This is a very good first album by a Rock Progressivo Italiano band.
The description of the vocalist as sounding a bit like Aldo Tagliapietra of Le Orme is right on.

"It is a delight to see a constant flow of superb Italian progressive rock groups. This time, the spotlight is on a highly talented band from Ferrara, in northeastern Italy, called Limite Acque Sicure (Safe Water Limit or Border). Although the musicians come from various backgrounds, the style is state-of-the-art Rock Progresivo Italiano, deeply inspired by masters like Banco del Mutuo Soccorso, Le Orme and other greats.
Limite Acque Sicure’s vocalist has a magnificent voice that sounds surprisingly like Aldo Tagliapietra (Le Orme) although you can also find affinities with Banco and other top tier Italian vocalists.
The band plays lengthy suites that are masterfully orchestrated using an arsenal of captivating keyboards plus lovely flute, exquisite harp and a solid rhythm section. I have mixed feelings about the guitarist, Luca Trabanelli. When he solos and shreds, he does an outstanding job. However, sometimes he adds unnecessary hard and heavy rock riffs that add little value and interest to the music. Aside from that, Limite Acque Sicure’s epic pieces are truly excellent.
Aside from its top-notch original material, Limite Acque Sicure also performs an extraordinary version of the Banco classic ‘Il Giardino del Mago’ (from the debut album Banco del Mutuo Soccorso). “It was a great satisfaction and a great honor to perform the music of Banco, which was very stimulant for us, it represents a step towards an original musical proposal. The suite is one of the most significant songs in the entire history of progressive, and one of the most challenging to play. Not only and not so much from a technical point of view, but above all of interpretation, of atmosphere. We have tried to exalt the sense of expectation, of mystery that pervades the whole piece, facing the difficulties, even of live performance, with all the caution and respect that it is necessary and inevitable to reserve for great works of art.’”-Progressive Rock Central
