Battisti's orchestral breakthrough

""Umanamente uomo: Il sogno" (Humanly human: The dream) consecrated Battisti at the dawn of the 70's in a dimension superior to his first masterpieces. The arrangements, one of Battisti's sweetest obsessions, sounded finally majestic in this wide breath album. Many of the songs here will be classics of Italian culture. They include the melancholic "I giardini di Marzo" (March gardens), the exciting "Innocenti evasioni" (Innocent escapades) centered on a love affair well rhythmed by a great bass guitar tempo, "E penso a te" (And I think of you) a love monologue suddenly interrupted by an orchestral choir. The album contains other beautiful songs. Two of them deserve attention because "Sognando e risognando" (Dreaming and re-dreaming) has since remained in the world of the underrated gems (its rhythm and choice of chords deserve more attention), and "Il fuoco" (The fire) stands alone almost as an alien in Mr. Battisti's production in a mysterious experimental playing never attempted again. Highly recommended."
