3 stars Too early recording. The band's music is very influenced by the 60s country-rock as almost all the less commercial Italian music of that period. They sound like "I Giganti" or "I Nomadi". There are symptoms of the experimentalism to come, in some lyrics and in some musical moments like the flut eat the end of "La Storia Piu' Bella Del Mondo".

There's a bit of rock, also a little acid, on "Schallplattengesellschaftmbh" that's the best track of the album and the one surely of interest for proggers. We have to take into account that in 1969 in Italy a band had to obtain a contract with a major and follow the market's rules. This track is an excellent exception and tells us where the band actually wanted to go.

The rest is pop. Often good pop, but it has just a documentary value. Only "Ramo" has a psychedelic/indian mood given by the acoustic 12 strings guitar that sounds like a sitar (or is it a true sitar? It looks more like a 12-strings).

Another good track is the closer "Sotto I Ponti Di Marmo" that has also good lyrics.

Three good tracks oncluded in the middle of forgettable stuff are not enough for the third star, but I suggest this album anyway, because the three mentioned tracks are good and deserve a listen.

It's not their fault. The forgettable material was likely what the major wanted. I give two stars but three wouldn't be a scandal.

EDIT: I didn't realize that this is the first "collaborator review". My rating has decreased the overall rating too much and because this is a 2.5 stars I have changed my mind and decided to round them up. My final rating goes from 2 to 3.
