La vita che cade (2011, 68-minutes, digipack) continues the string of great albums made this century by the Italian band Doracor. The music is again a mix of Genesis, romantic Italian prog, and IQ-style neo-prog, with melodic sax a nice touch on several songs. The Genesis influence is not retro or copyist as with The Watch but rather takes off from the Wind and Wuthering period, using vintage keyboard sounds but not ignoring more modern instruments, not trying to sound like a tribute band. The classic Italian prog comes in mostly via the warm Italian vocals. This is a superb, well-crafted album: majestic, romantic, and stirring. You can find several songs on YouTube, start here.
