Premiata Forneria Marconi - Storia Di Un Minuto 1972
9.1
Prog-Related
With Impressioni di settembre this album starts out with the best italian prog track i know until now. It's really a killer but not very representative of the tracks this band would be making in the future. e Festa is also a very good track. the guitar riff here is reminiscent of Led Zeppelin(Communication break down). thx to Antennas for pointing this out.

Beginning with track 4 the band is moving to more mellow and jazzy rock. All the tracks are at least good and Carozza is very good.

Overall their sophomore effort Per un Amico seems to be in higher esteem than this one.I agree that i if you compare tracks 4-7 with Per un Amico, Per un Amico is better. It's just that the first 3 tracks here are so good that this is my favorite.

Great album, the last track definitely falls short. Generale and Per un amico are the best tracks here.
