2 stars A difficult one to review, Trimesto.

This is the debut album from the Italian band Runaway Totem and now a free download from their homepage. It is also an album that pulls in all direction. Trimesto is an octopus where each of the tentacles is pulling the body in their own individual direction. On this album, you find everything from zeuhl, rio, reggae, crossover, theatrical symphonic prog, post rock, punk, jazz and blues. It is like Christian Vander forming a band with Peter Gabriel and trying to play their respective form of music on the top of each other without making any compromises whatsoever. It is chaos and that is what Trimesto is. Chaos.

Chaos can be good. Very good indeed. But in the case of Trimesto, it is not good. The production is uneven and all over the place. The vocals are not good. The songs is disjointed and the album simply does not have any coherence. Trimesto sounds like the debut album from a band looking for an idea and an identity to adopt. And I guess this is what this album is. Sorry, but this album is no good.
