4 stars Not as spacey as their debut as they have replaced that with a more Rio / Avant flavour. Frank Zappa came to mind a few times in this mostly instrumental album where the horns are very prominant. HENRY COW and STORMY SIX would be the other reference points.

There are three short songs that make up the "La Sgargianza" suite.This suite is silly and Avant and I mean that in the best possible way. "I Problemi Di Ferdinando P" is so beautifully done. Organ and horns lead the way for the most part. "Moderno Ballabile" opens with drums, horns and vibraphone in a Zappa influenced tune. We get some guitar and dissonant sounds 4 minutes in. Spoken words 7 minutes in.This song is another highlight for me.

"Strativari" kind of starts and stops as vibes, keys and horns lead the way. Some melancholic flute 6 1/2 minutes in is good. This is more of a Canterbury flavoured song. "Mettiamo Il Laso" actually has some vocals, in Italian of course. Some welcomed guitar arrives after 3 minutes. Nice. Plenty of vibes,drums and horns. The vocals are back before 8 minutes, and the guitar comes back after 12 minutes. "Uccellin Del Bosco" is the most aggressive track on the album.

Not quite as good as the debut in my opinion but this is so well played and challenging.
