Format: Audio CD
Delirium was an Italian band that released three albums (1971's Dolce Acqua, 1972's Lo Scemo e il Villaggio, and 1974's III - Viaggio Negli Archipelaghi del Tempo) and a bunch of singles. From judging on their music, it seems they've been plagued with inconsistencies, this 1972 album, Lo Scemo e il Villaggio, which was their second album, is no exception. The band seemed pretty torn apart by more pop-oriented stuff geared for a more commercial market and full-on prog rock (New Trolls had been frequently plagued by this problem too around the same time, and even caused a split that spawned Ibis and N.T. Atomic System because of this). Even so, they also made some great prog too, and this album proves it too. It starts off with "Villaggio", a great instrumental piece, with nice sax work and flute, and let's not forget the Mellotron. The raspy vocals on some of the cuts remind me of Jumbo's Alvaro Fella, Stefano "Lupo" Galifi of Museo Rosenbach or Leonardo Sasso of Locanda Delle Fate. Other great pieces include "Gioia, Disordine, Risentimento", "Sogno", and the jazzy "Culto Disarmonico". These are without a doubt the highlights of the album, and I really enjoy the Mellotron used on these pieces, lots of tron strings and brass (it sounds like they used a Mark II). These pieces a bit in the Jethro Tull (especially the flute) and Osanna (especially the sax) vein, but not as aggressive as Osanna, that's for sure. This stuff is sandwiched between shorter, more pop-oriented pieces. "Tremori Antichi", at first I disliked it, especially the choir, but it grew on me. "La Mia Piazza" is a rather upbeat piece that I actually really like, and includes some nice Mellotron work. On the other hand, "Dimensione Uomo" is pretty unforgiving, and even the Mellotron used throughout this piece doesn't save it.Read more ›
