1978 Gli dei se ne vanno, gli arrabbiati restano! ("The gods depart, the angry remain!") is the sixth album of the Jazz fusion band Area and was released in 1978, as the title says. It is the first album without guitarist Paolo Tofani, and it is also the first album whose lyrics were not written by Gianni Sassi. Also, noticeably it is the only album in which Demetrio Stratos is credited as a composer.Area has stripped their sound a bit. Not drastically, but the experimental, avant-garde and fusion elements of the sound are slightly toned down a bit in favour of Demetrio Stratos' vocals and more accessible and funky song writing. That doesn't mean Area has turned pop or mellow, they are still more then weird and quirky enough to please all their fans, but somehow they seem to enjoy themselves more then they ever did before. The lighter tone of the songs and the Zappa-esque humour intrusions demonstrate that amply.

The playful tone and accessibility of the album makes it a close companion to the Crac! album and I'd say it's every bit as good. Too bad tragedy struck this band when Demetrio Stratos died of cancer. I'd really have loved to hear his answer to the 80's.
