2 stars My reviews of Angelo Branduardi's Futuro Antico series has probably not earned me any Christmas cards from Angelo and his fans. But frankly, they are not my cup of tea and I also really struggle to find much artistic value in them.

On the fourth Futuro Antico album (out of total five... I am not purchasing the fifth one), Angelo is following the concept laid down on the three previous albums. That is some baroque instrument aka the 1600th century over some folk music standards from around Europe. Mostly Italy, I guess. Angelo's vocals is excellent and so is the instrumental work too. The quality of the songs leaves a lot to be desired. Listening to this album is like watching paint dry to be honest. It is blood vessels without blood. The music here is dull....... and commercial. But I fail to see much artistic value in this and I am therefore not amused at all.

Enough said before I am starting to count the amount of squares and circles on the wallpaper in sheer boredom.

2 stars
