4 stars "Anima Latina" is probably the only true prog album Battisti ever recorded. It is a very eclectic work, still in his typical singer-songwriter style, and considered by many as his masterwork.

Certainly it is his most ambitious and complex work where different musical genres are wisely mixed: "canzone", folk, latin rythms, jazz (a la IL VOLO), electronic and cosmic music, all suited in extended tracks, dipped in wide use of keyboards (atmospheric and synths).

The album reached the highest ranking in Italy at that time and there remained for 13 weeks without a break (total 65 weeks at the top); unfortunately, nowadays it is the least known of all his works. Almost all the tracks are composed without choruses (except for "Due Mondi").

Andrea Cortese | 4/5 |
