Comment: this album is a sequent example of seminal soil in Italy to create music with grandeur and style. As we know very well Italians are the godfathers of noise and electro (house/disco) music, but also having contributed immensely to industrial and progressive and music and soundtracks. Alessio Bressan`s 7-notch release used to touch the tradition of the latter with regard to exploiting (deep) house music to mix it seamlessly to indie and post-rock-tinged music which in turn does have occasional dodges towards dream pop, shoegaze, baroque pop (for example, at Away). Twowt is a way between droning and microscopic orchestrated arrangements which eventually results in something overwhelmingly epic and majestic. However, the final part of it seems to depict something more bucolic and rustic. As a contrast, it makes fairly sense. At times one can find out parallels with artists being released on Morr Music, at times with the likes of Seefeel, Autocreation and Locust, at times with the likes of Atlas Sound and Tangerine Dream yet Bressan has his own proper handwriting. All the aforementioned elements of experimentation are very poignantly counterpointed by sublime harmonies and lofty progressions. That`s all what we need actually for, isn`t. For me, it is a formula for ideal pop music. This staggering ghost is a part of the discography of 51 Beats.
