2 stars Well, this album it's pop... and not so good. Certainly not at the level of the the more complex "Sacrificio". It's very simple in songs' structure, naif at times (listen to the opener to believe) as the most part of the discography of this band, usually considered the most important beat band in Italy.

Only interesting exceptions are on the B-side: "Dr. Jekill", above all, an instrumental nice jazzy piece with good keyboards and sax. "Signor J." has a darker and serious feel; it features recitative vocals, atmospheric keyboards, piano and noises... not bad.

In the closer "Senza senso" you can listen to good percussions work by Paolo Siani (NUOVA IDEA and then EQUIPE 84 member from 1976) and a great electric guitar solo by Alberto Camerini (who worked, among others, with CLAUDIO ROCCHI). Very nice number.

Not enough though to grant a full 3 stars treatment.
