This four-song single from Zucchero sounds like a cross between Peter Gabriel and Don Henley. Of course, it not only sounds like these two, but it's also entirely in Italian, which adds a whole new dimension. The title track is the most impressive track, filled with bizarre samples and Zucchero's raspy wail laid over a bed of lush keyboards. "Così Celeste" has an impressive gospel flavor that keeps it from sinking into averageness, while the other two songs are decent but otherwise unspectacular. This is an inexpensive way to hear Zucchero for the first time, but for longtime fans there is nothing here that can't be found elsewhere.
