3 stars This one is very modern sounding but it doesn't come close to the amazing "La Meccanica Naturale" in my opinion.

I love the guitar intro on "Tempi Moderi" as drums rise up, slowly building as bass throbs away. The focus is on the guitar as passages are contrasted. "Snaporaz" opens with spacey sounds and some raw guitar melodies as drums come in. It then seems like we are listening to a conversation in Italian. This comes and goes throughout. Annoying to say the least. "Ninive" features steady drums as the guitar kicks in before a minute. Sax after 2 minutes. This is a good instrumental. "In Ogni Luogo" has a nice relaxing soundscape including mellotron. Violin 2 1/2 minutes in. "Coro Elettrico" has an uptempo melody with heavy drums as violin comes in. Violin and drums dominate before the guitar takes the violins place with some ripping melodies. Mellotron is featured as well. The song changes 3 1/2 minutes in to an Eastern flavour that sounds great.

"Le Citta' Indicibili" opens with acoustic guitar as flute then violin joins in. Keys and bass are added before violin becomes prominant 2 minutes in to the end. "Agli Amici Sinestetici" is my favourite song on here. Drums and guitar lead the way. I like when it lightens slightly with piano 1 1/2 minutes in and later. Aggressive guitar is back before 3 minutes.The guitar is outstanding 4 minutes in with mellotron waves a minute later. Nice. "Continuita' Dilarneltempo" features smooth sax, bass and light drums. Female vocals are not that good in my opinion. Mellotron after 2 minutes. The mood changes from a jazz flavour to a dark and heavier sound. Mellotron to end it. "Peter's House" is an uptempo track with tons of mellotron. The guitar shines as well. "Wittgenstein Mon Amour 1.12" is a mellow and restrained song to end the album.

This is a good album, but not a great one by any means.
