This collection of upbeat Italian psych pop from Le Orme predates the group's first album and their eventual turn toward classically influenced prog rock. In looking, I've come across nearly nothing but negative reviews on L’Aurora Delle Orme and can't help but wonder what kind of nerdly, mouth-breathing prog-rock goons are writing them. Seriously! For my money, this stuff has the tone, timbre, and quirky pop sensibility of fun, sunny Brazillian tropicalia. Recommended!
