4 stars 'The Fantastic Voyage Of Beetle Mark'... A great album penalized by volal parts.

'Il Fantastico Viaggio Del Bagarozzo Mark' is Goblin's 4th studio album and the only Goblin's album with lyrics. Lyrics that ruins (also if not always) a very good album. The first track ('Il Bagarozzo Mark' [eng: 'Beetle Mark'] remember me Rustichelli & Bordini also for vocal style. For the rest Keith Emerson is too present in Claudio Simonetti's keyboards style and this fact is good for the pathos that creates. Also the guitar and drums are very good.

Incredible song is 'Le Cascate Di Viridiana' (eng: 'Viridiana's Falls') a perfect Goblin's song. It is noticeable also '...E Suono Rock' (eng: 'And I Play Rock) that is a good Proto Prog Metal song.

In first plan is the fact that the insertion of lyrics at first impact are not good but because lyrics are not common in Goblin's music. Once treated Goblin with lyrics here that the impasse is overcome.

So 'Il Fanastico Viaggio Del Bagarozzo Mark' is a good album, penalizes by vocal parts (not always), very well aged. Not a masterpiece but a great example of the more true and sincere RPI.

1967/ 1976 | 4/5 |
