Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars New Italian trio Neo album opens in accordance with its title - with short pseudo-classical miniature "Invenzione n.1". But I afraid here is beginning and the end of "neoclassico" as concept.

Starting from " Il Dente Del Pregiudizio" trio plays what you can expect from band, influenced by Zorn's Naked City - noisy angular (and even hypnotically repetitive in moments) punk-jazz. This time album was recorded in Steve Albini's studio during band's visit of Chicago. Possibly it influenced the sound which became even more "American".

Some last years in avantgarde rock are quite fruitful on noisy improv bands. Sharpness, noisiness and angular improvs aren't exotic sounds any more. But fortunately Neo music (differently from many their colleagues) has one strong positive factor - they are professionals with jazzy feels coming to avant-rock, not noisy and heavyweight rockers, trying to play music, which often is too complex for their skills.

Returning back to "Neoclassico", it sounds possibly not so surprising as trio's previous work. More sharp and noisy, less jazzy it is obviously more product for American listener. For good or bad depends mostly on your taste (I like their previous work more). Still one between more interesting releases in it's genre coming this year.
