That is they cut back on experimentation (I still love Caution: Radiation Area, though, as all their albums on the Cramps label) and stuck mainly with incredible, mindblowing fusion playing. Demetrio Stratos providing his usual demented vocals and vocalization. Crac! only proves that Area was simply one of the finest prog/fusion acts ever. Their openly communist political views certainly hardly detracts from my enjoyment of their music (as I realize politics can turn off many people).

Album Name Crac! Type Album. 5. Gioia e Rivoluzione. Other productions from Area.

Crac! is the third studio album by Area and was released in 1975. Crac! is a standout album in jazz-fusion, avant-garde and progressive rock scenes, yet somehow neither genre would appropriately classify its music. They cut back on experimentation and stuck mainly with their incredible, unique and mind blowing fusion playing.

La Mela Di Odessa (1920). Demetrio Stratos - Vocals, organ, clavicembalo, steel drums, percussion. Ares Tavolazzi - Acoustic bass, electric bass,trombone.

The third mid-'70s album from Italy's progresssive rock forerunners Area originally appeared on the experimental Cramps label and is reissued here for the first time. Favoring incredibly complex rhythms à la King Crimson, the group's fusion of folk and ethnic music, leftist political diatribe, and free jazz and hard rock coalesces into a distinctive sound further accented by the abstractions of vocalist Demitrio Stratos.
