4 stars Northern Italy's ALUSA FALLAX started playing in the early 60s, and released their only album in 1974. "Intorno Alla Mia Cattiva Educazione" sounds like something out of a strange Giancarlo Gianinni film. Your ears are instantly charmed by organ swirls, lazy French horn melodies, colorful bursts of flute, harmonized saxes, angular electric guitar, energetic drumming, and warm vocals. Side A of the original LP is a classic example of symphonic prog done with Italian style. It consists of shorter sections that are connected to form a side-long epic. Side B consists of mid-length songs based in part on themes from Side A. The music isn't on par with Side A, but most listeners will enjoy the majority of the tracks. I think most people will enjoy the musical passages, but the vocalist tends to impress some people and offend others. Their singer sounds a bit like the guy from LOCANDA DELLE FATE after a night of heavy drinking and smoking. His voice is somewhat rough, yet holds a certain charm. Overall, I recommend this CD to fans of lesser known Italian prog bands like BLOCCO MENTALE, MURPLE, and CAMPO DI MARTE. Actually, this album is a great introduction to Italy's more obscure prog bands.
