5 stars Picchio Dal Pozzo - Abbiamo Tutti I Suoi Problemi (headline of this one is humourously actual - isn't it?) may be in my oppinion one of the most interesting albums existing on this site! There are many Italian bands represented here but... this item seems to be "the upper limit" to this site - chance to be one of the best rock-related musics ever! Very surprising fact but this record is re-released on CD only in Asia - South Korea and Japan (only LP version is released originally in Italy)??!

Well. Picchio Dal Pozzo was the band from Genova (my favourite city in Italy I have been). The music of them would be maybe complex Canterbury fusion mixed by RIO, zappaesque jazz compositions + something melodic from Italy... Abbiamo Tutti I Suoi Problemi was their second effort. Both first two records of them are very worth to listen. Very juicy spectrum of sounds (the basis of every musics in general always) + intelligent and adventurous compositions give to this album a status of masterpiece. We can hear instruments like recorders, saxes, clarinette, flutes, trombone, violin, keyboards, bass, guitars, drums, vibes.

In fact my personal fave is Moderno Ballabile - because of almost perfection as "ideal music could be". The other very impressive composition is Mettiamo Il Caso - the longest and maybe the most adventurous one - with hints to two tracks from PDP's first album (Napier, Seppia). Only the bonus track Uccellin Del Bosco from flexi-single doesn't fit with the rest of the masterpiece - in spite of this one still doubtlessly five stars!
