2 stars The main problem with this album is that it seems to have been released with the leftovers of its successful predecessor "La voce del padrone". The ingredients are the same (the use of the choirs to emphasize some melodic passages, the "experimental" lyrics, an exotic flavour on the "new wave receipt") but the result is not so fresh and original.

This album lasts less than 30 minutes and the only tracks I really like are the funny "Voglio vederti danzare", with oriental and classical shades on a pop rhythm and "Scalo a Grado", with lyrics about an Easter Day spent in Grado (a little seaside town on the Adriatic Sea famous for its bathing establishments) and a music interesting for blending pop and a "Catholic mass atmosphere". The rest of the album flows away without prise or blame in a light pop vein filtered by the Franco Battiato's peculiar taste.

Recommended only for the fans of the artist.
