4 stars The RPI (and related) live reviews series vol.5

The first live of Franco Battiato is focused in 80's Avantgarde POP. This music isn't Prog. But not a simple POP. In this sense I think ht the Battiato's success with this music isn't expressed in relation to the music since it be it's difficult to assimilate. In my opinion Battiato conceives a very Prog POP that is good for a great conoisseur of a fine music but that is too difficult for a simply listener. Is it for this reason that wrote a Classical Music albums? Is it for this reason that conceived an album like "Il Vuoto"? In the 80's Battiato plays a song that play easy but that easy are not. Because "Voglio Vederti Danzare" isn't a simple song... To play and to listen to. And because... "Giubbe Rosse", "Lettera al Governatore Della Libia", "Oceano Di Silenzio", "Sequenze E Frequenze", "Summer On A Solitary Beach" or "E Ti Vengo A Cercare" are simple POP song. The lyrics are very hard to undrestand because too squanders from a simple POP songs. For me "Giubbe Rosse" is a great live, Prog or not Prog.
