2 stars Wow, the last song on "Miss Baker" is a bambastic Premiata Forneria Marconi song in the style of the eighties. A funny song but a playful melody. I am talking about "Colazione a Disneyland"(7/10). It's the record's best song and a thankful ending of this record. It's a song from the thirteenth disc from this band, from 1987. The musicians who did this was Franz di Cioccio (drums and vocals), Franco Mussida (guitars and vocals), Jan Patrick Djivas(bass) and Lucio Fabbri(keyboards and violin) and Walter Calloni(drums). The cover is a typical eighties cover, fatigue and blank.

Miss Baker is the name and unfortunately the band is Premiata Forneria Marconi and the musicians have I already named. A marvelous band with splendid musicians. But what is this? The band which has done so extraordinary great rock songs such as "La Luna Nuova" which I listened to just before this, has not done a very boring and not progressive album. The thing is that I here from time to time, good work from drums, guitar and the vocals. But it feels not cohererent and it's not fitting at all. I see some played energy on every track but the fine musical glimpses are few. One of them are "Finta lettera di addio di una rock star per farsi propaganda" which I like. It's a rocky song with a bit symphonic feeling and fine violin(6/10). "Tempo tempo" is also rather decent to hear and understand that bands change and that is naturally(6/10). The title track though can't I understand at all. The rest of this record is very boring. Perhaps I would listen again and reconsider my low rating but right now I am just disappointed. This is usually one of my favourite prog bands. Listen to "Colazione a Disneyland" and if you want the two other approved songs that save this from total disaster.
