5 stars "Intorno Alla Mia Cattiva Educazione" stands as a testament to the remarkable craftsmanship that characterized many bands in 1970s Italy, yet tragically, it remains a solitary relic of ALUSA FALLAX's brilliance. Their music epitomizes the essence of Mediterranean progressive rock: ambitious, melodious, and unapologetically original. Listeners will undoubtedly discern echoes of Italian prog titans such as PFM, QUELLA VECCHIA LOCANDA, and LOCANDA DELLE FATE, particularly evident in the vocalists' timbres.

Structured as a suite spanning two parts, each mirroring a side of the original LP and comprising 13 tracks, "Intorno Alla Mia Cattiva Educazione" seamlessly melds its compositions into a cohesive musical journey. The division into tracks feels inconsequential, as the album unfolds with a fluidity that captivates from start to finish. Though my Italian proficiency falls short of fully grasping the album's thematic depth, the music itself speaks volumes.

ALUSA FALLAX's sonic tapestry is marked by a blend of experimentation and homage to the finest traditions of Italian progressive rock. While perhaps not reaching the pinnacle of perfection achieved by their peers, their work exudes originality and intelligence. Complex arrangements harmonize effortlessly with simpler melodies, crafting a symphonic experience that is both cerebral and deeply gratifying to the ear.

Standout moments abound, with tracks like 'No Fatemi Caso,' 'Per Iniziare una Vita,' and ' Oggi' showcasing the band's prowess at its peak. Each composition contributes to the album's overall narrative, enriching the listener's journey through ALUSA FALLAX's musical landscape.
