Comment: La bèl is an Italian imprint having been releasing music since 2010. All their artists with some exceptions are being Italian even if the artist's residence has been outside the country's borders. Musically it has embraced a huge range of styles from witty electronica and subtle indie and folk mixed electronic music to artsy electro-acoustic progressions and epic post-rock driven ambience. Go Ask Alice's Perfection Is Terrible is a subsequent solid chapter within the discography by getting hold of different styles of the kind of synthesiser and guitar-driven music. Furthermore, the result is blissful thanks to some cinematic development as if being languished by the sun during a very hot summer day. You do not have enough power and verve but just lay back in the hammock. Let's call it the sort of guitar-based chill out music. With regard to exploiting or imitating such instruments as glockenspiel/vibraphone you can discern some similarities with such artists as Talk Talk, Mice Parade, The Dylan Group, Tortoise, The Mercury Program though Go Ask Alice's music is distinctively more hovering and volatile. Besides the aforementioned elements there are also magniloquent elements yet the result is pushed to the very limits of elegance. Last but not least – there is up a track imbued with a hook of great pop potential (Morning). In a word, it runs head-to-head with the best issues from the recent year. Behind the project are such musicians as Flavio Moro and Lorenzo Albanese, and Valerio Occhiodoro. Undoubtedly this sprightly 7-track outing is one of the most favourite albums from the recent year.
