3 stars Claudio Milano is one talented man i'll tell you that. He sings and writes the songs for this project and he does both very well. I should mention I have a translation of the Italian lyrics to English(thanks Claudio). The vocals and piano are certainly the main focus here with an avant-garde flavour to make it even more interesting. These tracks are taken from two concerts they did in Milano back on October 25 and November 9 2007. So yes this is live music which makes it even more impressive. A couple of the guys from YUGEN are also in this project.

"Fame" is led by vocals and piano as other sounds come and go. "La Mosca Stregata" is a short instrumental that is dark as piano is played slowly throughout. "Lascia Ch'io Pianga" features melancholic vocals with piano. When the vocals stop it starts to get experimental after 2 1/2 minutes. "Malamore E La Luna" opens with piano followed by vocals which get theatrical at times. Some accordion as well. "Amante In Guerra" opens with reserved vocals and piano. His vocals are pretty powerful 3 minutes in.

"La Torre Piu Alta" is one of my favourites. Check out the bizarre vocal melodies. Some piano and synths follow. Vocals join in followed by guitar. Solo piano after 4 1/2 minutes. It kicks back in before 7 minutes. Spoken words a minute later. "Cio Che Rimane" features piano and mellow vocals that build. The tempo picks up before 2 minutes as it gets a little avant. It kicks back in before 3 minutes. "Flower Of Innocence" is another favourite. It has lots of atmosphere with piano and vocals. "Disegnando Cattedrali Di Celliule Pt II" builds with piano and vocals. Spoken words before 2 minutes. Intense after 4 1/2 minutes and it gets experimental a minute later. Spoken words follow then vocals and synths end it. "Il Ladro Di Giochi" is mostly passionate vocals and piano. There is a crazy (haha) hidden track as well.

An interesting album to say the least, and a good one too.
