E.A. POE is another Italian group that tried to surf the progressive rock tide storming Italy in the mid 70's. In 1974, E.A. POE issued a single LP release named "Generazioni (Storie di Sempre)", re-issued on CD in 1991. The CD leaflet does not provide any information on the group which seems to be a four piece ensemble, drum, guitar, keyboard and bass. Wind instruments are also surfacing on some song. The record fails on musical consistency and coherence, aimless pointing to different musical genres without setting on a specific mood. Some of their songs may effortlessly be mistaken as belonging to the first BANCO DEL MUTUO SOCCORSO's records. Others have a more FLOYDesque psychedelic vein or spot a symphonic mood as PFM "Storia di un Minuto". There is some political background appearing in the text of their songs, especially in the "Intro" song declaration. The male voice is weak and cannot modulate decently.
E.A. POE should be considered a minor Italian group who produced non-seminal music. However, it's still worth the purchase if you like to make your Italian prog rock collection complete.
