4 stars For the review of this work I can't forget that is the first Area album after Demetrio Stratos death. Singers of that level are legends of the music, expecially for prog music. Anyway :'( ...

"Tic Tac" is a real jazz-fusion album, maybe nothing to do with progressive music we're celebrating on this archive. And this is the only reason why I give it only ("only" is the right word for a jazz-fusion listener) 4 stars. The musicianship is one of the best of all time, with Giulio Capiozzo on drums (the best drummer I've ever heard), Patrizio Fariselli on keys, synths and piano (simply a genius), Ares Tavolazzi on bass and double bass (a kind of italian Jaco Pastorius, with all the respect to the immense Jaco), plus Nocella (sax), Guidoboni and Biasutti (trumpets). The result is an enormous listening impact, with amazing melodies and powerful riffs, with jazz inclinations, of course. "Tic Tac" is really a masterpiece of jazz-fusion and, maybe, will not say nothing to prog-metal fans or art rock fans, but for the others will be an excellent addition to the collection. Highly recommended.
