4 stars 'Zitte! Sta arrivanne 'o Mammone' is a very interesting record... but it is not Prog! Since their last releases in the 70's founder members James Senese and Franco Del Prete have listened obviously to 'Massive Attack', 'Portishead' and 'Björk' and integrated these influences into a mixture of Trip Hop,Rap and Jazz-Rock textures.The typical Napoli Centrale sound was always based on Senese's vocals in Napolitan dialect(socially engaged lyrics), which is difficult to understand even for native Italians. Senese's vocals have a very melodic quailty even if he slows down to pure recital in rap-fashion. All tracks are based on basic rhythm tracks, which serve as a background for Senese's story-telling. There are no longer instrumental passages or solos, only some short melodic textures mainly played by Senese on tenor or soprano sax which gives the whole a 'Jazz flavour'. The whole record is very groovy' my favourite track is 'Ecce Home'.

Excellent addition to any... music collection

Alucard | 4/5 |
