4 stars From Palermo with prog!!! Italy has been "hit" by musical British influences since ever, and answers are often of high quality. A curious case is the influences of Canterbury Scene, which has produced in Italy an isolate case in '70s. I refer to PICCHIO DAL POZZO, which is without doubt one of the band of reference of Homunculus Res. For example in "Preparazione Bomba H" you can note this. Personally the real difficult in the approach to Canterbury Sound is to coordinate the use of Italian language, but In opening song "Culturismo Ballo Organizzare" seems not to exist. There are clear RPI backgrounds, but for the most part the work is surely Cantrbuaryan. Maybe the 18 tracks choice (reported to the choice of many tracks) is another reference to the Canterbury Style, chosen by other bands like HATFIELD AND THE NORTH, THE SOFT MACHINE, GONG. Sometimes, listening to this album, you can feel a little bit confused, because analogies with Canterbury bands are so much. There are in a mixture of Hatfield And The North passages with RPI backgrounds, freak resonances and Paolo Botta's estro (SKE) that makes this album worth listening to. Personally I put it in my Canterbury Scene folder. Good interpretation of a style so complex. As debut album is valuable, with so much good ideas and talented musicians that will surely produce great work in future (I expect this).

Recommended to Canterbury Scene fans. 4 Stars.
