1 stars There is nothing as similar as a "Banco" album from the eighties than another one. If you are in electro-pop, you might like this one. Actually, back to the eighties I have been listening to some bands like "Human League" and alike and liked them quite well. But when "Banco" opted for this disco-pop beat, I just found it disgusting.

In my review for their previous "album" : "Banco, 1983" I promised to tell which album was their worse form this decade (the eighties). "Urgentissimo" held one good song "C'e' Qualcosa", ""Michele E Il Treno" was the one of two halves pleasant song from "Buone Notizie" (the other half one was : "Baciami Alfredo") and there were none featured on "Banco 83".

About this release now. The worst "Touch Your Eyes" sits aside with the horrorous "Black Out" as well as "To The Fire".

Actually, "Mexico City" is half good. Beautiful and inspired Giacomo vocals during the verse, but these awful beats will strike again during the chorus.

If you really want to suffer, I strongly advise you to listen to "Lies In Your Eyes". Dreadful. I thought that "Genesis" (83) or "Yes" ("Big Generator", "Union" or "Talk" reached the bottom but "Banco" has surpassed them quite of bit with their quatuor of the eighties.

Since this album holDs half a good song, the golden palm goes to "Banco '83" as the poorest output from this once good band.

One star for this one, of course.
