4 stars Hurray! Just goes to show the advantage of growing old and not dying prematurely. I've loved "Canterbury" music for 33 years or more, but I'd never heard of Picchio dal Pozzo until I logged on to Prog Archives. I bought two of their discs last year, I got to know one of them (THIS one!) last month and I think I'm going to be loving it more and more... While the influences from The Soft Machine (circa VOLUME TWO and THIRD), Zappa (UNCLE MEAT and THE GRAND WAZOO), the Hatfields and National Health will be obvious, this album is far more than just "Neo-Canterbury": it was recorded between 1977 and 1980, for heaven's sake; it is full of delightful (rivmic!) melodies; its vocal lines are highly Wyattesque but they're sung by very different (and powerful) voices... All in all, this is the most convincing album of Italian prog I've ever heard, and I can't wait to find out more about P dal P.
