3 stars ''Zarathustra'' was more or less regarded as an album created by fascists due to its extreme cover and lyrics and Museo Rosenbach disbanded after some concerts during the summer of 73' with Giancarlo Golzi continuing as a member of the Pop Rock act Matia Bazar.Fast forward some 25 years Golzi along with Alberto Moreno re-established the group with new members Andrea Biancheri on vocals, Marco Balbo on guitars, Marioluca Bariona and Sergio Cossu both on keyboards.Between December 98' and December 99' the new MR formation created the album ''Exit'', which was released in 2000 on Nuova Carisch, the new name of the old Disco Carisch label.

Forget about the bombastic, heavy and complex sound of the old Museo Rosenbach.''Exit'' is basically a melodic Italian Rock album with a beautiful lyrical approach and occasional progressive vibes at moments, the focus though remains an atmospheric song-based style with limited yet interesting instrumental parts.New singer Biancheri has a nice, sensational voice, offering rare emotions, and the music seems to have been built around his warm vocals.Music is quite laid-back with a deep sense of melody, based on synths and guitars, following the new Art Rock trend.Some parts of the album have a good orchestral sound among the more accesible themes, while here and there the listener faces the old side of the group through some carefully-placed organ and Mellotron washes.However the sound actually never escapes the easy path of melodic and atmospheric Rock, so you shouldn't expect any kind of intricate interplays or complicated instrumental lines from ''Exit''.

If you reach this album as an old Museo Rosenbach fan, then the game is lost.For what it is, ''Exit'' is a great album full of emotional moments and great melodies.Recommended, but be sure to listen to this new formation as a totally new entry with no comparisons to the vintage years of the group.
