LC (Lotta Continua) was not an anarchist slogan but an italian extra parliament comunist movement very popular amongst young people during the 70's.

I agree with mundayschild, this is a wonderful album which certainly rivals "The Return Of..." in terms of ethereal beauty and serenity. Seems to be a kind of "missing link" album in my mind between lots of different styles - the presence of vocals and the somewhat lo-fi production values give it a shoegaze/dreampop feel, while it is still certainly in the realm of Vini's trademark post-punk-jazzguitar-indie rock sound. Very good.

It's a matter of opinion but some people really do have cloth ears. This LP contains the wonderfully melancholic 'Never Known' with it's gentle guitar picking and drum machine phasing. A timeless piece of music. Overall this is a pleasant and gentle LP.

Despite the courtesy of adding meat to the proverbial bones of Vini Reilly’s skeletal guitar sketches and inaudible befuddling attempt at vocals. This second release is still an entirely vacuous experience through the non-Hannettised chorused piano tinkles and ineffective drums and still sounding as brittle as he would be in a fight. D
