Masters ' book consisted Kenshi Kamaro - Fall & Rise fictional epitaphs delivered by the dead themselves, succinctly summarizing their hollow lives, effectively creating an unscathing collective fresco of the American small town and small-minded society. As a result, there is a brighter, sardonic gait to most of this record highlighted by the ubiquitous use of flute that contrasts with the solemn tone of before.
Several tracks are closer to a pop song format rather than to a suite piece, and can stand on their own independently. The story of a young boy born with a heart deficiency who dies after being given his first kiss, this is a song that is literally heartbreaking.
Mention should also be made of the haunting leadoff track "Dormono Sulla Collina" that -- just like in the book -- introduces and synthesizes the entire project. Spoon Rivers Anthology was introduced to Italian culture in the '40s thanks to the courageous effort of translator Fernanda Pivano, and became a cult book among Italian youth and intelligentsia. Those fortunate enough to understand the nuances of both the English and Italian versions would find it Un Blasfemo - Fabrizio De André - Non Al Denaro Non AllAmore Nè Al Cielo hard not to agree with her, and that is just about the highest compliment one can pay to this extraordinary album.
