CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Uncut
A record that celebrates dynamic eclecticism as much as it does its core punk ethos.

Mojo
Italia 90's debut finds ever more inventive ways of expressing disdain at the status quo.

God Is in the TV
Italia 90 have obviously put everything into this album. It’s complex and has such depth in its lyrical content. The music is varied and full of surprises with its changes of pace and genres.

Clash
‘Living Human Treasure’ is a wonderfully exciting and enjoyable album. Italia 90 have and axe to grind and grind it they do.

DIY
Energetic, furious and deeply lamentful.

It can be said that this record might not stand out among other contemporary artists in post-punk, however the execution and energy on a lot of these tracks is something to behold. A lot of these songs stick to me for some reason; whether it be the basslines driving the song or the lyrics on the hooks themselves. Anyone who adores post-punk should at least spin this once or twice. I guarantee you'll walk with something added to library that will stay throughout the year.

Although Living Human Treasure's sound was great, it lacked personality and could use some more improvement in building an enhanced soundscape to surround and submerge the listener in a better experience. Solid album with the exception of some tracks that were pretty tame.

Com mensagens fortes, esse album de pop punk marca sua presença. Possui produção bem feita e com sons e melodias inovadoras, com bastante uso de efeitos. O vocal compõe a estética punk com pouca capacidade vocal e mais ríspido, no geral o álbum é bem coeso e entrega o que busca
