"Arbeit Macht Frei" is one of the essential Italian Prog albums.

One of the best Italian albums of all time. This masterpiece is especially due thanks to the singer's unbelievable voice, Demetrio Stratos. But even all the other band members, like the sax player and the drummer, have an excellent preparation. This is more than just a italian prog rock album: fusion, rock, influenced by many exotic types of music, especially med oriental, arab, and even some Greek music (Stratos is in fact from this country). Songs like "Luglio, Agosto, Settembre (Nero)", "Consapevolezza", and even the title track, went down in history because of their immense creativity in songwriting, and even in the lyrical point of view (All lyrics written by their producer, Frankenstein). If you want to understand italian prog, this is truly one of it's miraculous masterpieces. Enjoy!
