After 2 years from her last work, Fiorella Mannoia is back with a new studio album entitled "Combattente" (Warrior). An album where she explains her will to fight for love, an idea, injustice and for the right to be happy. "Combattente" contains many collaboration: Ivano Fossati, Giuliano Sangiorgi, Federica Abbate, Cheope, Fabrizio Moro, Amara.
Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
Although admittedly a posthumous release, I was very surprised at the rather dismissive tenor of many of the reviews of this album to date. Hopefully this record will be reappraised soon as being a release worthy of anyone's consideration as I feel it does enhance an already rich legacy left behind by this very fine and innovative band. (So what if Charisma wanted to ride the slipstream of the lucrative ELP juggernaut?)
Essential: A masterpiece of psych-rock music collection.
Vanilla Fudge are a pioneering psychedelic band with a superb lineup and are famous for psyching up well known cover versions. Their debut albums features some of their best and most popular material such as the stunning' You Keep Me Hanging On', 'Eleanor Rigby' and 'She's Not There'.
