2 stars I think Lucio Battisti is the most important and influent singer-songwriter in the history of italian pop music. It is a matter of fact that almost everyone know, whistle and sing his songs. Almost each of his albums was a mine of hits and singles.

This record is no exception: you can find two stellar pieces as the memorable title track and the deep, romantic, intimate (and favourite of mine) "Io Vorrei... Non Vorrei ... Ma Se Vuoi...". I'm listening to it right now and... hell yes, it's the best one.

"Vento nel Vento" is a small gem: it starts with soft rarefied piano and then it's a slow crescendo until orchestral explosion.

From a prog point of view the album is very frugal and not at the level of AMORE E NON AMORE, IL NOSTRO CARO ANGELO or ANIMA LATINA. "Confusione" is usually referred as a rock number but, to be honest, it is not so biting. I prefer "Gente per Bene e Gente per Male" that has some humoresque vein and, above all, the majestic "L'Aquila" based only on acoustic guitar for the first half and then expanded with somptuous orchestral movements and vocal-echoes.
