Italy, 1975, avant-prog / progressive rock
Area – Crac!: This is really all over the place, manic in its erratic explorations. Often wavering, playful non-lyrical vocals garnish the complex, driving instrumentals. “Driving” is the key word here, because these songs have some place to be, and they’re racing toward their destination. Except when they don’t. The meandering is exquisite, as well. I don’t know what Area 5 is, but damn I wanna go there!
