1 stars I have never really understood why TNT was considered as such a great and influential Italian band. They have released some good (three) to very good (one) albums so far and I can tell you that while you listen to the short (thank god!) "Aldebaran", it doesn't add anything interesting to their discography.

Was it really necessary to get back together some two years prior to this album to record such a lousy album? This is really an infect album whose nadir is probably the incredibly weak and useless "Suite Disco".

If ever you want to listen to sub-par "Bee Gees" singing in Italian this might be your Holy Grail. But who wants to listen to this? It is a total waste of time: to listen to it and to review it.

"Akin" said in his review that "This is a total disaster from a progressive point of view". I would even say that you can cut the sentence before "from a progressive point of view". It is a pure disaster.

Absolutely dreadful. Just have a short listen to the reggae oriented "Lei, Se Voi". Gosh!!! If you prefer some indigestible soup, let's go for the syrupy and insipid title track: one of the worst ballad ever written I guess.

But the whole of this record is to be forgotten (or better: never be listened to). By doing so, you will avoid some extreme poor "musical" moments like the disgusting "Espanolada".

"Dancing" starts as a parody of "Queen": some sort of "Rhapsody". It is actually the only bearable part of the album. But it will be blended into some soulish mood of the poorest effect. Still, it has to considered as the best stuff available in here. But it was quite easy?

One star. Just ignore this album.
