4 stars Electronic prog "supergroup" formed by Mino Di Martino, Albergo Intergalattico Spaziale released in 1978 what I consider to be part of the finest albums produced in Italy. Curious, enigmatic, fractured and gorgeous, this albums features dense electronic soundscapes, including inspired analog synth excursions, classical music tendencies and off course massive "cerebral" avant gardist fantasies. "Live Pistoia" features loving spacey electronics, emotionally expressive and technically complex. The composition is punctuated by discreet, ethereal female voices. "Phasing" is a graceful, lyrical composition for voices and "dreamlike" synth chords. "Senza Titolo" features contemplative choirs, adjusted by electronic effects. A haunting, semi-acoustic song. "Tastiera solo" provides analog synth textures for a rather "fantomatic" symphonic "trip". It gives gorgeously "creepy" tones, notably taken from classical music pieces. "Improvvisazione" is a tasteful lyrical synth composition including bizarre vocalisations. "Tracce" is a sort of strange and "hypnotic" electronic exercice for repetitive patterns and crystalline pulses. The bonus track called "Hymalaya" is a totally painful melodic pop song that brings nothing to the rest. Deeply recommended for fans of "baroque" Italian prog and kosmische electronics.
