Nuvole Di Paglia - And Then (1993)

The one and only studio album from this Italian band. They released a live album in 1973, re-released by Mellow Records in 1992. The band split up in around 1975 and reformed with two original band members in the beginning of the 1990s. The two other original members are guest musicians on this album together with Aldo from Le Orme.

We are not particular talking Italian prog rock here. On the contrary, this is a hard rock album anno 1975. You get some Black Sabbath and a lot of the other classic UK hard rock bands here from the 1970s.

The vocals is pretty strong here and the big positive from this album. The guitars, bass and drums are so and so. Ditto for the music. A good hard rock album need good songs. There is none here. The sound is good though and if someone gave this a good re-release, it would please the resurgent hard rock scene like honey among grizzly bears. I don't think that will happen and this album will forever remain an obscurity. It is not my cup of tea either. This is a decent album and nothing more than that.
