3 stars Delerium are another instrumental RPI band that feature rather well played instrumentation and inspirational jazz fusion nuances. I was quite impressed with the style the band explores.

The music is literally delirious, with fractured rhythms and sporadic drum metrical patterns. Villagio features crazy flute that would blow Ian Anderson off his one leg. There are wild time sig swings and a crawling bassline. This is very solid symphonic prog and that flute by Grice is incredible. He seems to be the anchor of the band with all his instrumental prowess enhancing the sound at every occasion.

Gioia, Disordine, Risentimento is a lengthy jamming track with strong Focus like la de da vocals. It is humourous though not a highlight for me. It settles into a nice restrained ambience complete with breathing and flute blasts. It is notable that it was recorded in a pub and even features the crowd joining in. La Mia Pazzia has actual vocals so it stands out but is still no highlight, it kind of works as a single with a pop oriented accessible sound.

Culto Disarmonico is the highlight of the album with brilliant drumming and awesome sax to carry it along. The melody is infectious and the ultra cool sax is simply astonishing, played like Jackson of VDGG.

So my opinion is Lo Scemo E Il Villaggio is worth getting for RPI connoisseurs. Not everything works but there is enough on this to justify tracking it down. 3.5 wonderful stars.
