Review by Mellotron Storm
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Roberto's second album continues with that "lights out" instrumental work from the debut but he has a lot more guests helping out this time. The style has changed as well as we get very little of that JRF flavour and much more of an orchestral / classical vibe. So yeah i'm not enjoying this one nearly as much.

"Botte Da Orbi" is all over the place as they stop and go on a dime. At times this is orchestral, at times jazzy. Operatic vocals before 3 minutes. "Ascolta Si Fa Sera" has some killer drumming and strange vocals. "Fiato Ale Trombo" has horns, drums and bass that seem to blast in and out. Vocals before 3 minutes but not for long. "Dai Non Fare Il Romantico" is led by keyboards and flute early then it picks up after 2 minutes and you can hear a conversation in the background. It settles back 3 1/2 minutes in.

"Alegher Alegher" opens with a child's laughter then this intricate yet powerful sound takes over. Orchestral is the word. Violin leads then back to the orchestral sounds. Sax leads after 4 minutes. "Danza Disumana" has deep vocals and drums. Flute then sax before 1 1/2 minutes. Strange vocal expressions 3 minutes in. "Il Ritorno Di U Kembe" opens with vocal melodies then the music kicks in. Sax before 2 minutes with prominant drums. Some nice bass then back to the horns. "Fine Del Trentatre" is the short concluding track that has flute and orchestral sounds to start then the vocals join in. The vocals stop and it gets fuller.

I just didn't really enjoy this one which is surprising considering how much i liked his debut.
