"An invented language, deliberately without any semantic value, in order to create phonetic deceptions and assonance able to evocate real idioms coming from disparate latitudes of human geography. All this accompanied by a suspended and unpredictable musical language. Massimo Giuntoli continues his path of exploration of the controversial relationship between text and music, coming through to F.I.T. (Found in Translation) to an improbable universal language that makes fun of borders on earth traced by the most evolved species of our planet and of the concept of "foreigner" that is deeply rooted in the contemporary man's society.

Living in an era of all at once, this CD could result, at first listening too esoteric for a distract listeners. I won't tell you  that its music is easy to decrypt as the title could suggest. Who already knows Massimo Giuntoli, can imagine that we can't expect anything simple from him, without a minimal touch of conceptualization. F.I.T. is  a work moving out of the standards with a lot of  assonance to the most experimental prog world, were listener could think to hear some words or phrases joining meaning and significance. It's an illusion. Behind the elusive Molkayan language (and culture) Massimo breaks conventions  and creates short circuits for listeners who try to give a meaning to words that don't have any. So finally they become accomplices to the artist trying to create stories in order to interpret words and music. This brings them to break the barriers between the artist and his public.

This work is a pure paradox and in the meantime the most accessible work of M.G., bypassing the idea of the voice bearing unidirectional messages. Instead Massimo Giuntoli's voice acts like an instrument that evokes all kinds of emotions in a record that will remain a mysterious and unattainable brain teaser. The voice, remembering the one of Robert Wyatt,  goes through all the record (sustained by a music texture similar to a schizophrenic Philip Glass born in Canterbury) giving us the opportunity to listen to every single variation. An absolutely original record." - Antonio De Sarno (Open Magazine)
