Only for completionists (0%). Overall, this album is a gem in the tradition of classic RPI, although released in a time when prog had fallen out of favor.

I've always felt this album sounded more like 1974 than 1980. Could be a good thing. Don't let the release date fool you, this isn't one of those prog/disco albums.

Strangely, I find myself attracted to the softer mellower side of this album, which is seldom the case for me with most Progressive rock. I think it's because many of the quieter parts of this album are purely instrumental, with nice acoustic guitars reminding me of PFM.

Faust 8. La Scimmia sulla Schiena del Re Very little is known about this group called M. o. known to the Italian progressive rock 'aficionados' for Walter Locatelli's presence on drums, a former Dalton ("Riflessioni: idea d'infinito", "Argitari") member. The album, almost entirely instrumental, consists of eight tracks for about 35 minutes, mainly divided among acoustic sensations, slow atmospheric moments and more sustained and complex ones.

I've always felt this album sounded more like 1974 than 1980. Could be a good thing. Don't let the release date fool you, this isn't one of those prog/disco albums. It's actually a well crafted early to mid 70s style progressive mini masterpiece. Coming in at just over 33 mins, the ending comes pretty quick.Mo. Do. were formed by drummer Walter Locatelli formerly of the Italian band 'Dalton'.The vinyl version of this is extremely rare, and was released on the IAF label in limited quantities. This was part of the reason the band split shortly after it's release. Also by 1980, this type of music was no longer hip in some circles, and perhaps there weren't any record labels brave enough to touch a band who was still dabbling in an early to mid 70's sounding style of progressive rock.I think if it had come out a few years earlier, and released on a major Italian label such as 'Cramps' or 'Numero Uno', it would be right up there with the likes of other great Italian prog bands like PFM, New Trolls, Jumbo etc.At their liveliest, they remind me a lot of Gentle Giant, with their off-beats and weird time signatures. Actually, at times it sounds like they are trying a little too hard to be a 2nd Generation Giant, but it's done in a very tastefully.Strangely, I find myself attracted to the softer mellower side of this album, which is seldom the case for me with most Progressive rock.I think it's because many of the quieter parts of this album are purely instrumental, with nice acoustic guitars reminding me of PFM.Since I don't speak Italian, I find myself making up my own very convincing Italian sounding language in these quiet passages. I almost sound a little like Franco Mussida from PFM (on a bad day). It just seems to float out of me naturally, Lol. I recommend this album to all lovers of 70's Italian Progressive Rock, and I've heard that it's been available on CD for awhile.Upon first hearing this album your reaction might be, "What?? these guys are ripping off Gentle Giant"!! I must admit, that was my initial reaction too. But the album kind of grows on you after a few spins.
