5 stars An obscure and unique piece of early prog electronic from Italy. Pretty much at the end of the early years of electronica in general, Mino di Martino began work on an album comprised of various electronic sounds and synth bars. In fact, some of the material early on this album might best be called synthprog. Seemingly taking off from a purified take on White Noise's "The Visitation", he crafted a dour record of beautiful yet bleak electronics ruminating on nuclear weapons. His wife provides some wonderful, eerie vocals throughout. In spite of at times sounding partially dull, the music proves a fantastic listen. The partially synthprog opener "Live Pistoia", and the strange, haunting "Improvvisazione", driven by unintelligible yet gripping vocals from Benedetto, are the two greatest tracks. As a whole, barely a dull moment, and the good allows listeners to forgive the rare bad. Really a neat lost piece of prog electronic and Italian music, this comes recommended, another 4.5 worthy of being rounded up rather than down.
