Mad Puppet - Not Only Mad (1991)

The second album from this Italian band.

Their debut album was not particular impressive and the band follows up that album with a new attempt of winning me over.

The band is a five piece on this album with a lineup of clarinet, bass, drums, percussions, guitars, synths and English vocals.

We are nominally talking neo-prog here. Nominally because this album is much more in the pop-rock vein than in the neo-prog vein. Eight light hearted bubblegum like songs in the new romantics vein and a couple of more proggy songs.

The result is almost a turkey. But the seven minutes long You is not too bad and saves their bacon. It is still worth avoiding this album.

1.5 points
