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



Side A:
1. TIPI FUNKY - Tipo Funky
  Funk rock.
2. JIMMY BAND - T'amo Pio Buio
  A laugh-out-loud ridiculous keyboard start off what shortly after turns into a fine Hard Rock tune with some great vocals and nice nwobhm'y twin lead bits. And a sax solo.
3. BIG BROTHER'S BAND - Blues Vidal
  Blues rock.
4. Dr. FAUST & THE COFFEE HOUSE BROTHERS - Suck My Biberon
  Trad R'n'R.
5. LAUGHING SAM'S DICE - Libertà
  Rock ballad.
6. PERIZOMA - Se Ti Mouri
  Jerky new wave/post-punk with fem vox and some really cool eastern/"camelback" riffing.

Side B:
1. CROM - No Apartheid
  Slough-Feg-meets-classic-Maiden guitar-riff-Metal sounding very Italian still. Lke a more epic Hocculta or Shining Blade perhaps?
2. TEGEN HART - Surfin' In Time
  I first read the title as "Surfin' Time" and was pretty bummed that the chose a Beach Boys cover for this album. Luckily that wasn't the case and I'm happy to report it's the same atmospheric yet catchy meta-Metal here as on their superb "Noise Underground" LP from the same year, possibly a tad less progsy.
3. AXE - Salvati Uomo
  Pure Mythra/TOPT NWOBHM Speed-Rock, delightfully dated.
4. PUBS - When I Was Twenty Four
  A total disaster of a blues ballad.
5. MIRIORAMA - Estasi Fatale
  Schmalzy alternative pop.
6. CROSSROADS - Level Crossing
  Acustic singer/songwriter stuff.
