* 180g pressing, Coloured vinyl, numbered edition of 600 copies * One of the most elegantly complex and fully realized of the "difficult" Italian classics. Cervello was a band from Naples like Osanna, and each band had a brother in it. Melos, originally released in 1973, is a stunning combination of primarily guitars, flutes and saxes are tightly woven into a very dense, often dark, unsettling, and just plain eerie feel. There is great deal of excellent acoustic guitar work and mellotron-like sounds created by the saxophones. The vocals coupled with the acoustic guitar and flutes hypnotize the listener into a technical yet fluid atmosphere so the music then breaks into a frenzy full of sax and adventurous guitar playing. Variety of timbre and texture are important components of the album's sound-scape as vibes and pure toned flutes and recorders alternate with the electric instrument.
