All Music Guide - Mariano Prunes
After becoming one of Italy's leading rock bands with 2007's Le Finestra, capped with a concert at the San Siro stadium, Negramaro took almost three years to complete its successor, Casa 69. Named after the communal house where all the bandmembers live together, this is definitely an album bristling with ambition and self-confidence. With producer Dave Bottrill who has worked with the equally cathartic Muse and Placebo at the helm, everything is bigger and more extreme, as both the music and singer Giuliano Sangiorgi seem to exist in a state of perpetual paroxysm.

All Music Guide - Mariano Prunes
After becoming one of Italy's leading rock bands with 2007's Le Finestra, capped with a concert at the San Siro stadium, Negramaro took almost three years to complete its successor, Casa 69. Named after the communal house where all the bandmembers live together, this is definitely an album bristling with ambition and self-confidence. With producer Dave Bottrill who has worked with the equally cathartic Muse and Placebo at the helm, everything is bigger and more extreme, as both the music and singer Giuliano Sangiorgi seem to exist in a state of perpetual paroxysm. Negramaro's quest for epic greatness, however, has a notorious downside: it simultaneously leads them into excess. Right from the start, this album hits like a sonic tornado of hard rock, electronica, and orchestra, with Sangiorgi's voice deliberately becoming a desperate whine, dealing almost obsessively with the existential anguish of being unable to transcend the individual, to connect with other people, to escape solitude and isolation. Heavy stuff, and when it runs over 18 tracks including the two bonus tracks, Negramaro's relentless musical and lyrical intensity may get tiresome. Precisely for this reason, after every couple of tracks a strategically placed ballad springs like an oasis -- and these end up becoming the album's true standout moments, such as the mournful "Quel Matto Sono Io" and the rare glimmer of some hope offered by the duet with Elisa in "Basta Così." A multiple-platinum seller in Italy, Casa 69 spawned the singles "Sing-Hiozzo," "Io Non Lascio Trascia" dedicated to maverick playwright/actor Carmelo Bene, and the aforementioned "Basta Così." [The Special Edition adds two bonus tracks, a 54-page booklet, a CD with the soundtrack for Michele Placido's film Vallanzasca -- Gli Angeli del Male, and a DVD with backstage material, as well as the video clip for "Sing-Hiozzo" in 2-D and 3-D, complete with 3-D glasses.]
