5 stars The establishment of the music that derived from Canterbury had the flow that indeed stuck to various regions in the world. The flow of the music character that derived in the especially 70's gives the impression that spread almost at a simultaneous period.

Deriving at almost the same time when thinking as time when the derivation of the original music character sent from Canterbury announces the work and having been announced might be the points that should make a special mention. And, the music character that had been digested to each country might have been digested while taking the culture and the root that the country indeed had.

The part of the sense and the sensibility in addition to the construction of the idea with the original theory might have acted on the music character that derived from Canterbury for the 70's, too. A lot of bands that the composition and the directionality of the tune looked like existed. However, the work of the band that absorbed it respectively considerately might have offered an original work that was as a result. These music characters where a pastoral element in addition to the humour was had both might have succeeded as establishment of indeed one.

The music character that this Picchio Dal Pozzo constructs aiming as a band that influences it from the music character sent from Canterbury that derives to the world might show the directionality very remarkably. The content of the work that is reminiscent of the consistent music character of the work and directionality that risked and Canterbury had shot might be indeed valuable. In the part, Picchio Dal Pozzo is 1972 already. Or, it can be considered that it was formed in 1973 for a fact.

Picchio Dal Pozzo was formed in Genova in Italy. Aldo De Scalzi of the member of this band is famous as the younger brother of Vittorio Di Scalzi. Of course, being known as a member of New Trolls is a well-known fact in Vittorio Di Scalzi. And, this band announced the album from "Grog" that Vittorio Di Scalzi had established. The band with high qualities such as Celeste and Corte Dei Miracoli was offered though the Grog label stopped acting in the short span of time. Time was necessary by the time the upcoming album was announced because the activity of the Grog label had stopped after they had announced this debut album. And, after announcing this album, Giorgio Karaghiosoff of one person of the member of the band has left the band. Having appointed it as a guest of a lot of musicians in addition to the member of the band in the album it has acted as a good direction. Point to have appointed member of Celeste of the same label. And, zeal to construct the content of "Camere Zimmer Rooms" for the period until they announce 2nd album. The music character at which they had been aiming and directionality might have been established with an original theory already.

"Merta" puts out atmosphere with a good melody of the glockenspiel and the guitar. It shifts to the part of a good chorus while mixing the rhythm of 7 and 9 with eight rhythms. Making the sound that the keyboard is distorted and the anacatesthesia of the wind instrument might be splendid.

"Cocomelastico" is taken a legato rhythm of cymbals of four rhythms and progresses. The melody with the wind instrument is completely reminiscent of a good part in Canterbury. Melody and transparent feeling that flows slowly. And, the obbligati of a glossy keyboard. Solo of the song and the keyboard also contributes well.

"Seppia" is a tune composed by the part of three. The sound of the band that attempts the construction of slightness from the keyboard that plays the melody of six notes progresses in union. It shifts from the introductory part that produces a transparent feeling to the part of a completely heavy melody. Xylophone that Ciro Perrino plays. Collage of enchantment melody and voice. Part in space that keyboard produces. The band has an oneness. When six minutes are passed, the tune shows suddenly different respect. The construction of the melody that the xylophone and the flute make expands the width of the tune. Coming in succession of the sound produces a good part. And, it advances from child's narration further attended with a chorus and a pastoral melody. Especially, the chorus's construction is complete.

"Bofonchia" has the part of the connection as the entire flow of the album. The flute twines with the part of the keyboard that invites confusion from the melody that the guitar makes.

"Napier" is succeeded from the construction of two or more melodies with the flute to the part of the tohubohu by the rhythm and the melody of two rhythms. The tune flows chaotically. Part of piano and Sax as it is. And, the flute and the keyboard pull the tune. The melody that twines round the complexity accompanies the song that completely produces the anacatesthesia. The melody of the song suddenly receives the complete top. There might exactly be one impression. The band is integral.

The song and the melody of "La Floricultura Di Tschincinnata" that is reminiscent of the part of Hatfields are impressive. Melody, song, and chorus of glockenspiel. This anacatesthesia and a transparent feeling are perfect. And, it is the chorus chaotic partial. Sound of keyboard in close relation to it. The tune increases a transparent feeling further. And, it reaches the peak by the melody of the keyboard and Sax.

Beautiful piano Chord and a good scat put out atmosphere to "La Bolla". A transparent feeling and the anacatesthesia are complete. Part where voice of Robert Wyatt is reminiscent. And, the melody of glossy Sax. Sound that flows in space. The composition is complete. The guitar also ..good part.. contributes.

"Off" might have decided the flow as an extension of the width of the content of this album and a good composition. Melody moving with piano and flute. Pastoral element. The melody of the scat and the progress of Chord are moving.

Their of this debut albums might have splendidly digested a good part in Canterbury in various bands with the atmosphere of Canterbury. It is very a beautiful music. It is music that it wants you to be going to keep being being loved in the future.
