Title: The Stones Of Naples
Format: CD
Label: Prikosnovenie (@)
Distributor: Anticraft
Rated: *****
One year and half after "Volonta' D'Arte", Riccardo Prencipe is back with a new Corde Oblique album. This time on THE STONES OF NAPLES we have twelve tracks that sound less intimate paragoned to the ones of the previous album or to be more precise, there's a better balance between upbeat songs (with beautiful orchestrations, drums and charming female vocals), piano/acoustic guitar duets or guitar classical pieces (like the closing "Piscina Mirabilis"). Often we have songs that start quietly with guitar and female vocals just to blast thanks to the adding of drums, violin, percussions and bass. On THE STONES OF NAPLES we have different faces of Mediterranean folk music where traditional melodies/instruments are enriched also by pop sensibility like on "La gente che resta" or on "Venti di sale.
