BATTISTI AT HIS BEST

(5 out of 5 stars)
"As I wrote in a previous review to the CD Emozioni, Battisti's music and lyrics are the best reason for learning italian. But even if you didn't grow up singing his songs, you might not want to miss the sheer poetry and rythim of this record. This was the last LP that the duo Battisti and Mogol (lyrics) made together.
Sadly it is also his final outstanding contribution to music, because the magic was lost or transformed when their cooperation ended. Subsecuent records, without Mogol's writing, do not express Battisti's genius.
So, if you are looking for a masterpiece and the precise music for times of sorrow and happiness, for introspection and revelation, you will find a song in this CD that suits all those moods that are so difficult to express and relive, were it not for Battisti.
For instance, if you love the colours and hues of Toscana or Provence, or if you have loved in these places, it will be impossible not to find yourself there again, in real time, listening to the song Amore Mio di Provincia. And if you have debated with yourself about the strength of the first bursts and sensations of a new love, the uncertainty of its future and the need to live forever, once again, the burning sensation, then you can sing Con il Nastro Rosa.
LUCIO, SEI PARTITO, MA NOI, TREPIDANTEMENTE, TI SENTIAMO ANCORA OGNI GIORNO. ARRIVEDERCI AD UN ALTRA SERA......."

"Though years ago Lucio passed away years ago, his music still is as fresh as a lettuce. If you love ballads don't miss Battistis's Orgoglio e Dignita, Questo amore and Gellosa Cara. Is like fresh air running through your hair in a summer night. You will find that Una Giornata Uggiosa (A rainy day) is in fact a perfect sunny day."
