5.0 out of 5 stars theeeeeeeee December 6, 2003
By Jose
Format:Audio CD
Festa Mobile stands out mostly because of their keyboardist, who plays some of the quirkiest piano melodies I've
heard in prog. 1973's Diarro Di Viaggio Della Festa Mobile is this band's only album, but a few of the musicians
later emerged as Baricentro. Diarro... is quite a unique album. While the music gets frantic once in a while, there
are plenty of beautiful moments to be found as the album unfolds. Their guitarist offers some very tasty
Fripp-influenced riffs and he does a good job balancing the quirky piano lines. My only complaint is that most of the
songs have traditional song-structures. The band confidently builds to what might seem like a climatic section, but
instead choose to go back to an earlier verse or chorus. The tracks also tend to fade out just when the band starts
cooking. Overall, though, Festa Mobile are definitely worth searching out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Italian progressive November 21, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This 1973 release is pretty good, although I felt that some of the compositions had an unfinished quality to them. In general, I feel that this album sits comfortably alongside any number of similar albums in the Italian progressive scene, e.g., Zarathustra (Museo Rosenbach, 1973).

The album blends together aspects of rock, English progressive, and a smidge of classical. The keyboardist is good and favors acoustic piano, although the electric piano and string synthesizer pop up every so often too. The rhythm section is pretty heavy, and there is a lot of electric guitar soling over an ostinato, usually played on the bass guitar. Taken as a whole, the overall sound is a lot heavier and more direct than the more sophisticated groups, like Banco del Mutuo Soccorso for example. The vocals (in Italian) are good and there are some nice vocal harmonies. I guess that my only complaint is that I wish there was more timbral variety and a wider dynamic range.

This reissue is pretty bare bones and the sound quality is OK.

All in all, this is yet another decent album of Italian progressive rock, with an emphasis on the rock side of the equation.
