4 stars When you have a fantastic discography behind you, four great studio albums, and a bobbastic live recording, how else to show the perfect harmony of the musicians than with an acoustic presentation of the songs. In my personal opinion, the acoustic performances of the songs represent walking on dangerous ground and hardly any album made in this way managed to give justice to the compositions.

Il Bacio Della Medusa with their "AnimAcusticA" from 2020 showed once again all the genius and musical power. The band consists of: Simone Cecchini - vocals, 6 and 12 string acoustic guitar, Diego Petrini - drums, piano, synthesizer and mellotron, Federico Caprai - bass guitar, Simone Brozzetti - solo guitar, Simone "Il Poca" Matteucci - acoustic guitar and Eva Morelli - flute, alto and soprano saxophone and piccolo.

The album, which contains 12 songs, starts with "Preludio: Il Trapasso", in which the band plays a wonderfully calm mix of jazz, folk and progressive rock, which has some tempo changes and flows seamlessly into "Confessione D'un Amante", "Il Vino (Breve Delirio Del Vino)", a great swinging uptempo rock song with influences of jazz. "Scorticamento Di Marsia" delivers a fantastic progressive rock song, which starts quietly and after a few minutes turns into an uptempo piece of music. With "Cantico Del Poeta Errante", the band brings a delightful progressive folk song.

The entire album represents infectious danceable rhythm that changes into a slow tempo, than fast tempo with jazz and progressive influences. It is a great live album and all the arrangements of the compositions are conceived and done perfectly.
