3 stars "Intorno alla mia Cattiva Educazione" is the only release by Italian prog group Alusa Fallax. The style of the band follows the trend of most Italian progressive artists of making complex keyboard driven music and a gentle use of woodwinds, mostly flute.

Every song flows into each other and after listening the disc from beginning to end you get the impression of having listen a single 45-minute track. Massimino Paretti does an impressive job on keyboards and the instrumental tracks are easily the best of the disc, specially "E Oggi" which features a quote from Stravinsky's "The Firebird" and this reappear on the next track "E Cosi poco quel che conosco". This is the good side of the album. The bad side is that this record has in my opinion some serious flaws. First of all, Duty Cirla's vocal delivery doesn't quite fit the material, also the vocal melody lines are far from memorable ("E Cosi poco quel che conosco" being the exception), so I can't put Cirla on the same level as Aldo Tagliapietra and Gianni Leone.

It's a pity I can't give more stars to this record due to the vocals. However the strong instrumentals and the great keyboard work are well worth the listen.

Prosciutto | 3/5 |
