2 stars Fetus is a really weird, eccentric electro-melodic prog album from the controversial / curious Franco Battiato. However this release is rather inequal, delivering honest songs and lot of academic pop types. The atmosphere is ecclectic, strangely psych and theatrical. The opening theme is a soft melodic pop poetry with stylish vocals, acoustic elements, electronic gadgets, weird synth waves. Fanatesia mixes one more time almost hypno-like electronic treatments, classical arrangements to a boring, sloppy little ballad. The album contains his good moments in the instrumental (break) section of Fanatesia with its enigmatic-electro harmonies...Mutazione is a really light song featuring gentle, naive, poppy melodies and discreet abstract loops. No surprise and not really passionate. Musically speaking there's no much distance with Albergo Intergallatico Spaziale but it's less captivating due to the omnipresence of mainstream (radiophonic) pop structure.
