Lorenzo Jovanotti Cherubini / Italia 1988-2012/ATO
Although he is considered as Italy’s first “rapper”, this anthology of songs collected between 1988-2012 shouldn’t be considered as hip hop. The album has some acoustic songs and rock as well. All songs are in Italian with the exception of 3 which is in English and 7 in Spanish. My favorite song is 1 (by far). 2 is pretty jamming too. I had the cd signed by Jovanotti who was gracious with his on-air performance and interview with Sunshine for KZSU at our tent at Outside Lands. Per favore, Non vendere su ebay!!! NO FCC’s Tracks 1,2
1- 2:53*** Mid tempo. Gnawa type beat. Occasional drop of a bass with great vocals. AWESOME
2- 3:22** Up Tempo. Driving drums with fat bass line slick vocals almost chant style (call without response). nice driving rock guitar.
3- 2:44 Mellow. You shouldn’t hire a plumber to install your electricity. Stick to Italian. Cute chorus with female vocals.
4- 4:33 Mid to mellow. Pretty straight forward with acoustic strumming. not recommended.
5- 4:11* Upper tempo. Cool beat and bass line and nice rap vocals. Some harmonica around 1:18
6- 3:58 Acoustic guitar and vocals. Mid to up tempo. Flamenco feel with the strumming.
7- 4:06 Starts with cool woodwind section intro until :38. Then turns into up tempo surf-rock-ish tune
8- 3:20* mid tempo Hip hop jam done in a Spearhead-ish fashion. Clean beat.
9- 3:31 Up tempo indie rock tune.
10-1:51 Old school TR-808 beat. Old school rap.
11-2:48 mellow acoustic. pretty song. pretty hard to shed any tears when you can’t understand him.
12-4:29 not recommended (by me, anyway) song ends early
13-5:09 down tempo. didgeridoo and nature sounds intro then goes into hip hop beat and rap at 1:27
