4 stars An excellent album of compilation by a non-mainstream band here comes!

In spite of myself, I couldn't help shouting with hearing this compilation. What an avantgarde, aggressive, and amorphous work this is! Yes, Luciano Maiozzi has such a squacked shoutin' voice style. It's no problem we say he could lead and manage the band's style and where they'd go. Don't forget this is only a compilation but has so surprising power. I suggest the reasons are that they are really skilled players and that into each song they should squeeze their force massively. Indeed the recording condition is not good (with cracking noise), but I wanna say the bad condition should be great for presenting its atmosphere.

All songs have heavyness, avantness and gentleness. First...By Bambini innocenti please drop yourself to the bottom and push yourself to the top strongly! This solemn chorus and following brass section are very impressive, and Luciano's frequently-altered voice is very terrific. With only this song we may tell 'bout OFFICINA MECCANICA. (!) Each song has its own character and strength. Absolutely all songs are NOT ON ROCK-MAINSTREAM but actively exploded enough for us to discuss and enjoy the Rock Progressivo Italiano. In Primo turno is sudden rampancy by voice and brasses, and Via non esiste has flexible, floating and unstrict flavour...etc. etc. Exotic or Oriental beginning Il viaggio di un uomo non piu uomo nella valle del tempo can have, and eccentric and amazing beats and waves... Well, as honestly I say, always feel like a mysterious kaleidoscope and a brilliant chandelier.

An Italian gem. :-)
