PFM, the most important Italian progressive rock band in history, developed a style which is uniquely Italian while maintaining links with the rest of the prog world. A lyrical, romantic and delicate music, full of fineness. A great melodic and instrumental richness, somptuous compositions and arrangements. The instrumentation is superb with fluid guitar, highly original synthesizer sounds, beautiful violin and flute, and ethereal vocals that are so important to the music.
Sometimes compared with the early KING CRIMSON, the group had its own musical personality, with its elegant music that propelled them to global success and popularity. In 1975 Melody Maker, the well known UK music magazine, placed them at 2nd place in “Brightest Hope” chart, where 1st place was for Camel, 3rd for Supertramp and 5th for Eagles. Recording internationally for Manticore, the Emerson, Lake&Palmer’s owned label, being produced by Pete Sinfield, the poet of King Crimson who also wrote English lyrics for them, they entered Billboard charts in 1973 with the album Photos of Ghosts that got the award in Japan as the best album of the year.
"Per Un Amico" ("Photos of Ghosts") and "L'Isola di Niente" as well as their first, "Storia di un Minuto" are all virtual classics of progressive music, obviously influenced by early King Crimson and Genesis yet sounding nothing like them.
“PFM is a testimony to the greatness of European classic and progressive rock. They have all of their old finesse, one of the finest, kindest and most talented bunch of ‘real’ musicians ever seen on stage.”
