3 stars My first ever exposure to this band. I have a reasonable large collection of their albums though and will run through them during the next twenty years or so. Ambitions, ambitions......

Goblin does soundtracks. According to the cover on this album, I guess it is a horror movie. After a short search, that has been confirmed. An Italian gentleman murdering young virgins for the joy of it. That's does not sounds like Sound Of Music # 2.

The music here is not in the Sound Of Music vein either. It is dark, brooding and dramatic. Just like an Italian gentleman slaying young virgins for the joy of it. Music wise, and the Italian everyday documentary movie put aside, the music here reminds me a lot about Clearlight. It is dynamic, moody and pretty jazzy at times. It is driven by tangents and bass.

The music is surprisingly good. It takes time to sink in though and is not an immediate hit in my household. But it slowly sinks in. The musicians does a very good job. But it is hard to judge a soundtrack without watching the movie. I have no intention of watching this documentary/horror movie though. But on it's own, this is a good album. Although very bland, I have to say. It is neither prog, jazz or any known creature. But I am not complaining that much.

3 stars
