4 stars The collapse of the Grog label might be advanced for them with a few groping and conversions of directionality in the music character of the band. However, construction and consistent directionality of the music character that they had had kept had been expressed as an element always involved and might have been opened.

There was a name of Robert Wyatt, Henry Cow, and Frank Zappa in the name enumerated as a musician from whom they had been influenced. Construction of music with of course high quality that they had listener listen with 1st Album. And, the element that completely absorbs good atmosphere that derives from Canterbury. Those flows might already have been established.

However, years of about four years were necessary by the time they announced this album. And, the music character that they had in the years develops further. The extension of the width of the music that had been done in 1st album was uniting of the idea indeed absorbed. They guess that they had gone aggressively in live after announcing 1st album. The performance that spends between 1977 and 1978 and is done though it is a collapse of the belonging label is announced as "Camere Zimmer Rooms". This sound source uses the sound source of the performance done in Genova in Italy. The base of the activity might not have been wide at all. However, it might be certain that they always provided with the advancement of individuality and the technology from the part of a consistent music character further.

When 1st album is compared with the content of this album, they are the parts where various elements in addition to a part developed music were absorbed and the parts of a few avant-gardes. And, there might be a certain kind of refinement and construction as a collective impression. Flow that is reminiscent of part of Henry Cow and Frank Zappa in addition to atmosphere of good Canterbury offered with 1st album. And, there might have been an influence such as Stormy Six of the same label , considering the fact that this album is announced from "L'Orchestra", too. The band is producing this album newly adding three musicians. And, Aldo De Scalzi has shifted to New Trolls after the activity of this band. And, it participated in the tour of Anna Oxa.

"La Sgargianza Parte 1" is a song and a voice with a collage by the sound of the percussion instrument and the decoration and mysterious melodies. And, a few avant-gardes are uniting with the atmosphere of good Canterbury.

As for "I Problemi Di Ferdinando P.", the melody of Sax and the keyboard with the anacatesthesia unites well. Progress of Chord that composes mysterious harmony. The composition in which the part of the chamber orchestra is added to the atmosphere of 1st album expresses a good flow. Coming in succession of sound by Sax. And, the construction of the melody with complete ensemble flows in the space. The composition of a simple sound in which the decoration of the extra is excluded has decided the impression of this album.

"La Sgargianza Parte 2" is a melody of the song processed by the effect. Part of song intermittently constructed. And, the atmosphere of the avant-garde who rules the whole. The album advances. The part of the connection is made for the album to act.

"Mederno Ballabile" crosswires the melody of the keyboard and Sax and progresses. The progress of the melody and Chord might be completely influenced by Frank Zappa. The rhythm in close relation to the complexity and the construction of the melody are splendid. The technology of the performance might be also very high.

As for "La Sgargianza Parte 3 e 4", the melody and the avant-garde of a mysterious song rule the whole. However, the sound is refined. The direction is an idea consistently for them and music.

"Strativari" starts continuously about the collage of the sound of the decoration. It has the melody that is reminiscent of the part of Frank Zappa. Intermittent construction of the rhythm and the flood of the sound will not be able to be achieved if there are neither a high technology nor an idea. Melody with charm by Sax. Refined rhythm. However, the part in good Chord and the space that appears everywhere also contributes well. And, the flood of the sound launched from a transparent feeling with the flute and the part of the tension one after another might be exactly a part by their one established ideas.

"Mettiamo L Caso Che Parte 2" starts by the melody of a perfect song. Pastoral song in close relation to acoustic melody. And, the melody of "Napier" collected to 1st album appears. The melody that the idea that reversely plays the tape twines and gentle Sax and the keyboard are good is made. The vibraphone twines very well for the tune, too. The rhythm twines gradually. Atmosphere is reminiscent of the part of Hatfields and National Health. And, the melody of "Napier" appears again. The arrangement and the restructuring of the melody might be splendid. The tune advances while keeping chaotic. The composition and the melody of a complex rhythm make a good flow. And, the melody of "La Floricultura Di Tschincinnata" of one furtherst album appears. The song and the melody are refined and the part of fine quality is maintained. The atmosphere of the chamber orchestra that rules the whole might be splendid. And, the melody of the chorus of "La Bolla" of one furtherst album appears. It is a composition that was able to be improved very much. The tune continues atmosphere as it is.

"Uccallin Del Bosco" advances with the rhythm of three rhythms. The melody has the humour very much. And, it is partial of advanced intense on the way Rock. Or, the melody that continues the humour. The melody of Sax also contributes to the tune.

The part of a good quality to which their 1st albums were involved might have been refined further with this album.
