CD Reviews

Classic Italian Avant Garde
Herb Atlas | Chicago IL | 06/08/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Battiato's fourth album saw a release on Island UK (albeit in altered form) and it's easy to see why: there's more atmosphere here than most other "ambient" recordings of the era. Battiato combines synths, piano, electronics, voices, tapes into a musique concrete of effortless, hypnotic music. All the adjectives you can muster - dreamy, floating, avant, etc.. - they're all here. At this price, what are you waiting for???!"
Franco Battiaco - 'Clic' (Artis Records) 3 1/2 stars

"Originally released in 1974, until just recently, I've never even remotely heard of this Italian musician, composer, artist, etc. A friend lent me this disc. Best described as electronic / experimental pop. Tunes here that somewhat impressed me were the inventive "No U Turn", "Propiedad Prohibida" {featuring some good electronic sounds in the background} and "Ethika Fon Ethica" which appears to be like a sound compilation of commercials, radio advertisements,etc. - quite novel, really. Might appeal to fans of Terry Riley, Brian Eno, Manuel Gottsching and Vangelis."
