4 stars Great modern RPI

First off, I refer you to the excellent comprehensive review of this album by Jim Russell (Finnforest). Once again, he has brought to light another marvelous gem from the fertile Italian fields. This band combines a thoroughly modern approach and infuses it with shades and temperament that recall the RPI glory days of the 1970s. Their sense of drama, intensity, and tendency toward schizophrenia (mellow passages followed by loud intensity, then back to mellow) call to mind SEMIRAMIS, although only in spirit, not in sound.

Contrasting IL BABAU to another wonderful contemporary band, IL BACIO DELLA MEDUSA, IL BABAU is much more modern in terms of minimalism--often they build on a groove, usually begun with simple bass and drums, sometimes with a strummed guitar or gentle atomspheric organ. This builds in intensity until climaxing and then returning to a calmer sound. However, although partaking of the ame RPI spirit, IL BACIO also utilizes 1970s complex compositions and instrumentation. IL BABAU prefers emphasizing the raw emotion, letting complexity and virtuosity fall by the wayside.

This is a thoroughly engaging and enjoyable work, one that deserves far more attention. This is recommended espcially to adventurous RPI fans who don't shy away from a modern approach. Strict traditionalists can probably skip this one. Four stars!
