1 stars When Battiato released this work he was influenced by the American composer John Milton Cage, a pioneer of chance music, non- standard use of musical instruments and electronic music...

"M.lle le Gladiator" features only three instrumental tracks... The first one, "Goûtez and comparez" is a kind of fuzzy patchwork, just a long sequence of scattered sounds, bits of conversations, hints of songs and music performed by piano or VCS3, all put together with the collage technique... The last two tracks, "Canto fermo" and "Orient effect", are cuts taken from a three hours church organ improvisation session, recorded with poor means in Monreale Cathedral, near Palermo...

The overall result is very far from any kind of rock-music and the song-writing on this album is, to say the least, puzzling... Only for completionists!
