Way back in 1996 I got to hear Acqua Fragile's second and final album Mass-Media Stars and didn't like it all that much. I had a real problem with Bernardo Lanzetti's heavily accented and harsh vocals. But over ten years later I got to hear this album again and it had really grew on me big time since and I now even find it better than their debut. Originally I preferred their debut over this one because the vocals didn't seem as intrusive (they were still harsh and heavily accented but not as much as Mass-Media Stars). Strange how my attitude changed towards this album in over ten years.

Mass-Media Stars was originally released in 1974 on the Dischi Ricordi label, but also released in the U.S. on the long defunct Import label (presumably around 1978, as I don't think the label existed prior to 1976), likely to drive home the PFM connection, since the album was produced by PFM and Claudio Fabi, and Bernardo Lanzetti would join the group after this album for Chocolate Kings, Jet Lag, and Passpartu. Both the Italian and American pressings aren't that much different, aside from label. They both included a lyrics inner sleeve, with the original English lyrics, and translations into Italian. Strangely this album also received a Venezuelan pressing, oddly (since I didn't realize the label had a license to operate out of Italy) on Dischi Ricordi in 1976 (label looks much the same, except it was blue and black, rather than orange and black, and the song listings are in Spanish).

Well, Acqua Fragile went for an even more progressive direction for Mass-Media Stars with less emphasis on acoustic stuff, more emphasizing electric instruments (although acoustic guitar is still used).
