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



Side A:
1. SNAKE - Fight The Dragon Inside
  The keyboards are awfully misplaced and at heart this is a pretty awesome, upbeat semi-epic Metal-hit with a Scandinavian flair. However the usual d.i.y.-ailments brings it down a notch.
2. ITALIAN GROUP - Josephine
  Jazzy pop.
3. SMALLTOWNS - Mary Mary
  Trad. rock'n'roll.
4. STAZIONE CENTRALE - Mister X
  Jazz-rock/fusion.
5. JUKE JOINT BLUES BAND - People Want To Know
  Blues rock (...parody?)

Side B:
1. EVETEARS - Psychedelic Sea
  Alternative pop.
2. CINANO - Prete Nero
  Funky pop-rap.
3. RULLANTE SUL BARATRO - Incontro A Lei
  Alternative pop/rock.
4. ALTER EGO - Wake Up
  Funky alt. pop w/ fem vox and unfortunately not the guys who did the solid "Poker" EP a few years earlier :(
5. G.B. BAND - Son Contento
  Jazz-pop.
