3 stars In Ogni Luogo (In Everywhere) is dedicated to the spirit of Jeff Buckley.

I have to say that the album is good (sometimes very good) but it did not impress me as I presumed. Dont' get me wrong: not a disappointment, but the general progressiveness of the opus appears, clearly, in a lower profile.

Some pleasant melodic symphonic tracks are still present, though, and I enjoyed them very much! As for the warm and melancholic "Snąporaz" (6,41 mns) that deserves a special mention due to the addition of spoken words from the famous italian movie by Federico Fellini "La Dolce Vita" ("...Marcello, come here..." et cetera). A dreamy and ethereal electric guitar builds up a magical atmosphere that mixes perfectly with the keyboards' section. The instrumental "Ninive" (the ancient capital of the Assirian empire) is also very good but, unfortunately, too short (just below the four minutes). An excellent track for sure and the sax is the icing on the cake.

"In Ogni Luogo" features vocals from Francesca Lago, a melodic pop tune as many in the contemporary italian musical scene only enriched by sparse strings' addition in the final part. Similar weak sound in "Continuitą dilara nel Tempo" and in the album's closer "Wittgenstein Mon Amour".

"Coro Elettrico" is much more interesting. Strings duet with electric guitar and it's all very exciting. A more harder intrumental song that fades into a more serious and melodic mood. "Le Cittą Indicibili" opens with a soft duo between acoustic guitar and flute and then, keyboards and violin.

"Gli Amici Sinestetici" is probably the most favourite of mine. The general mood is melancholic as the whole album is. A sad (and hard) electric guitar opens and, soon, duets with mellow piano's touches. Then, again, guitar takes the scene and reminds me of Il Castello di Atlante. Another highlight is "Peter's House", a very good track with the catching sound of electric guitar fighting with sax incursions.

All in all, a very good album, as I said before. Not brilliant as it could be. Lots of ideas not completely well matured. Zuffanti seems, sometimes, to be too much prolific!!

A pleasant listening, though.
