The recording to me is pretty modern sounding, think Calibro 35 as far as recording quality goes, but the style is very retro and true to the Italian librarys of the 70's & 80's. The record starts with "Chimera" a beautiful acoustic guitar and harpsichord intro that falls into heavy compressed hip hop beats with super italian harmonies over the top. THis is followed by, "Vigilate" and "Scenario" dope poliziotteschi style jams with heavy beats and wah fuzz guitar. Next they take a step towards electro with, "Formula" which sounds like it would fit any number of Italian horror movies. "Manifesto" is a complete rocker full of female scat vocals and heavy riffs, "Dilemma" is a proggy Italian monster. "Incognito" even has a De Roubaix meets poliziotteschi style. THe album closes with "Persona Non Grata" a nice resemblance to Cipriani classics for sure with its repeating harpsichord and heavy beats.

My two favorite jams on this are A5 "Insegne Luminose" one of the finest prog disco songs I've ever heard, has all the goods, female scats, fuzz, driving beats and dark bass lines. This song is followed by A6 "Autodromo" which at times reminds me of King Zerand scoring the Cannibal Apocalypse OST. Other notable jams are, "Leitmotiv N.1" and "Passeggiando" but really they are all amazing.
This one's on the same label as Fallabrino's "Musica Nella Spazio" which sells for mega bucks so don't assume it will remain cheap, every library record started off cheap don't forget, but who knows maybe I just have bad taste, haha. My Full 320K rip from my collection and please behave yourselves and don't leach my rip or youtube links as your own, though I know some of you still will, haha. GET IT HERE Chris Tillotson
