4 stars Claudio's most recent release is unlike anything I have ever heard. Basically we get his voice often manipulated along with a computer, sax, electronics and a laptop. If any of you have seen the movie "21 Jump Street" you'll remember the scene after the two undercover officers ingest drugs and the various stages they go through. At times you'd think they are going to just explode. Well this is like a soundtrack to a really crazy drug fuelled trip. We get two long tracks giving us just over 47 minutes of insanity.

We don't get very far into "L'oracolo Di Delfi" before it's understood that this is going to be an experimental journey into the mind of a psycho. Those really high pitched vocals followed by spoken words and vocal expressions are just mental. Atmosphere and sounds kick in before 3 minutes as he sings slowly. A repetitive beat after 4 minutes is intense including the vocal sounds. Relief after 5 1/2 minutes then more bizarre vocals follow. Intensity before 10 minutes, and then after 13 minutes it becomes apocalyptic. Incredible !

"Adython" opens with a vocal note then it turns all "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas" on us. Deep atmosphere 1 1/2 minutes in takes over as horns come in too. What a trip this is. Heavy breathing after 9 minutes followed by a scream then desperate words. Paranoia. More horns and atmosphere follow. Vocals are back after 16 minutes. We get almost operatic vocals after 23 minutes. It sounds like mellotron before 24 minutes then vocals and horns follow. More deep atmosphere before 28 minutes. Crazy atmosphere and vocals 31 minutes in.

I really think this is just too much insanity since it's 47 minutes long. This would be amazing as part of an album. Also I wish the vocals were in English to know what's going on, although maybe it's better not knowing (haha).
