In 2007 Giorgio Maggiore released his third record, called DENTRO AI
After having produced two twin dark wave records (OASI DI CEMENTO in
2005 and I COLORI CHE CAMBIANO in 2006), Giorgio changes very much his
style, leaving the sterotypes of some early eighties British new wave
bands for some experimentation in a more progressive way. DENTRO AI
TUOI SOGNI (Into your dreams) is an almost completely instrumental
As in all his records, Giorgio played all the instruments, composed,
mixed, arranged and produced all the tracks on his own, without any
BAGLIORI DI LUCE (Lightnings) opens the album. It is an instrumental
track with piano and synthetical violins.
Piano melody seems to take the listener into a dream or into a
ILLUSTRE SCONOSCIUTO (Famous Unknown) is a very various medley almost
It starts with a quiet melody played by dreamy acoustic and electric
guitars. This melody recalls some themes of romantic rock of early
Seventies. Suddenly a melodramatic choir turns the mood in a darker
way...the dream is turning to a nightmare..Coral notes and psychedelic
guitars are getting into the main theme through a psychedelical
intermezzo with synth and bass guitar..Percussion starts stressing
rhythm, powerful shoegaze guitars attack roughly, heavy lyrics against
workers exploitation are sung and shouted...it seems a nightmare...but
suddenly sweet dreamy notes of the first theme return to let the
DIVERTENTE (Amusing) is a ballad characterized by a hoarse voice and
a final shoegaze solo guitar which grows little by little until the end
of the song.
MI ASCOLTERAI? (Will you hear me?) is another various medley with
many rhythm and sound changings.
In the refrain psychedelic guitar theme and percussion seem chase
each other. In the end three electric guitars, without any other sound,
seem to talk each other for a couple of minutes..guitar style recalls
some Barrett tracks.
IL SOGNO INFINITO (The endless dream) is an instrumental track, with
piano and synthetical orchestra. It is a melancholic track with a mood
which reminds of some Nick Drake tracks.
IL TUO FIORE VERO (Your true flower) is an acoustical ballad with
shoegaze guitar and percussion in evidence. Lyrics talk about a man who
treats his life like a centrifugal machine. He never finds the time to
think about his dreams realization, because he wants to be a production
unity. One day he perceives he\'s living an useless empty life.
ADDIO G (Goodbye G) is another instrumental track with a dramatical
piano melody and synthetic violins notes which seem to cut like
The final track is called LA GRANDE BOLLA (The big bubble). Acoustic
and electric guitars seem to chase each other shaping a sweet carpet of
sound. After an intermezzo with guitar and synth orchestra a refrain
starts suddenly with a strange unexpected operetta folk melody. In the
end the guitar carpets little by little thin away..only two guitars
remain to play chasing each other for the last minute of the album.
Lyrics talk about a man who decided to escape from reality finding
shelter into a big bubble containing his dreams. One day the sun melt
the bubble which exploded setting the man free with his dreams.
DENTRO AI TUOI SOGNI is a quite strange and particular album with no
stereotypes. Maybe it contains only Giorgio deepest thoughts and
