Lucio Battisti - Anima latina (1974)

Anima latina focusses on a return to basics simplicity in its experimentation, and a drifting liteness in its life-affirming grandiosity. It's so incredibly beautiful and simple that the listener often cuts it up into pieces and complicates it with presumed influences (Talk Talk, AnCo, The Flaming Lips) and dumbass categories (art pop, progressive pop, psych pop, and so on), maybe struggling to enjoy it in all of its self-contained joy and weightlessness. But that's what it wants to be, and that's all it is as well: simple self-contained joy and weightlessness
