3 stars If you would except a shorter version of "Il Tempo Della Semina which was the title track of their second album (released in 1992 but all the numbers were composed in .1974), this album is almost a live rendition of their excellent debut album "Biglietto Per L' Inferno".

The major problem is that this is boot quality. Poor one. I have lots of boots which sound far much better than this pitiful recording. I would feel ashamed if I were a member of the band. To release such a CD as an official one is robbery.

But apparently, this doesn't prevent a fellow reviewer to rate this with the masterpiece status. It is of course a statement that I can absolutely not endorse.

Just stick to their brilliant studio debut one and avoid this live album by all means. By doing so, you would just avoid the bad feeling of being fooled. On top of an infect sound quality, most of the tracks are emasculated by a third or even by half ("Confessione") of their original length.

This is just a release to be boycotted. Shame on you Biglietto.

Still, two tracks are shining : the excellent Una Strata Regina (the studio version was fantastic and at least, it is not denaturized here) and the incredibly dark L'Amico Suicida.

For these two songs, I will rate this album with three stars
