“UT” is undoubtedly one of the best albums in the entire New Trolls discography.
Released in 1972, following “Concerto Grosso” and the monumental double LP “Searching for a Land,” “UT” – the antique name for the “C” music note – thoroughly explores the various facets of the Ligurian band, condensing into just over 40 minutes all the expertise and artistry accumulated in a handful of years by a band that shortly thereafter would practically dissolve.
The album ranges from hard rock to symphonic prog to mellower sounds, and has practically no weak points. Unfortunately, “UT” is also the record that marks the separation between Nico di Palo and Vittorio De Scalzi: the former would soon found Ibis, while the latter would continue on the ‘NT path’ with New Trolls Atomic System.
“UT” is nothing less than a great classic of Italian progressive rock, which has nothing to envy the international prog-rock masterpieces released in those legendary early 1970s.
