A day to read the reviews about the presentation of the 20 unreleased songs for Sanremo 2015 and one more time to be a little … relief to see that, although they talk a lot of “more of the same” and “nothing really new” the press also wrote “more of the same” and “nothing new”or more than clichés. A few have the courage to say what they really thought – good or bad -, and you have to deal with people trying to be cool, trying to look inserted into the musical context, but with a lack of originality and overwhelming courage. Do not like it? Say it without subterfuge and with solid arguments. Metaphors must be used with some knowledge of the facts. But it is understandable…, many people have a high resistance to recognize their mistakes later so it is easy to remain behind words of unclear meaning.
Let’s go the news:

Canzoni mediocri e uniformi – by Giuseppe Attardi on La Sicilia – Review about the 20 unreleased songs for Sanremo 2015. “A Sanremo nightmare is to be held on February 10 to 14 at the Teatro Ariston. The uniformity prevails. A molasses in the music and lyrics. The ballad melodic reigns in its classic structure: delicate intro, emphatic opening to start the voice and exploit the orchestra. And love, in all its facets…” Il Volo: “And then “Il Volo”, whose tenor voices will peel the hands of the Sanremo audience. Throats unfolded, the three singers are presented with a great love song with a development to Europe (those of The Final Countdown): on the edge of kitsch, between musical and pop romance.”
