4 stars If you love the contamination in RPI... Pagani is the best example.

'Mauro Pagani' is not a solo work but a band album by Mauro Pagani and other italian musicians that love the Arabic music. This is the messae by Mauro Pagani in album sleevenotes. And sure this is true.

The music is not too pure RPi but it is clear that the 1st song of this album ('Europa Minor') is a pure Area's song. But it is clear that 'Mauro Pagani' is not only 'Europa Minor'. 'Mauro Pagani' is also a possessed Teresa De Sio in 'Argiento' or Demetrio Stratos voice in 'L'albero Di Canto' (eng: 'The Singing Tree'). It is true that the Arabic influences are used for a new RPI version and experience and for this motive 'Mauro Pagani' is more in the way of Peter Gabriel contaminations that in Aktuala style way. The magic and the emotions of 'Mauro Pagani' are not in first plan but if you love RPI this album is a pure recommended album.

In my vision 'Mauro Pagani' is not comparable to PFM (Pagani's previous band) but with Area or Aktuala (this last band in improperly way).

The production and sound mix are OK and the mini LP package (BTF reissue on Italian Prog series) is extremely good.
