OK, THIS REVIEW HAS BEEN REMOVED SEVERAL TIMES SINCE THE 19TH OF FEBRUARY, 2019. I WILL PUT IT UP AGAIN AND AGAIN (AND AGAIN!), SINCE THERE IS NO UNTRUTH IN IT. THANKS TO THE PERSON WHO IS REPORTING IT, DUE TO THIS FACT IT STAYS ON THE TOP OF MY RECENT REVIEWS...

So yet another Nel Mondo Del Lavoro (‘World Of Work’) record, that is dealing with a topic that every grown-up should be familiar with, unless you are out of collar…

This piece clearly belongs into the Industr(y/ial) Library Music category and coincidently it seems to be a much appreciated library topic in general. The term industry in library music does not describe a specific genre, but often there is a similar style that can be recognized. A propulsive, brisk and often thrilling vibe, sometimes with a progressive, driving and mechanical flow. The music was designed to outline situations or scenes like stress, performance pressure, success, manufacturing processes, factories and machinery, but also end of work, relaxation and leisure time.

There are at least a hundred of these type of library records, but this one stands out without a doubt. Even if the mysterious composer Girolamo Ugolini appears on the name tag, most connoisseurs (or should I say nerds?) will agree, that another well-known composer has to be the string puller (literally) behind this project. That certain bone-crushing, striking and emphatic guitar sound can only originate from the great Alessandro Alessandroni. As a matter of fact, even his distinctive whistling can be recognized on some tunes which is another undeniable proof. Some more food for thought: Today, it is widely known, that Oronzo De Filippi and Alessandro Alessandroni are group members of The Braen's Machine. On the first record (Underground) under this moniker, these composers used their pseudonyms Gisteri and Braen and on their second (Temi Ritmici E Dinamici) the pseudonym Awake…and guess what? Right! Girolamo Ugolini. If this wasn’t proof enough, another release (Mostra Collettiva) exists, where all these composers and their pseudonyms appear. Either my speculation is correct, or this is one of the biggest coincidences in the obscure world of Italian libraries...

Whatever your thoughts are, you can’t deny the greatness of this record! For me at least as good/crazy as masterpieces like Ritmo Dell'Industria N°2 or Meccanizzazione, but Nel Mondo Del Lavoro sounds a little more unpolished and raw. And also, a little more versatile. On some tunes Mr. X’s guitar hits harder than ever and reminds of the heaviest stuff from records like Inchiesta Giudiziaria, Quarta Pagina (Poliziesco), Industriale and even Angoscia. The guitar riffs from tunes like Propagazione Meccanica or Ritorsione will make your bones shiver, while Memorie or Soho will relax your muscles after a long and hard working day. This ain’t no joke kid, it’s lavoro music - pure library heaven.

It is funny (or rather amusing?), how many people pretend to own it and rate this release negative when everybody is grudgingly seeking for a physical copy. Nel Mondo Del Lavoro is embedded in so many want lists, that it’s almost a standard. This record deserves a reissue more than Drammatico did, and musically it is much more complex and interesting, too. A proof for the demand of this record is the comment from this youtube video, where a desperately seeking poor soul is offering 1000 Euros (!!!) for a copy...

There are quite a few interesting records with the same (or similar) title by the way:

- Nel Mondo Del Lavoro which is a almost classic Rino de Filippi record
- Nel Mondo Del Lavoro that I consider one of Antonio Ricardo Luciani‘s best records
- Il Monde Del Lavoro with the famous composers Sandro Brugnolini and Stefano Torossi being involved

Other noteworthy records that deal with the similar topic are:

- Lavoro by the great Enzo Scoppa
- Sonorità Nel Lavoro a super heavy session with Silvano Chimenti being responsible partly
- Lavoro E Tempo Libero which seems to be Giuliano Sorgini’s last masterpiece

Very last fun fact (I promise!) is that the cover of this particular record is one of the very few library records covers, that can be viewed from all four angles without looking wrong. Peep over here. The other one I can think of is Visioni and some of those handmade splash covers like Tutto Deve Finire or Come Upstair and maybe the misprinted Teleradiosonory sleeve without lettering.

Excuse my rude language, but if you consider yourself one of those super-hip, all-day-bragging, daddys-big-money-spending, pointless-being Instagrammers, but you have or don’t have a trophy picture of this record up your account by now, you’re still nothing but a dud. You better spend even more thousands of dollars on records that you don’t care about, nor understand. If you feel offended, there's a reason for it.

If you should have read all of this nonsense, you've worked overtime…
