"The Italians are great at creating surreal ambient music and Capricorni Pneumatici stands proudly alongside the likes of Riccardo Sinigaglia, Pierluigi Castellano, Luciano Dari, Arturo Stalteri, et al, yet with a more oblique mysterious stance. Predominantly ring modulated synthetic/percussive sounds, tape loops and location recordings, it's an excellent tape containing just four long meandering dreamscapes that ebb, flow, scuttle around strangely on occasions, and really never break out beyond the ambient level or gaining any melodic structure. It sits there painting sonic pictures before you, strange, surreal and hypnotic." Alan Freeman - Audion issue#27, Winter 1994
