Campi Magnetici features eight recordings by classical vocalist Franco Battiato. The vocalist is Italian and is consistent with the country's classical vocal tradition. However, Battiato doesn't revel in light-hearted subject matter, instead taking a skewed look at humanity and articulating this look in songs with such suggestive titles as "The Age of Hermaphrodites." Most of the songs on this album are quite epic as well as slightly disturbing, only one clocking under five minutes.
