4 stars Mass Media can be considered an obscure band from Italy in the '70 with great potential but the final result of a studio album saw the day only in 2007 named Criptoidea. Before this album they release Opacita oscura , a collection of live songs from 1978. So, Mass Media joined together after many years and Criptoidea was issued. This is a fantastic progressive jazz rock relase with catchy passages with top notch musicianship. All pieces has a '70 flavour with references from ELP, PFM, Arti e Mesteri, Brand X with a clear italian atmosphere. Also the final piece Suite del ringraziamento is dedicated to the masters Bach, Mozart, Bernstein, etc All in all a really intresting release this release, totaly unknown to prog listners. Excellent aswell the art work.4 stars for sure, love it.
