bandiera is very elaborate in the arrangements and with the orchestra and all songs develop a single theme; the vision of the world in the eyes of a poet; lyrics are by "Richard Mannerini" and then pass through the hands of "Fabrizio De Andre' " Genoese folkloriaon singer-songwriter who, like a mosaic, the precise words of De Andre' assembles them by fitting them in the metric.
The music is all by "Nico Di Palo and Vittorio De Scalzi", except "Signore, io sono Irish" written by "Gian Piero Reverberi" Genoese pianist, composer, arranger, conductor, who works with the New Trolls on the arrangements and short instrumental orchestral interludes that connect the songs and is also the producer of the album with De Andre'.
But what is reflected and noted in this first New Trolls album is the formula of the arrangements and the new musical style proposed by the band in psychedelic, avant-beat territories, probably the first band to offer this kind of music in Italy in The influence of this album is not only that of the "Beatles" of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band where many English bands have been inspired for find something new and also with the following album Magical Mystery Tour always in , but there is also the influence of the "Procol Harum"Moody Blues"Vanilla Fudge" and of the "rhythm and blues", but there's a strong difference in their 'mediterranean flavor', the one that has made many Italian Prog productions unique.
Senza Orario e Senza Bandiera translated in English Without Timetable and Without Flag conscious or not is an album that open and start the new trendy music at the time and the New Trolls undoubtedly were the band that opened the streets of the Italian Progressive rock, followed and together with the band "The Trip" with their album of Between and , New Troll published several well done singles in the genre Psychedelic-Progressive with melodic Italian vibe and hard fuzz sound, the singles are collected an album released in , with the title of "New Trolls "and it's the first anthology of the New Trolls, since it contains previously unpublished tracks on albums, is unanimously considered their second studio album, it is a collection of singles from the period New trolls was a band that said something new in the rock and Progressive music and starting with Senza Orario e Senza Bandiera of , that is an album to listen several times to discover the various moments.
Three and a half stars for this album and another half star for its importance in this kind of music. So, four stars. Review by GruvanDahlman Prog Reviewer. Musically New Trolls stands in both classical elements and hard rock, creating a wonderful brew of progressive rock that spans across the universe.
Quite evident is their love of jazz and folk, which adds to the great flavor of the album. I would say, however, that the music is less challenging on this one, compared to 'UT', but ot the other hand it feels more cohesive and held together.
The good thing is that the songs are presented in a sort of uniform state, the problem is that the songs actually are similar to each other, resulting in an album of great material but nothing really stand out. There is an abundance of marvellous instrumentation on this album. The title track is an electronic sounding, pulsating thing with an overly classical reference which works great. The massive amounts of keyboards, not to mention organ, is a treat and being a fan of keyboards I cannot be anything other than amused.
There is a delicate feel to it all that is at times abruptly interrupted by outbursts of heavy rock. That is very enjoyable and one is kept on ones toes, actually. As far as individual tracks are concerned, every song is great and better. When I listen to the album I really nod my head in recognition. The music is really great in all it's jazzy progressive rock. It is wonderful. But I cannot really pick any one track out, apart from the title track. I cannot hum them.
There is exactly a flavor of the music character that they have. The line and the guitar of Bass that supports solo of the keyboard also contribute to the tune well. The melody extremely gives the listener the relief.
The part where an acoustic part was emphasized is pastoral. And, the obbligati flows with the guitar. There might be a good flow including the melody of the song.
Part of song to get on beautiful piano melody. Progress of peculiar melody and Chord of Prog Rock of Italy. The introduction of the synthesizer is also splendid. When the rhythm joins, the tune heads for the top further. Especially, guitar Solo of about five minutes and ensemble of the band will invite the listener to the crucible of the excitement.
The composition of the tune is perfect. Construction of Riff of guitar that has both intense part and peculiar part. Or, the composition used properly for the part of the voice with the anacatesthesia has originality. The tune becomes intenser and progresses. Making the sound in which psychedelic is recollected also has expanded the width of the tune. In "Paolo E Francesca", the melody of a dry guitar is a feature. The ballade that contains love makes a good, transparent feeling.
The band performed well has a good flavor. Especially, the part that duplicates the conversation by the guitar and flits in the speaker might be a good idea. The sound of the percussion instrument also contributes well for the tune.
Flow that power of expression of singing is slowly emphasized. Flow of melody of magnificent keyboard that gently wraps the song. A beautiful melody is good in the progress of Chord each other. The melody of good piano Solo and the song is extremely grand. The part of following the power of expression of the band and the music character might be exactly blocked in this tune and it appear. The composition of this album is calculated the overall and well. It is an album that offered very high-quality music in the work group of New Trolls in the 70's.
The album sees them shift to a hard rock mode for much of it, with some of it approaching Black Sabbath levels of intensity before elements of soft rock start creeping in for the two closing numbers. If that sounds bizarre, well, it is: UT is the sound of New Trolls having a serious personality crisis right in front of the listener.
Moreover, because the band goes to a more hard rock approach than previously, they're effectively evolving backwards to earlier musical styles just as other Italian prog bands are adapting the cutting edge of progressive rock to their own particular styles, with the result that whilst this album would have been revelatory coming out in , compared to the other Italian prog great releases of it seems a little behind the times.
With the passage of time, of course, this is less of an issue, and there's a lot to like about the album - it's probably my favourite Trolls release. But with the band flailing for a distinctive identity or personality which they just couldn't settle on, I fear it also represents the peak of their accomplishment, not a foundation for future success. With riffs off a Sabbath album splattered across much of the proceedings, you can sense the band is starting to fracture into two distinct factions right in front of your eyes: a heavy rock angle they are really good at this , and a more introspective classical angle the Concerto Grosso approach.
The ten minute guitar meltdown of C'e Troppa Guerra would not be out of place on the first Wolfmother album a little known hard rock classic , but at its core oozes complex Black Sabbath.
Electric Wizard fans take note. That is probably as far as some prog fans will read, but this album is way more complex than a simple 70's metal romp. Acoustic pop friendly songs, frightening orchestrations, classical keyboard exercises, guitars having a conversation literally talking in Paulo e Francesca, sprightly Italian folk melodies, slow melancholic symphonic ballads-the differences between keyboardist Maurizio Salvi and guitarist Vittorio De Scalzi could not be more prominently displayed.
Somehow it works. Reference points: Not easy. They are kind of their own self contained beast. Side one is near perfection in Italian rock that appeals to all, not just RPI fans Nato Adesso being a great example of the synthesis of the two styles , and side two is the aforementioned guitar meltdown centerpiece. This was their swan song until the semi successful reunion later on Concerto Grosso 2. NT Atomic System and?
For fans leaning towards the heavier side of RPI. But if you are an Italian prog fan and don't have this album, seek it immediately. In my childhood I used to think of New Trolls as the "Italian BeeGees", cheerfully invading the airplay with their "saccarine" based "Quella carezza della sera".
It was a shock for me listening, one tuesday night on my favourite heavy metal radio broadcast music on request on that day of the Report this review Posted by paolo. Album released in "UT". The content exists together to hard rock a symphonic work, and lacks the settlement a little in total.
However, the performance is advanced. Especially, the keyboard and the guitar are splendid. Work to which tune of various genres is thrown in.
A graceful melody a This is a good work by New Trolls. The riffs and the music generally is not the best you can expect from a progressive band, but this is also an original and energic album. The songs are full of hard rock riffs and in the case of "I Cavalieri del Lago Ontario", with classical part by guitars a You must be a forum member to post a review, please register here if you are not.
