4 stars Claudio Milano, classically trained seven-octave vocal range Italian singer is probably better known as avant-rock band NichelOdeon vocalist and main driving force, but beside of his work in band he has a lot of projects,all experimental by its nature.

"L'urlo rubato. Musiche per il teatro" is his solo debut, three long pieces composed by him as well. Tagged as "Music For Theatre" , in fact this album represents an eclectic collection of very experimental mix of operatic vocals,modern theatrical soundtracks and avant-garde music elements. Comparing with Claudio later works music is quite accessible here, even catchy at moments, but at the same time walking on the blade's edge. Probably the best way to think about this album is just imagine some Frank Zappa's early conceptual work ("Uncle Meat",etc) and bring it to new Millenium Italy with country's classical and operatic traditions.

Differently from myriads of clones combining operatic vocals with power metal/ viking metal/ whatever-you-want metal Claudio Milano represents far not so overexplored and much more advanced direction searching new synthesis between opera,classical music, rock and contemporary avant-garde. Recommended release for open ears listener with interest to experimental classical/rock and avant-garde music (it looks the album is OOP so probably you'll must try harder to find it).
