4 stars CD1 (Studio e Unplugged) contains one new song, "Nudo", and acoustic versions of some band's classics. "Nudo" is a 3-part 15 minute track with some modern sounds, quite in the vein of BANCO previous release, "Il 13". Acoustic versions are interesting for BANCO fans, but I can't recommend them to newcomers, because IMO some songs, especially "RIP", lose some of their magic and energy. From other hand, songs like "E mi vieni da pensari" and "750.000 anni fa... l'amore?" sound beautifully. I think 3 stars is enough for CD1.

CD2 (Live) presents live recordings, mostly from 1997 Japan concerts. Despite the fact that songs were taken from different shows they sound like one concert. The set of songs, performance and sound quality are excellent and deserve 5 stars (so my total rating is 4 stars). These live recordings have also been released as a separate CD "Nudo Live".
