4 stars A tremendous emotion given to me.

Listened to HOMUNCULUS RES' stuff for the first time, and enjoyed much. They have attractive variation of progressive rock essence fusioned with Canterbury / Jazz Rock, and in addition, seasoned with Italian easygoing temperature and a tad sensitive racial character ... such a musical appearance can sometimes sound ironic, and sometimes purely childish. Yes looks like they play completely what they want to do upon this album turf, and it's simple and natural for them and also the audience.

Wondering where would they like to go via this album "Come Si Diventa Ciò Che Si Era". No nervous touch nor strong persistence but somewhat their great enthusiasm to create "such a music pleasure" can be heard ... "Vesica Piscis", as if the title (in English "Independent Noises"?) musically designed, tells us what they would produce with noisy rock sound elements. They might convert noises via instruments into a cup of dramatic, sensational sound stew. They notify us this work be not difficult when the production might be done with much delight and sincerity.

And it's magical and attractive that we can receive such a complex melody line based upon multi-rhythmic origin as a natural music phenomenon. Via such an amazing fact, we can find this should be one of their emotional strategies. Even through a short track like "La Felicità" or "Egg Soup" their safe and sound presence of musical condition (but slightly distorted fantastically) can be heard. Some slimy stuffs remind us of jazzy Krautrock like Electrip (Xhol Caravan). On the other hand, the longest one "Ospedale Civico" (Civic Hospital) can be felt as a Soft Machine-ary crooked, mobbed sound treasure seasoned with Italian words and tempos peculiar to RPI. Let me say their soundscape is such a lunatic (in a fine sense) (why can a civic hospital sound psychic, btw?).

No complicated or tortuous opinion needed. Taking a listen to this album above all, let me say, and we can feel as though our musical field of vision should expand forward in addition to Rock Progressivo Italiano or Canterbury Scene without any doubt. An amazing stuff really.
