4 stars One of the records I deeply enjoy and at the same time feeling lucky for keep on discovering jewels like this on music paths around progressive, jazz and art rock. The music here is leaning more towards avant prog than canterbury's scene. The sound is similar to Zappa's Grand Wazoo or Henry Cow's Legend, but the feeling and the compositions are less "severe" and more graceful. The production is excellent leaving voices and the big number of instruments to breath and interact. I wish I could understand what the lyrics are about! I have only been advised that "Picchio dal Pozzo" can be translated as "Strike at the Well", an exrpession meaning "Strike of Fate". These signori play a complex, honest, lyrical kind of avant prog that comes out at ease. They don't show off weirdness or extreme skills. Their ideas unfold naturally in a way that you could guess that not only the were co-musicians but close friends. I would dare to say that the 16 minute long "Mettiamo Il Caso" could be concidered as a one of the "standard" songs of the canterbury genre (along with "Il Presidente" or "Pinguini" from "Camere Zimmer Rooms"). A great album for anyone who appreciates avant garde, RIO or canterbury scene. Also, recommended for progressive rockers who would like to taste something different.
