Prog Reviewer
3 stars I wasn't really enthusiast about the debut album of this Italian band.

What's available here is much more appealing. The opener "Vilaggio", depicts a fully Tull atmosphere which heavy parts, lots of flute and some jazzy aspects. The fine ISP feel is present in the short and subtle " Tremori Antichi". Vocals are particularly well performed.

The theme around this album is craziness and you can feel this while listening to " Gioia, Disordine, Risentimento" (joy, discord, resentment): a total chaos; loose and weird music. The whole piece sounds quiete strange actually, even if the finale is somewhat more listenable (thanks to the flute play).

Some pop accent are also to be noticed on this work: "La Mia Pazzia" is a simple song with a nice melody and as usual some good fluting (but this is a major characteristic of this album).

The influence of the great Tull is very, very much present all along this album. The jazzy feel as well ("Sogno"). My favourite song is the wonderful " Dimensione Uomo" which provides a true ISP music: warm vocals, admirable mellotron and a sweet melody. I like this combination very much.

there are some excellent moments during "Lo Scemo E Il Villaggio", but the jazzy angles are too plenty for me to judge it higher than three stars. A good album indeed. But too hesistant between ISP with the great closing number " Pensiero Per Un Abbandono" and jazz : " Culto Disarmonico".
