2 stars COMO TI VA ? VA BENE.

Especially when I don't listen to this album. It has been a while now that "PFM" didn't release a very good album. Six years actually separates "Chocolate Kings" and this one.

Six difficult years to fall down from the pinnacle to the abysses. "Suonare" already showed a MAJOR change in their musical directions but here and there, some nice violin parts from Lucio Fabbri to highlight a few tracks.

Nothing as such on this album (even if Lucio is still there). No great (not even good) songs; but the "palme d'or" is for "Rock In La". But the battle to distribute such a reward is tough on "Come Ti Va".

"PFM" was not at its creative heights while recording this record, beleive me. There is hardly one song to be put in evidence. It is more a collection of insipid music. The ultra lows of "Jet Lag" are almost reached. But no jazzy mood in here. Just some pop songs, some rock ones. But no prog ones; that's for sure.

Even if it not totally bad, I can absolutely not recommend this album. Some Italian rock music which I would compare to several "Ange" albums of the eighties which were only average French rock music without interest. For your piece of mind, just stay away from this one.

Two stars for this non "PFM" album.
