The Sorrenti brothers' musical careers, Jenny and Alan, have three elements
in common at least: the unconventional use of the voice as an instrument, a
wonderful debut album (respectively, the eponymous Saint Just's LP and
"Aria") and the subsequent 'second album syndrome' that depicted their
sophomore efforts as inferior to their predecessors, by an unfair and
demeaning comparison.
This is "Come un vecchio incensiere..." indeed: a record that renews the
formula of "Aria", with the long and complex 23-minute title-track on the B
side, that extremes even more the 'free' and delirious elements than in the
past, both musically and vocally. A work, therefore, which is absolutely
'progressive', but inexplicably and wrongly considered a minor second
chapter, by some also a first step
