His songs deeply touched the Italian psyche which had always held him in a special place as the singer who best captured the emotion and coming of age of an entire nation. While his later works did not reach the level of his efforts during the 60s and 70s, Battisti's classic songs will always find a place in our hearts and on the radio. Countless italian singers have been influenced by his style. His songs seem to cut across generational differences finding success with young and old alike. Luckily, his catalogue is well-documented and will provide countless years of listening pleasure. Songs like Acqua azzurra, acqua chiara will always be with us and for that we can be grateful and continue to appreciate his talents.

Harvey's merger with Tear Gas, a faltering rock band, was the smartest move of his career. With a heady mix of theatrics and driving rock, SAHB quickly made a name for themselves across England, releasing this album along the way. Harvey struts and yowls and gets raunchy (prefiguring the SAHB version of "Delilah") while Zal Cleminson rips up the territory with some astounding guitar work. A great debut and a hell of a rock album.
