3 stars Curious Italian singer/composer. Mario Panseri is along with Franco Battiato one of precursors for modern Italian troubadours and prog singers, like Ferro etc. The impressive Italian Prog school, firmly rooted over the centuries in great symphonic tradition has raised a refined and cultivated population that loves music above all and from which many teenagers adventure into composing complex music while in other countries they have no choice than import and reproduce whatever comes from anywhere. That makes me feel envious. This Adolescenza appears a concept album with a story behind, kind of soundtrack stuff, the tunes are mellow, smooth, with some changes of tempo and beautiful arrangements. Mixing traditional singing with prog outbursts. The music is uncomplicated, although there are quite a few changes of style in the middle of some tracks that let you know this is a carefully planned compositional work. Few instruments at a time and the lyrics well at the front, taking the most, but there is always wide space to enjoy the music. The more audible tracks for prog fans are La Tua Casa, Viccino Alla Mamma, and Il Primo Amico.
