3 stars I don't know if Battiato's music can be defined progressive. Anyway, this is a good prog related album. There are many oriental influences that FB will exploit better in his later works, mainly from the middle east. The lyrics are hermetic, hard to be interpreted and there are lots of references to literature and history. There's an error in the track list: Bandiera Bianca is the correct title, and it's related to a short poetry of the middle 19th century (Bandiera Gialla was a night club in the 60s). The best tracks are "Gli uccelli" and "Segnali di vita", the two that can be defined progressive. All the others are good electronic pop. Maybe it's not essential, but it can be a good starting point for whom wants to approach Battiato's music. 3 stars
