5 stars This unknown jewel came in my hands only last week. It could be descibed as the perfect crossover between italian prog and the italian folksingers ('cantautori') of the mid seventies, very verbal, leftist and at points almost nihilist. In any case, the music is compelling though not particularly virtuousitic (that's not the point, here, clearly), but the lyrics are SUPERBE, balancing between drug abuse, political revolt and class conflict, ill personal relations, and mock. Guest singers include then-to-be-fanous italian popstars like Lucio Dalla (his interpretation is really great, a sort of Francesco Di Giacomo), Ron, Teresa de Sio, Claudio Lolli (for those who know Claudio, this is very close in style and meaning)... I would put it at par if not above with other outspoken italprog gems as Biglietto per l'Inferno and Jumbo. So for those of you who speak or understand italian this is a no-miss. The curiosity remains, what happened to Emilio Lo Curcio?
