3 stars RUMPLE STILTZKEN COMUNE are from the Italian speaking town of Chiasso in Switzerland right on the Italian border. Just look at the names of the band members and you'll see that these guys are Italian.Vocals are in English though and there's really nothing here to make one think of seventies RPI. This their only album was released in 1977.

"Flipping" opens with piano then it changes before a minute as drums, vocals, bass and other sounds take over. An instrumental section follows with lots of synths.Vocals are back after 5 1/2 minutes. Piano ends it. "Wrong From The Beginning" has a relaxing beat and sound with vocals.This is my favourite track and this section sounds so good. Organ too in this one. It picks up after 3 minutes with some prominant bass.Vocals are back after 4 1/2 minutes. Organ to the fore 7 minutes in.

"To Be Or Not To Be" opens with piano then it turns atmospheric. Spoken words before 2 minutes then it kicks in. Not for long though as it settles back with vocals. It sounds great after 5 minutes with the synths then it turns intense before ending with piano. "The Closed Boy" opens with a circus-like melody. Vocals after a minute and the tempo picks up. It settles with acoustic guitar and reserved vocals after 5 minutes.This is almost GENESIS-like. It kicks back in again after 8 minutes. Piano only to end it.

A good album but nothing more.
