Franco Battiato - Fetus album FLAC
After some singles in a melodic, commercial style, in 1972 Franco Battiato took a more challenging musical direction for his first full length album on Bla Bla Records blending Italian melody with experimental electronic sounds. Franco Battiato was active in music for years before the 1972 release of this his debut album. He struggled for years as a singers artist in Milan recording under the name of Francesco before getting together with some musicians he had played with and forming the group Osage Tribe. After a couple of singles he left to start his solo career before the release of the groups seminal Arrowhead album.

Battiato's songs contain esoteric, philosophical and religious themes. He is and has been for decades one of the most popular pop singer-songwriters in Italy
Produced by Pino Massara. Non ero ancora nato Che già sentivo il cuore Che la mia vita Nasceva senza amore. Mi trascinavo adagio Dentro il corpo umano Già per le vene Verso il mio destino. Title track from the album Fetus, an album inspired by the book Brave New World from Aldous Huxley. The album was published in 1972 under the experimental label Bla Bla. Upvote.
As a student of Karlheinz Stockhausen, Franco Battiato was enthusiastic about electronic music, and found his voice as a minimalist composer who combined avant-garde minimalism, experimental rock, and popular forms into a strange hybrid of abstract sound that touches on Tangerine Dream-like passages. Titles such as "Una Cellula," "Energia," "Fenomenologia," and "Mutazione" may indicate that this is a heavy concept album indeed, and the theme of birth and rebirth may well have been a hot topic of the time

All in all, this is an excellent album of ntal/avant-garde music by Franco Battiato and should appeal to most open-minded prog rock fans. As somebody who enjoys progressive rock along with electronic music; the European avant garde; minimalism; serialism; and aleatoric music (. John Cage), this album proved to be a lot of fun to listen to. Very highly recommended along with Pollution (1973) and Sulle Corde di Aries (1973)
