For many this may be a less recognized title, but it should adorn everyone's cd collection. Clowns" is heavy Italian organ soaked prog with a real 70's feel to it. The songs are very well constructed and performed with the top musicanship associated with NUOVA IDEA. Once again lyrics are in Italian for those who it matters to out there in prog land. Here is a great Italian prog album that many would enjoy. NUOVA IDEA's music tends to alternate between heavy prog, where guitar and hammond compete for domination, and mellow prog typical of the period. Their keyboardist reminds me of Rick WAKEMAN, at times, when he plays Hammond.
NUOVA IDEA is a Rock Progressivo Italiano, Progressive Rock artist from Italy. In 2010 the band reconvened for a new album which can be found on this site under the moniker of "PAOLO SIANI FT. NUOVA IDEA", as the new material was composed entirely by Siani and officially released under his name. Released in 2011 the album is very good and a fitting postscript to the story of Nuova Idea. Do check out that album from Siani, hopefully there will be more to come.
