3 stars 1978 had one year passed since the great record "Jet Lag" by the band Premiata Forneria Marconi. Passpart¨ was then the next PFM' record to come out to conquer the world. I though don't think it did. The cover is colourful and shows some men with curly hair and different expressions in their faces. At that time PFM featured Franz di Cioccio, Patric Djivas, Bernardo Lanzetti, Flavio Premoli and of course Franco Mussido and five guests: Claudio Fabi, Claudio Pascoli, George Aghedo, Roberto Colombo and Roberto Haliffi.

Passpart¨ marks a change in direction for Premiata Forneria Marconi and unfortunately, a change I am not possitive to. I was surprised by Jet Lag's jazzy touch but there is nothing of that on this one and not either sweeping symphonics. So I am quite sure this record was the way down for this marvelous band.

Still it is a good bunch of songs that makes up the record. I recognize the brave guitar and bass play here and the compositions are pleasant. I don't find any piece here boring or uninteresting. It is a sweet feeling it gives the listener when he, after all, here this PFM play and some of the songs are really good. "I cavalieri del tavolo cubico" is best as something in the instrumentation there is done is the same mood as earlier PFM. Also "Viene il santo" and "Passpart¨" are very nice items. Well, actually I think it's hard to find things to pick on here. Everything is good, it's just that it's after all obvious that a decline has been taking place. A record fans will like but not a record who'll recruit new fans. Three stars!

And one more thing: how I miss a fiddler! Their music isn't whole without a crazy fiddler.
