2 stars If you expect from this album something like "Zarathustra" you will be disappointed. Here there's no much left of the old Museo Rosenbach. The only founding members in the new line-up are Alberto Moreno and Giancarlo Golzi and the music is definitively closer to the elegant pop of the Matia Bazar (band where have been playing Giancarlo Golzi and Sergio Cossu) than to "Zarathustra". "Exit" should be a concept album but in my opinion the project is too much confused.

According to the official website of the band, "Exit is a concept album of a different kind because the common thread running through all the songs is fragmentary element. In this album Museo Rosenbach has apparently told isolated events, occasionally in the form of regular songs. These are peculiar moments of a daily experience, feelings, moods, personal memories, impressions from mass-media news, thinking habits of the average man".

In my opinion the "concept" is a little bit pretentious and the ideas sometimes seem to get lost into the mist. The first track "Exit" is a kind of short intro to the album with a good acoustic guitar arpeggio (and "obscure" lyrics). Then, with "Il terzo occhio" the music turns to a smart pop sound. My favourite track is "Il re del circo" ("The King of The Circus", lyrics about the civil war in Yugoslavia) where you can find at least some hints of progressive. Good also the final track "Un porto nel sole", though not outstanding...

On the whole the album, although it's not exactly a prog-rock one, is not all that bad and it could be at least of some interest for collectors and fans.
