The album dominated by the Classical-inpired
Progressive Rock of the early years along with
diverse folky vibes, this time including a bit of
Celtic influences in a pair of tracks.
The instrumental tracks or breaks are very good,
Giordanino offering some incredible work through
long synth runs, delicate organ themes and
impressive piano interludes of a Classical nature.
The sound of the group remains more or less
keyboard-oriented with the solid support of bass
and drums, although there are moments with a
richer sound as proposed by the presence of
Cristiani's magnificent flute parts or the nice
electric bursts of Mauro Cavagliato or guest
participant Danilo Ghiglieri.
The folky influences are either delivered by the
flute or harmonica drives or through the related
inspiration on Giordanino's keyboards.
The vocal moments of the album are definitely
along the lines of Classic Italian Prog with a
romantic flavor as offered by bands such as
SITHONIA or IL CASTELLO DI ATLANTE
Forget about the more commercial side of
Zauber.''Profondo blu'' is up there with the
old stuff of the group, a nice mix of Symphonic
and Folk Rock in an Italian way with a
very good instrumental comfort.
