Comment: it is a subsequent issue by an Italian artist, Roberto Daglio to appear on the blog. Daglio's music is always different, always the same. It is always sultry and serene and deliberately retrodelic yet synthesising new elements into a mix. The listener can feel himself like standing somewhere under the cloudless sky while the Sun standing at the zenith and above all. Yet it is a hyper-realistic experience because you are not exhausted by sweating on humid conditions. However, Wintherpole and Steel Drops are exceptions of the 8-track composition due to a heavy, even slamming guitar handling in the beginning of the tracks. Yet in the middle you can hear more meandering and immersive trajectories up there being played on an electric guitar. A third exception is Sometimes In The Rain (Swing Up) based on a classical jazz standard yet it chimes in a refreshing way. In other tracks you can enjoy pastel drawings on the electric guitar and electronic keyboards while being supported by propulsive bass lines. In a word, the result rocks in the way a righteous fusion album should sound. Yeah, it's playful, it's joyous, it's ennobling. And paradoxically it is not bitter at all.
