CONTENT
(bold = exclusive track / normal = non-exclusive track / italic = non-metal)



Side A:
1. PECHINO POLITIC - Closer To Me
  aor/melodic rock.
2. ROSE GARDEN - Rose Garden
  The Cure?
3. TOUCH OF DEVIL - Metal Power
  Upbeat, anthemic HM sounding shitloads like Accept and thus being brilliant! No really, this is an outstanding song.
4. MYSTIC DESIGN - Starting From Zero
  aor/fm rock.
5. FIL DI FERRO - Hurricanes
  Solid 80's Hard Rock. Not too wimpy or anything, just sounding very bland to these ears. Different from LP version.
6. LIFE BANQUET - Smile
  Pop.

Side B:
1. FUTURITMI - L'Aviatore
  Pop.
2. OVERLOAD - Blue Snakes
  Pretty sweet B52's-sounding pop-wave. (sorry for being untrue):
3. CROSSBONES - The Snowman
  Melodic Metal with almost as much class as their later LP on the same label.
4. MICCO BENI - Girl From The Rodeo
  New wave/pop.
5. BLACK SWAN - Metal Roads
  A real cool surprise - think later Maiden at their most epic! Would love to learn more about these guys. (no releation to a now-active, Italian "power metal" band w/ the same name)
