4 stars I heard this album described as a darker sounding LE ORME, which made me smile because I thought of LE ORME a couple of times during the spacey sections on this disc. I think that's why I like this record so much, because there is this dark, melancholic mood throughout.

"Prologo" opens with piano and spoken words. A dark atmosphere then comes in, and then it turns jazzy before 2 minutes. I just like to listen carefully to the intricate sounds that come and go during this section. Great track. "Considerazioni" is dark and spacey to open as we get a bass line. Organ after 1 1/2 minutes changes that mood. The tempo picks up. Guitar 2 1/2 minutes in makes some brief noise. It's dark again as bass and piano lead the way. It's building as drums and organ come in. Nice. Guitar is back ! Vocals 3 1/2 minutes in. Guitar then lays down some raw melodies. Another calm with bass, but it builds again 5 minutes in. "Per Un Anima" features acoustic guitar and fragile vocals throughout with some synths 1 1/2 minutes in. Good tune.

"Alla Ricerda Di Una Dimensione" features some killer organ runs. Reserved vocals before 1 1/2 minutes with spacey organ. The next couple of minutes are great. Spacey 4 minutes in before it kicks back in to end it. "Ad Un Vecchio" opens with synths, but piano and drums then lead the way. Bass and some faint guitar can be heard. Vocals 2 1/2 minutes in. Organ comes in. Nice bass. It's darker after 4 minutes and later before 6 minutes. Excellent song. "La Ballata Del Cane Infelice" features acoustic guitars with gentle vocals before a minute. This continues throughout with the odd tempo shift. "Generizioni" opens with synths before whispered vocals come in. Passionate vocals with drums are uplifting 2 1/2 minutes in. Organ comes and goes. Emotional vocals 3 1/2 minutes followed by a bombastic sound. Nice. What a moving track to end it. Great drumming and synth work 4 1/2 minutes in.

I highly recommend this record, and it really is an excellent addition to your Italian collection.
