Excellent reissue on a reasonably-priced 2-CD set of both studio albums by Italy's DFA (Duty Free Area). It is not an exaggeration to say that this Italian band formed in 1995 has succeeded in capturing the essence of their 70s inspirations (Gentle Giant, Banco, and National Health, a.o.) without in any way diminishing an original sound that is both exciting and enriching! Some comparison could also be made between DFA and fellow Italian band Deus Ex Machina. In fact, DEM's vocalist Alberto Piras was so impressed by their demo that he signed them to his own label for their debut CD "Lavori In Corso" and he guests as vocalist on one track from their second album "Duty Free Area"! One of the guiding lights of the current Italian scene, DFA has certainly been an inspiration to many other young bands. This great repackage also has three bonus live tracks! Fabulous!!
