Le Orme - Collage 1971
9.6
Prog Rock
1971, are the year in where very many groups formed, the great majority very good, another ones not as much, but what there is no doubt, is that all almost had a quality that to the day of today would be simply enviable, the quality, execution, sense of the harmony and notion of which it was being created, he was something that hardly will be repeated in the history of contemporary music, and please understanding like contemporary music the one that includes all century XX and what we took of the XXI, if we spoke of old music, will be then of Century III A.D. until the last years of Century XII, and thus it is followed, but I do not want to crush with definitions or periods of the music, that in this review do not take place, we are then going to analyze what Le ORME offered to us in that year. Collage, is one of the most interesting discs and more energetic, than this Italian grouping has recorded and I dare to say that of all its discography until the present time. This work of art that offered to us Le ORME is of its better discs and I dare to affirm from my own perspective that is the best disc of this great band, with very algid moments and minimum errors and mainly, that coming to record discs of psychedelic pop cut, change their perspective and they adapt it to the times of the best time of the Progressive rock, and they assimilate it really fast, this Magnus opus contains the best songs than they have recorded like for example “Collagé, “Cemento Armato”, “Sguardo Verse il cielo”, “ Morte di un fiore”, and that they became instantaneously in classics live tracks, still psychedelic influences notice, jazz appearances also, but rock in a very fine form, but there is no doubt that we are in front of a musical document of first level on the part of Le ORME, and authenticate monument of Progressive music, combining, all the accumulated ... -> show full review

Le Orme - Contrappunti 1974
9.5
Italian Symphonic Prog Rock
Le Orme in 1974, Release to the Market the disc titled Contrappunti, without a doubt one of more classic discs, of this Italian group that is formed by Toni Pagliuca Keyboards, Aldo Tagliapietra - voice, bass and acoustic guitar, Michi Dei Rossi - Drums and supported percussions and in this occasion by the great pianist Gian Piero Reverberi, in some songs in the production of this disc. I consider that this is one of the highest points in his discography, comparable with the Felona e Sorona and Uomo di Pezza, nevertheless, is one more a work abstruse and difficult to listen, in some parts also I believe that it contains much of the elements (embryonic even), of Le Orme 77-80, mainly in the acoustic parts, but in any case in this album it has for all the tastes of the Progressive Rock, from frontal attacks with the Hammond of Pagliuca (e.g. Contrappunti, Maggio), progressive acoustic ballads, with a romantic and delicate touch by part the skillful voice of Tagliapietra (e.g. Frutto Acerbo, La Fabricante d' Angeli), and melodies very “sui generis” for the leormenian rank (e.g. Aliante). Independently of the previous thing it is without a doubt the last great disc of the most progressive stage of Le Orme, and in some songs this is simply impressive. Even so I believe that the disc has a species of concept although he is not very apparent at first sight, but start from Aliante I feel that a musical connection with the rest of the work exists, since the harmonies are very similar in certain musical intervals, also is the last complete album of 70's with that sound so characteristic of the keyboard of Pagliuca, in the style of ELP and also in which the keyboard player takes the lead role with the prominence of these to the front of the disc; of all ways I believe that the disc in comment is one of key albums of the discography of Le Orme, less ... -> show full review

Le Orme - Felona e Sorona 1973
8.1
Prog-Related
Good album but not as good as the first 2 PFM albums i think. Quite different also in almost every aspect. More focused on heavy keybords sounds than PFM. PFM has the ablity to cross from one vein of music to another lightly, good example is their track Generale which begins as a GG like track and breaks in the middle to a part of music that could have been walking straight out of a (good) Camel song (Nimrodel from Mirage is what i'm thinking of here).

Having said this Le orme is very good and especially the 9 minutes long first track should not be missed Drumming and keybords rule here. Last song is higly acclaimed but i found this one rather boring.
