Album Review

Italian pop vocalist Alex Baroni teams up with a number of electronica musicians for Ultimamente, resulting in a sort of cutting-edge electro-pop album. It's a strange compromise, actually. Baroni is a talented vocalist, much like what you'd expect given his Italian roots. And the album's primary songwriters — Massimo Calabrese, Marco Rinalduzzi, Marco D'Angelo, Carlo Bertotti, and Claudio Mattone — craft ethereal electronic soundscapes that are anything but "classical" in the same sense that Baroni's singing style is.

On the other hand, Baroni's traditional Italian vocal approach makes the album's music sound a bit more accessible. The resulting synthesis is both familiar in one sense yet cutting-edge in another.
