4 stars Don't get deceived with the first delightful and groovy song "Atomic Deja Vu". :)

MARY NEWSLETTER would shoot a dreamy d'j' vu via this whole album world. Just after such a pop, catchy one, the real psychedelic world by an Italian superior combo has been waiting for us. "Ah ... Sssch!" is a heavy, dark rock world with a bit Krauty experimentalism here and there. Impressive are dark guitar footsteps and slimy chorus ... along with ethnic flavoured beats / melody line. In the following one "Andrea Emo ..." we can get drenched in electronic deep dread kicks and enthusiastically plaintive solo voices. Exactly into a dream flooded with a mixture of a dramatic "rock" and a magical mystery tour.

"Dovuti Effetti Di Una Sola Causa" is kinda electro-hypnotic space rock tinged with crazy ethnic beats and magical spellings or something. Electric percussion gives us comfort and superior grooves. Whilst the last phrase sounds like a hard edged rock blaster, a very colourful one. "Neon" is one of the most interesting, most Italian-charactered one, with brilliant sound squeezes and wacky, warped dark ambience. On the contrary, the following titled track "Del Perduto Coraggio" consists of Kraut-ish experimental guitar chase-game and metronomic rhythms electronica ... flooded with their experimentalism, an addictive one that grabs our heart obviously.

"Amica Venus" might be created with heavy rock riffs blended with delightful chorus and psychedelic but dramatic sound mysteries. The heavy guitar solo sounds sooo enthusiastic enough to drive us crazy into Italian psychedelic atmosphere. "Wittgestein 31" is another stable space rock like Hawkwind with sensitive word sounds and electronic slices ... and we get awake in a sound of a strawberry alarm clock. Through the reprise of "Deja Vu", we get serious again in front of the real world via such a dark, deep, heavy quake "Prospettiva Nevski".

In this album "Del Perduto Coraggio" (and the splendid sleeve!) we can understand another appearance of RPI in MARY NEWSLETTER. Yes cannot call them as a typical RPI combo but simultaneously cannot avoid them in RPI scene at all. Listen.
