I love all of the Area albums these are off, though I do have a particular thing for the lowest rated of the first five albums, Caution Radiation Area.  If I were to choose one, it would be "Mirage".  It is a track which really entranced me on first listen and solidified my Area appreciation (a very easy one for me to love considering my tastes).

So, if you can choose one, which one in particular for you?

I have to think about it, but I know it will be a track from the same album as your choice.

Over land and under ashes
In the sunlight, see - it flashes
Find a fly and eat his eye
But don't believe in me
Don't believe in me
Don't believe in me

"Mirage" is one of my favs too.Hard to pick just one of course. "Scum" stands out for me as does "Megalopoli". How about "Brujo" ,great tune.  Today i pick "Consapevolezza" !

Oh geez.  I've only heard Arbeit Macht Frei, Crac! and Maledetti, so I can't vote yet, would be tough if I had to.

That one track with the snake-charming Arabian melodies that turns into a complete chaos before it resolves into the most poignant ballad ever written for yodeling vocals Smile

L'elefante bianco--my favorite song from my favorite Area album

^ It's a great track.

I thought Area was more popular at PA than the poll results indicate.  If one hasn't heard every album represented here, feel free to vote anyway. I expect some simply can't remember the names of the tracks (something that's happening to me more and more as I get older).

Well, it is an intimidating list.  And for many, an intimidating band.  The first time I heard the opening of "Arbeit Macht Frei," with the chanting that initiates "Luglio, Agosto, Settembre (Nero)" and the gripping music that follows, I knew I was onto something.  What an introduction!
