AllMusic Review by

After their 1984 album, Aprirsi Nel Silenzio, was reissued on Wallace Records, Tasaday chose the Italian label to release their new album, Con Il Corpo Crivellato di Stelle. The first thing that strikes the listener is the production, with full bass in the low frequencies, high and sharp guitars, and drums that do not sound like percussion. But this evolution is also the consequence of changes in the compositions. Instead of filling themselves up in the chaotic magma from which their songs emerged, the members of Tasaday seem to have made this ultra-creative bouillon thinner. From the first track, listeners feel that a certain maturity has come and that a knowledge now guides the bandmembers, letting them develop each idea one at a time. Unfortunately, this results in a loss of unity throughout the album, although there is a gain in diversity. Another flagrant thing is the loss of permanent tension, as if Tasaday has become more serene. Listeners can also guess that post-rock music has passed through their ears, revealing itself as a support to their evolution.
