Sad but I have to agree. No dynamics at all, thats what came to my mind when listening to it too (with some exceptions)... unfortunately.
I think some of these tracks would be so-called "B Sides" if Gigi were to upload them to youtube as he did some years before -tracks which have been created years ago and been abandoned since, and now brought back to "life", a bit mastering here and there, some extra effects and boom, it can be distributed. Well, I'm happy to have it released, but a bit also sad, because this is not the way it lived in my/our mind. (also WTF at 5:27, Gigi suddenly fades the track over, then the sound comes back for a final 0.1 sec- wat! Is it the same way in the released version too? Someone who already bought this track can confirm if it has sound clip error at the end of the track or not?) 3/10
The "Lost", the track we got for first is really something energetic and powerful. This is lento. Something old, but something new as well. Its mystic, its powerful, its dark - this is how we like it Gi' ^_^ No more words needed. 9/10
Cosmico is also something great, I expected this track to be released (nowadays he plays it on lives very much), but I thought maybe this is what going to be the track called "Dark" :D - which now we know doesn't exists, at least not on the EP called "Dark" lol. I think they're born in the new "era" of Gigi's lento, both should be relatively new tracks (I imagine them to be some kind of "twins", the one being created soon before/after the another), and they both have a similar sound/samples. Lost however is the younger & better looking one to me, so I'd choose her to go on a date lol :'D But Cosmico is also not bad, just not so powerful. 6/10
Sensa Ragione (Flusso Di Coscienza) - the idea is very good, and Gigi is really showing his creativity in this track. You can really say that its Gigi's track by first glance.
However the sound is REALLY too flat to me… when I'm listening to it I also imagine a long-abandoned track which he might thought "ah okay, lets release it, they will definitely be shocked because no one ever heard it". And yeah the original "Senza Ragione" would have been not a big surprise, because I've heard it at least 192312893912 times :D So its something new for sure, something exciting. I just really think it needs some energy, it needs some more higher frequencies, seriously to me it sounds like a 128 kbps mp3, and that fade off at the end of the track is REALLY annoying… WHY, just why. Also the vocals are so much auto-tuned they're almost unrecognizable. While listening towards the end of the track I was hoping for some piano ending like we got used to by many of Gigi's tracks, or something such wonderful, but no, he choose "ah I don't have time to finish it and anyways its already an mp3 so what could I do for it, lets fade it off and publish"... this is how it feels. 5/10
Weeeeelll its an interesting title for this track, because there are some "wild" lento tracks to me (like "Quoting" or "Distorsione Dag", or the "Oscillazione Dag" from 2007), but I wouldn't call this track that 'wild' :D Its rather "old fashioned lento", and I'm not saying its bad at all, but it doesn't shows much surprise, its not a new direction like where Luca & Gigi went with "Treno Lento", and not even one of the hardest, but instead more 'clubbish', a "Gigi's Loop" kind of lento track. Interesting to hear that its dynamic as well, just like "Lost", but its definitely an old track O.o Anyway, the only thing that its a bit repetative to me, I rather like the more melodic tracks, or lento tracks with more "push" and hardness. 6/10
"Lost" is really the best piece of the EP. I think Gigi has much more powerful tracks than some of these, but to me it looks like if he's waiting for something to release them, or maybe he doesn't even want to release them at all, just keep the best of his arts for his live nights, and pull the others from his hat to put it online, so we can listen to him. Win-win. And when he decides to release a track he sometimes kind of purposedly """ruins""" it a little bit with flangers, fade-offs on an EXTENDED PLAY (OMG), and such, so if you are willing to go to his live, maybe he can enjoy the original version of the track. :'D Who knows Gigi's mind.
The only thing which got my interesting is that the "Treno Lento" has full of powerful and well-mastered tracks (Luca's mastering, I guess), while all the other Gigi releases (not just this Dark EP) sometimes lacks of power. But anyways, I really think some of the above tracks are so old that its even wonderful to have released in any version, so at the end of the day we can be grateful to have them. :) But one thing for sure, they are not the one which are dominate the World with a new & energizing sound of Lento. ("Lost" is really close to it, though ^^. Its pure art.)
That was my 2 cents.
