2 stars A 'Canterbury Scene' masterpiece? I think not. This album is obviously derivative of bands like Henry Cow, National Health (some of the horn charts were literally lifted from OF QUEUES AND CURES) and of UNCLE MEAT era Zappa, but there are no memorable tunes, and most of the music fails to pack a punch because the rhythm section is so weak. Furthermore, Aldo de Scalzi's "Sprechgesang" vocals are terribly irritating. You may find him amusing if your Italian is more fluent than mine, but I seriously doubt you will - the lyrics look like pure nonsense. Admittedly there are a few moments of beauty (when Paolo Griguolo gets going his Phil Miller-style solos do catch your ear, and 'Uccellin del Bosco', the brief bonus track, sounds fairly pleasant) but on the whole ABBIAMO... is hard to love.
