  1. RIP Francesco Di Giacomo (vocalist) 00:00 Canto nomade per un prigioniero politico (Nomad song for a political prisoner) 15:45 Non mi rompete ( Leave me alone...literally "don't break me"...) 20:52 La città sottile ( Subtle city) 28:04 Dopo... niente è più lo stesso ( Afterwards...Nothing is the same anymore) 37:59 Traccia II ( Track II) Francesco Di Giacomo / lead vocals - Marcello Todaro / electric & acoustic guitars - Gianni Nocenzi / electric & acoustic pianos - Vittorio Nocenzi / organ, spinet, synths - Renato D'Angelo / bass, acoustic guitar - Pier Luigi Calderoni / drums, percussion Review by loserboy PROG REVIEWER Now here is a great recording that will please all fans of Italian Prog. Sophisticated yet delicately beautiful tension building prog with a touch of the ol' psycho - bizarre. This is in my opinion BANCO's finest hour with amazing keyboard work. "Non Mi Rompete" is one of my all time favorite progressive rock tracks as it reaches out with a very sweet spirtual element. This is pure classic prog of the highest intelligence which will please all fans of PFM and Le ORME. "Io Sona nato libero" is a complete recording and offers a wide range from the organ drenched materpiece "Canto Nomande Per Un Prigioniero Politico" the acoustic guitar Soliloquy "Non Mi Rompete". Once again all the lyrics are in Italian so be warned for those who are linguistic-centric! For the rest this will be an album of choice. What always stands out for me on this album is the amount of classical piano used and how well it mixes witht eh rest of the instruments. Fabulous music.....It is essential! umb's note: Saw them twice......Great Concerts .....Talented musicians....One of their secrets is the 2 keyboards players ( Nocenzi Bros.) Canto nomade...Nomad chant for a political prisoner What are you, city, non-city? Lyrics start of " Subtle city" Non mi rompete ( leave me alone) Dopo ..Niente e' piu' lo stesso ( afterwards..Nothing is the same anymore)
