3 stars Claudio Milano is the creative force behind the avant band NICHELODEON. He's one very talented man both in his compositions and vocals. While his solo albums are listed under Electronic this certainly isn't an Electronic album but the follow-up "Adython" is. This particular record is mainly piano, percussion and voice throughout. I wouldn't say it was samey because of that but it's close to that description. The one exception is the live track which is by far my favourite as we get a full band sound there.

So yes as you go down through the tracks i've written percussion, piano and vocals over and over. Of course Claudio mixes things up as we go. "La Torre Piu Alta" the ninth track is different as we get some crazy stuff happening including a laughter that is in a rhythm. Funny ! The live track is called "Disegnando Cattedrali Di Cellule" and it's by far the longest at 12 1/2 minutes. Applause to start as dissonant horns and clashing cymbals follow. Piano and vocals take over 2 minutes in then a beat before 3 minutes. The trumpet is back after 5 minutes as the vocals stop. Piano only after 7 minutes then spoken words a minute later. Singing with piano follows then a beat 10 1/2 minutes in followed by trumpet. It's spooky late.

A good album but without question one of Claudio's tamer ones.
