Who didn’t melt with the youthful, colorful rejoicing that emanated from 'Personal Train'? It has been years since we heard an album that brought together styles from jangle to indiepop with a touch of Brazilian music, psychedelic pop, Italian sound tracks..and to do it that level of energy.
FITNESS FOREVER’s 2nd album is flooded with groove and disco, a clear 70s scent, marinating in the spices of STEELY DAN, Lucio Battisti, Marcos Valle, David Axelrod. But it's also full of contemporary influences like ARIEL PINK, MODULAR, GONZALES, TORO Y MOI and LA CASA AZUL, as well as his recent passion for 70s Brazilian albums.
The summery young innocent mood of 'Il Cane Ciuff', to the gift of seaside vacations in 'Piano Fender Blues', the hedonistic spirit of pop in 'Le Intenzioni Del Re' and 'L’amore Annegato' (pure BURT BACHARACH), to the traces of geniuses like MARVIN GAYE, BARRY WHITE and CURTIS MAYFIELD. Jazzy experiments like 'Laura' and even spacey hallucinations blessed by SUN RA in 'Cosmos' and 'Disco Quiz' show a leap toward maturity in all senses, but luckily it’s full of vital energy that FITNESS FOREVER are true masters of.
