Album of the Day

Lavori in Corso, by D.F.A. (1997): "Lavori in corso" means "works in progress," which is a pretty good description of D.F.A. (aka Duty Free Area) at that time. They were still finding their feet, although it's an awful lot of fun listening to them shuffling along. Musically, this is prime Italian prog/fusion, full of intricate playing and energy. Unfortunately, the production is fairly muddy and the band was till trying to work vocals into most tracks. They're not bad, but they don't add much (although the muddy production doesn't help matters).
