Comment: all the music Livorno, Italy-based artist Massimo Ruberti has been creating is wonderful. On the other side, the quality is not changed worse while he has changed the nature and pace of his music over the years. It may be even more adequate to admit the changes have been organic and made step by step so one feels difference and an analogous appearance at the same time. While listening to this 4-notch release I have to assume Massimo Ruberti has added a clear pop inflicted tendency to his sound though doing it in his own particular way. It may be considered inevitable and organic if an experimental artist has explored many kind of finesse through the sound and thereafter tries to test his/her craftiness by creating a sublime pop sound. Here we are, at a sultry crossroad of world music, smooth jazz, ambient pop, sophisti-pop and synth-pop. Smooth jazz as a style is frequently signified as superficial and slight though in the recent context the aforementioned adjectives are turned off. A dominant thread is an adept employing of singing and vowel effects it is something I have a little encountered in the artist's oeuvre. Bombastic yet profound orchestrations used to alternate with loose Kosmische and psychedelic ambient drenched synths and at times more minimal rhythms play predominant role. Robots are also represented over there by denoting a transitional time span when Kraftwerk changed from a motorik krautrock combo into an electro and techno pop juggernaut somewhere between 1973-74. The other aspect is related to an esoteric impression as if one is dwelling in the middle of a rain forest and being a thousands of miles away from the civilization. Especially it can be heard at Wilderness. The release which undoubtedly makes difference is a part of the discography of Nostress, an Italian imprint.
