Cherry Five - Cherry Five 1976 (Flac)

Importante progetto di Claudio Simonetti che dopo il cambio di line-up diventerà la band conosciuta oggigiorno come Goblin, l'unico cd inciso, Cherry Five appunto, risale al 1974. Allora la formazione dei Cherry Five vedeva assieme a Tony Tartarini e a Carlo Bordini tre membri dei futuri Goblin, ossia il chitarrista Massimo Morante, il bassista Fabio Pignatelli e appunto il tastierista Claudio Simonetti. L'unico cd del progetto è una vera perla della scena prog rock italiana. Buon Ascolto

Grazie per questo ottimo e raro album
dominato dalle tastiere e cantato in Inglese e molto sinfonico, stile Genesis.
Grazie 1000.

Recorded in April/May, 1975, Cherry Five’s self titled album is their only release, and also is sung in English.
Cherry Five opens with “Country Grave Yard”, a bombastic symphonic rocker. Pignatelli’s bass brings to mind Chris Squire of Yes here. Also of note is the strong keyboards and guitar. While Tartarini defiantly is a good vocalist in the technical sense, it’s obvious his skills with English are not the greatest. This doesn’t really detract too much from the vocals on the album, but it is slightly humorous. Afterward, we find “The Picture of Dorian Grey”, about the novel of the same name. This track is really similar to “Country Grave Yard” as far as the production, but it overall feels more lighthearted and more melodic. The guitar riff leading into the lyrics stands up there amongst my all time favorites. If listening closely, there’s some really great drum work on this song too. Next comes “The Swan is a Murderer, Part 1”. At 4:25, it’s the shortest song on Cherry Five. Here we have a keyboard led track to the extreme, it sounds like harpsichord was used. The song builds up with lots of emotion before transitioning to a creepy voice and bell noise section and fading out.
Those “voices” kick the next side of the album of to start “The Swan is a Murderer, Part 2”. The guitar plays a larger role than the keyboard this time, and close listening will also reveal a strong bass presence. But, it’s more or less the same as part one. On a piano, “Oliver” starts a long journey. At 9:33, it’s the album’s longest track. It also moves the slowest at many parts. The tempo allows for more ethereal keyboard and bass parts. The vocals, however, are at the medium fast tempo of most of the album. The last track is “My Little Cloud Land”, which is unfortunately its weakest. The vocals here are boring, for some odd reason, occasionally monotone. The keyboards and bass are redeemable enough, however. Thanks!
