5 stars This third work of Area demonstrate that after a extraordinery incipit with "Arbeit Macht Frei", a second album in the name of the free jazz and soun experimentation, the creativity river of Stratos and friends is still at the maximum. The musicianship is mostruosely good in each song, even the amazing voice of Demetrio Stratos, the best italian singer ever born. "L'Elefante Bianco" opens the album with energetic and etnic sounds of Patrizio Fariselli's keyboards ad Paolo Tofani's guitar. The second track is "La Mela di Odessa", a song divided in a first instrumental part with superb musicianship principally by Giulio Capiozzo, the best drumman I've ever heard, and a secon part with a constant riff and a speech of Stratos. The tracks 3 ("Megalopoli") and 4 ("Nervi Scoperti") are instrumental tracks. Very good music with electric bass and contrabass by the amazing Ares Tavolazzi, a kind of italian Jaco Pastorius. The fifth track is "Gioia e Rivoluzione", the typical comunist song of the seventies, very powerfull voice by Demetrio. "Implosion" is another experimental, free instrumental track, in wich every one plays his own instrument like no other one. "Area 5" closes the album. A real free song made by sounds apparently without any sense, but of great emotive impact. Highly recommended to every one, above all the musicians: everyone of us must learn by this group.
