3 stars This album signed a turn in the Battisti's career. He started to use new musical structures, different from the usual song format as you can listen in the opener "La Collina Dei Ciliegi" (only apparently naif) which doesn't feature any chorus/refrain but many stops and go, changing of tempos plus addition of feminine vocals. Same goes for "Ma E' un Canto Brasilero" that opens with spoken words and then evolves in a rock rythm.

The title track is an absolute masterwork, in my humble opinion with those ermetic and obscure lyrics, memorable and solemn bass lines.

"La Canzone della Terra" is the most strange and experimental with rural percussions and lyrics based on typical words of a farmer. Then, at the half of the track the suprise: an injection of atmospheric keyboards (electronic strings).

"Allettanti Promesse" and "Questo Inferno Rosa" are very good, provoking and sophisticated.

In conlusion, this work is not at the level of the following "Anima Latina" but it is at the roots of that.

Andrea Cortese | 3/5 |
