"Banco's second album is a real grower and is a totally amazing masterpiece of Italian prog. The album's production and music has improved over their debut, released earlier the same year as Darwin! in 1972. The synthesizers are much more present as well. The band continues on the same classically-influenced, duo keyboards from the Nocenzi brothers and the semi-operatic voice of Francesco di Giacomo. Darwin! is a concept album about evolution and the rejection of Creationism. Unlike the original LPs of their previous album and their following (Io Sono Nato Libero), which were issued in gimmick packaging, the original LP of Darwin! was issued in normal gatefold packaging. Anyway, the album opens up with "L'Evoluzione" which is totally amazing. It's the longest piece on the album, and it's stuffed with great themes and solos. Some of the passages reminds me a little of ELP, or even Gentle Giant, for that matter. The next cut, the largely instrumental "La Conquista Della Posizione Eretta" is totally stunning. The synth sound has gotta be heard to be believed, it just sounds so dramatic and big. This cut alone is what made Banco one of the greats of Italian prog. I am also reminded of "Metamorfosi" from their previous album, as it's structured similarly: as about three quarters of the cut consists of lengthy solos, then the end part ends with vocals, only I think the vocal section here works better than on "Metamorfosi". "Danza dei Grandi Rettili" is a instrumental jazzy piece, rather laid-back, sounding a little different from what I'm accustomed to from Banco. There's an amazing ballad, "750.000 Anni Fa... L'Amore" which is by far the best Banco ballad I ever heard."
