The 3rd outing from this adventurous Italian band delivers a sleek, dark sound characterized by
sensitive operatic vocals, sprinklings of funky fusion, and miles upon miles of rock-solid,
infectious groove. Ambient segues recalling Dead Can Dance (Elogio del Dubbio) fuse seamlessly
with Zeuhl-like flights of rhythmic fury and atmospheric jazzy passages. The wildly varied
whirlwind of an opener is worth the price of admission alone and the playful album centerpiece
"Architettura Dell'Acqua" is every bit as jam-packed with expansive, symphonic Orff-ian bombast as
any of the territory covered on Mekanïk Destruktïẁ Kommandöh. That is not to say, however, that
any of the other songs should be skipped!

If operatic vocals are not an immediate deterrent (I find them to be tastefully employed here),
UTO's creative arrangements and superb instrumental interplay are bound to leave you floored.
