4 stars Be awared. This isn't comforting everyone, not even the avant-heads, or even me.

Hanno Seppellito L'Uomo Sbagliato (1.) - Experimental electronic guitar sound, quite heavy and noisy, but distinguishly avant-garde. Reminds me of RUINS and even some math/post rock, and "free" improvisation - some kinf of closed-sounding jazz but also spacious like the beginning of the song. (2.) Sheffield Wednesday's beginnig (and ending) is psychedelic vocally-oriented experiment - this is what you get when you're pissed of to the days of week. Like in the previous song, bass is fairly similar ISLAND - Pictures in some parts, but with more fusion touch - very nice!, and the guitar soloing reminds me of ADRIAN BELEW's ones. Fate Fagotto! (3.) is more close to the funny chamber rock scene, but with more metallic jazz rock fusion touch (here and in other parts - think Ruins). (4.) Storie Del Dormiveglia - In this case, PRESENT - Ersatz is what pops into my mind, for there's some melodies and sounds quite similar. (5.) Qua Qua Qua... Singing Ducks - this is where the electronic experimentation comes on show at the latest. Singing ducks. But the form is once again free, some kind of slow atmospheric free jazz, flowing. The ending has noises like mechanic very avantgardistic piano that seems to be playing nothing (for some people). I like this kind of style (Listen to the piano passage before the ending in HENRY COW - Beautiful As The Moon - Terrible As An Army With Banners.). Donne Kamikaze (6.) is growing and repetitive like all these songs somehow, but it's also short, and only some kind of heavy interlude. The end starts to sound Vialka (nice jovial distortion guitar), which is some kind of jazz punk folk band. (7.) Un Mondo Invisibile is ambient-like song that reminds me of Yes, but there's some weird electronic hits that are hard to describe. I listen to prog mostly and not so much electronic prog, but "Faithless - Insomnia" is one that I can get for example. (8.) Red Wire is a bit scary.. noise and bass that goes slowly along the wire that is red with horror. (9.) The Drumming Talk is strange because I think there's other instruments talking than drum. But then.. also the drum begins to rule. Good ending for the album.

Not so much electronic as Ars srA or L'enorme Tragedia, but more heavy "improvisation". Original. 3,5 stars.
