I do not raise my expectations to high but lets see what comes out of it.
 
It's going to be released in January by the way. That Fiume track is my favourite so far also.

I'm on my phone so no links but I would like to recommend what Luca recommended me here the other day: Franco Battiato doing his own electronic spin on PFM's classic Impressioni di Settembre https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=RjFPMzGLMzM

^ Thanks H, I look forward to these. I liked the Paradiso from years back, so I have high hopes for Purgatorio.

Good news, I hope! Their last few have been very uninspiring, with the sole exception of the Live in Tokyo that Enzo Vita played with members of RanestRane. Thanks, H.

Hey, what did I miss? How is everyone?

Sorry about the long absence...

In the press of seeking and listening to new music (some out of quest, some out of responsibility), I have found that I don't revisit the great works of the past enough. I've begun to remedy that, and have spent the last several days with the amazing Ys by Il Balletto di Bronzo. What an adventure that one is!



A while back I posted a couple reviews of Balletto-related works that provide a bit of historical context, if you're interested.

Random RPI thought of the day:

Do I dare ask what Osanna's `Fog in My Mind' is about?!

I'm sure I'm not mishearing it, but there's the repeated lines of `I touch myself' and `I hate my hands', and I feel rather

I haven't listened to it in a loooooong time, I certainly forgot about it. All I remember from it except from it being very very different from Contaminazione is that's it is mostly a hard rock prog album, quite close to Osage Tribe, I don't think there's even a keyboard there. A lot of distorted bass and guitars, weird vocals, a very raw recording. I'll have to revisit sometime.

And btw yes it was reissued.

I mis-spoke without doing research. It has, indeed, been reissued many times over the years.

Hi Paul, welcome to the Den. 
I'm not sure I've ever heard that one....most people jump right to their next album with RDM.  Which I believe is a very different album.  I will try to check it out sometime

My first introduction to Italian Prog was Io Come Io by Il Rovescio Della Medaglia. The record floored me. My friend put it on just to see what I thought. I ended up listening to it twice in a row. Just amazing.

Actually, I'm listening to this one at work right now:



Not bad at all for the time, but it's probably more interesting with the DVD of the concert that comes with it.
