Premiata Forneria Marconi - Come Ti Va In Riva Alla Città (1981)
The eleventh album from this Italian band.
Premiata Forneria Marconi (PFM) was a quartet on this album with a lineup of mandocello, guitars, bass, drums, synths, violin and vocals.
PFM started out as a beat band before becoming a prog rock band who released some brilliant albums. Then they moved on from the dead prog rock genre and to something else.
The band was starting their midlife crisis with this album.
The music on this album is a mix of pop and rock. Lots of socalled catchy music with a dreadful 1980s sound and even worse clothes. I have seen videos and they are gruesome. Almost as gruesome as the music.
Which says a lot.
This album is very dire and an addition to my collection of turkeys. A worthy addition indeed. Avoid this album at all costs.
