The debut album by Italian rocker Luciano Ligabue clearly announced the arrival of a major talent. Recorded with Clan Destino, the backup band Ligabue would use for his first three records, all of the elements of his style are already in place in this collection of tales of outcasts and dreamers from the provinces. Even if Angelo Carrara's production may not have aged so gracefully, and Ligabue's vocals and arrangements appear a little raw at times, almost every song in this album has become a Ligabue classic, from live staples such as the rockers "Balliamo Sul Mondo" and "Bambolina e Barracuda" to ballads that showcase his more sensitive side, such as "Piccola Stella Senza Cielo" and "Non è Tempo per Noi."
