Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
I remembered the first Le ORME album I ever bought. It was "Ad Gloriam", an odd pick given that album isn't what you call progressive (it was psychedelic pop). The next Le ORME album I got was "Felona e Sorona", and I couldn't be more surprised how different this album sounded.
Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music.
Portugal isn't exactly what you call a prog rock hotbed, but perhaps the most surprising figure in the prog rock scene was that country's biggest pop star, and he went by the name of José CID. Yes, this was the guy who entered in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1980. Of course, by that time, the guy had little to do with prog anymore.

Where the extended, multi-sectioned songs on the debut sometimes felt like aimless jams, their counterparts on Paranoid have been given focus and direction, lending an epic drama to now-standards like “War Pigs” and “Iron Man” (which sports one of the most immediately identifiable riffs in metal history).
Trust Gianna Nannini to come up with a provocative album cover. Her big break came 30 years previously with California and its infamous portrait of the Statue of Liberty holding a vibrator in place of a torch, and on 2011's Io e Te she proudly displays her belly pregnant with her first child, at the tender age of 56 – news that sparkled a debate in Italy about a woman's proper age to conceive…
