2 stars Despite I am Italian, I have to admit that Italian bands in the seventies didn't understand properly what to do with electronic instruments and a real Italian Electronic scene never formed. Battiato or some songs by Le Orme could be good exceptions (ok, Battiato IS a real exception), but people like Sangiuliano or this Albergo Intergalattico Spaziale sounded very, very old and surpassed even at their debut. When this project published this album people like Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Kraftwerk, Jean Michel Jarre and Brian Eno had already pushed the electronic edge much forward. Here you can find only phased farfisa organs, few real electronics and some abused ideas (Beethoven's Hymn to Joy with oriental sounding words... veeeeeery trashy). Thanks god you can listen to Terra di Benedetto's beautiful voice and finally you find Hymalaya, IMO the only really good track in this bunch (by the way: it is a bonus, as it was out of the original vynil track list). Believe when I say that the cult tributed to this work has mainly to do with its rareness than with its real value.
