5 stars Let me start by saying that im a huge Rock Progressivo Italiano fan, a friend of mine sent me this album, and I had no idea what to expect (truth be told I was expecting Faith No More) I began listening and I was pleasantly surprised, it’s all covers of 50’s 60’s Italian pop/ jazz, and in fact it’s all sung in Italian. The album gives mike patton a lot of room to show off just how great of a singer he is, and how very diverse of a singer we already knew he was. He does such a good job singing it’s hard to believe he isn’t a native speaker. Tracks like “Ore D’Amore” “Quello Che Conta” show of Patton’s more soft side where as tracks like “Urlo Negro” and “Che Conta” show a much strong, heavier and darker side although nothing compared to the heavy tracks of Patton’s other projects (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle).

The 50’s 60’s Italian pop/jazz is very authentic (except for the sound quality obviously) and the music is so well performed, being that the majority of the record was recorded live which is incredible because the album sounds excellent, it would be hard to make it sound better in anyway, even if they spent years in the studio. I believe this to be one of the best cover albums of all time and a very strong album in Patton’s discography. 5 out of 5
