1 stars I remember I was just introduced to Alan Sorrenti through his album "Sienteme". It was not my pot but I was still regarding him as an interesting singer-songwrites with a jazzy feel in the vein of Napoli Centrale and the other jazzy-prog acts from Naples of that time.

I remember when I heard the title track for the first time from the TV. The speaker introduced Alan Sorrenti and I was excited to see that kind of artist in a top-of-the-pops-like TV show....

Ther was a reason unfortunately. As well as New Trolls did in the same period, Alan Sorrenti tried to recycle himself and make some more money by attacking the pop mainstream market with a Bee-Gees like falsetto. There is no track on this album of his previous things. The reason why I'm reviewing this album is to make people avoid wasting time and money on it.

As I have written time ago about a Camel album, I think that a bad review can be of help even for the artist. If one thinks that all the Sorrenti's production is like this will surely miss his good debut and the three decent follow-ups. This one is a plastic disco-pop album with very few goodies, mainly in some remains of jazz-blues flavor totally jeopardized by the poorness of the songs. A weak attempt to be mimic of the most successful pop bands of the time and an early anticipation of the poorness that the 80s would bring to the world.

He sold a lot of albums but as it often happens with huge mainstream successes, it was question of just a season then he has been forgotten. I have seen Sorrenti on TV taking part to a "nostalgia" show. He still sings "Figli delle Stelle".

Avoid this album but give some attention to the previous ones, not all his works are good for the waste as this.
