Italy, 1974, progressive rock

Biglietto per l’InfernoBiglietto per l’Inferno: I like listening to Italian music with my wife. She grew up in Rome, so I can always get the inside scoop on the lyrics, which is what is interesting here since when the album started, I thought what airy, fun tunes it was, when in fact the lyrics were about murder, suicide, and other dark topics. I mean, the album title is “A Ticket for Hell.” All right. I like that kind of juxtaposition. The music is pretty tame, but there are moments of real fire, and they usually involve the flute playing off a hard guitar.

  1. I always enjoy listening to Italian music with you, too, though I should hate to be examined by a true proficient.
