4 stars At least I found this album wonderful! The 80's aestethics work as basis for a strange adventures in polyrhythmics and methodical chaos. For me the album's music is full of mystery, and it listening to it creates a very strong sense of wonder. The best tracks are the opener (which verse I believe refers to the beat writers), hypnotic instrumental "Sartori in Tangier", emotionally deep "Waiting Man" which is probably the best track here, "Neurotica" which studies the straits of "Indiscipline" and the haunting ballad "Two Hands". The others songs are good as well, and I would recommend this to any listener with open ears.
