    Less cinematic than Luppi’s previous work in scope and style, MILANO is an intimate collection of snapshots about life in a certain place at a certain time. It’s insightful, invigorating, and honest.

    The combination of talents involved works in all of their favor, and the result is a short, snappy modern art-punk album that is a worthy addition to each act's already strong catalog.

    On paper Milano should be a mess, but it's a resounding triumph. Luppi has crafted a fast-paced and fashionable record which taps into the lifeblood of his beloved Milan; seductive, hedonistic and super stylish.

    Like the city in its ’80s golden age, MILANO is superficial, vibrant, and full of possibility.

    The album is an engaging and enjoyable listen and deserves all the credit it will inevitably receive.

    Milano doesn’t come with the cinematic sensibilities or the polish that ‘Rome’ did, but its sheer boisterousness and rough-and-ready sonic approach does justice to the underground movement that it aims to serve as homage to.

    Fleeting pleasures aside, the focus becomes wayward afterwards.

    Good album. Karen O voice is catchy and will stick with you for days. It's not the greatest record of this year by far but some tracks areGood album. Karen O voice is catchy and will stick with you for days. It's not the greatest record of this year by far but some tracks are really good like Mt Napoleon or Talisa. Expand
