Pineal Gland (PG 006)
The album starts off with the almost 11-minute "Osesso" and it's a real trip indeed. Pierro's solo guitar work brings to mind Nick Saloman from The Bevis Frond and is the best part in his music. "Opporti A Me Non E Mai Troppo" is another slow acid blues rock number. On "Allunare Era Nulla" Piero gets more spacey and goes to the Moon. The track also has some more prorgessive stuff in there. "A Valle Tra Masse Essa Martellava" has a droney beginning and then it goes into a bit mystical, sort of oriental vibe. Nice! The shortest track on the CD is "E'corta e Atroce" at 3:25 beginning with some experimental keyboards until the acid solo guitar work takes control again. "Arte Tetra" is a sort of weird, almost jazzy/fusion thing with cleaner guitar sound than usual. The album is finished with "Eterni Attici Di Citta In Rete" and it must be the most beautiful track on the CD. If you can dig the bit cheesy programmed beats this is a very enjoyable album. Personally, I would really like to hear Piero as a lead guitarist of a real live band, that would be awesome.
