5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the Best Music ever Created April 20, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is one of the least popular, yet it is by far Lucio Battisti's best album. This is music that transcends time itself. It is now 30 years old and still going strong. I am 43, and I introduced Battisti to some 18-22 year olds and they were amazed at the original sounds. The experimentation is thrilling - I wish he carried on on this wave, instead he went straight into disco, punk and house... well... still like some of those later notes, mind you.
If you want to like this album, first listen to it a few times before you decide it's crap - don't do like the 70s Battisti fans - it was too avante garde for them - still is today :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius June 22, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This work is one of my favorites (as an album) - unbelievable for 1974! I really thought the work was much later (more recent) when I first heard this. He was WAY ahead of his time; no doubt why he is still so popular with young people when they discover him. This particular cd is meant to be listened to as one piece - it flows as one work. The music is like "world music" and brilliantly put together and performed. Highly recommended; in fact, I never write reviews - only of Lucio (as much as I love music and so many artists - he alone moves me to write about what he did in this life).

5.0 out of 5 stars Battisti more experimental album!! December 28, 2003
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
This is the Battisti's more experimental album so i not reccomend this one to the people that know only the first Battisti, I bet it's better to begin with something more simple than this. Anima Latina is the best song ever recorded by Battisti it's a great piece of world music (not a common thing in the first 70'!!!) with great lyrics but all the album is great, may Due Mondi is the most pop song anyway I really reccomend this album to the people that like experimental music and a great studio work...

This thing manages to be both of its own time and transcend it at the same time. Words can't even really describe how lush, majestic, trail-blazing, bizarre, goofy, weird... this thing is. Fans of Kate Bush or Roxy Music need apply. Progressive Art-Pop at its finest.

There are seconds of this thing that I can pick out of this thing and deem my favorite. SECONDS. I've said that I like certain 'passages' of certain other albums that are excellent, but to be able to say that mere seconds of this thing are what grab my attention takes something truly special. It sounds utterly incredible the whole way through. The way this guy utilized odd sounds to his advantage was cutting edge. It takes so many twists and turns the whole journey through, and yet not one detour feels out of place or jarring. Just incredible. Some of the progressions and airy space between sounds reminds me of Krautrock (Think 'Deluxe' era Harmonia) or Talk Talk, but other parts remind me of Jazz or Folk.

I encourage everyone interested in experimental or progressive music that's interested in actually GOING SOMEWHERE to immediately pick this one up. I'm extremely selective in what music I buy so you should listen to me. (Just kidding. You don't really have to.)

At least listen to it. It deserves it. You deserve it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lucio's One Mistake July 3, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm sorry to say I can't recommend this album. Due Mondi is the only piece in it that is good and it can be found in other collections of his work.
