5 stars A landmark album: progressive rock meets balkan traditional music that meets jazz rock. Maybe the most important italian album of the '70. A left wing group, their lyrics deal with politics: the fantastic "Arbeit macht Frei" is named after the tragic nazi write upon the entrance od Auschwitz, a sad parable of the destiny of humanity under the law of capitalism. "Luglio, agosto, settembre nero" ("July, august, black september") is about the black september of '72 with the palestinian terroristic attacks, and begins with an arab voice... So beware if you don't know what you neighbours think about the question. Peace!
