Hardrock/Psychedelic/Blues/Progressive !??

"Sirio 2222" was one of the best albums released in Italy prior to 1971.This is raw-edged,intelligent,Heavy Progressive/Psychedelic rock at its absolute best - fronted by Lino Ajello's powerful electric guitars and an enthusiastic vocalist.Even a slightest blues influence wasn't common for Italian bands at the time.Only a couple of the nine tracks on the album are longer than 4 minutes,but their overwhelming power and great melodies make them irresistible.On "Meditazione",a string quartet and harpsichord add uncommon elements to their music.The sound is dominated by fuzzed-out guitar,with primary influences seeming to be Jimi Hendrix.The songs are for the most part straightforward hard rock tunes,with an occasionally pretty,Mediterranean-ish melodic sense coming through,such as on "Mission Sirio 2222",which also contains some of the album's most intense,guitar shredding moments,and the compact,tuneful "Ti Risveglierai con Me".
