Prog Reviewer
4 stars The special thing about this Secret Chiefs 3 album is that it isn't really a Secret Chiefs 3 album - rather, it's an album fully recorded by one of the several different "satellite" bands which together form Secret Chiefs 3. Specifically, it's the work of the Traditionalists, an outfit designed to pay tribute to the musicians providing great music for Italian horror and thriller B-movies of the 1970s - and yes, that includes a few nods to the funkier side of Goblin, but it also includes nods to Ennio Morricone and still other composers besides. Presented as the soundtrack to a film which doesn't exist, there's no vocals provided so when it comes to sussing out the plot of Le Mani... (whose title reminds me a little of an Italian take on Manos: the Hands of Fate!) we're left to consider the packaging, booklet and song titles - and, of course, the music itself, which is as perfect a tribute to the era as you are likely to find.
