Mario: "The choice of this one, among the huge Hackett repertoire, was pretty unavoidable for me. The original song was originated by a text sent by Nick Clabburn to Steve from my then house in August 2008. Nick that night didn’t manage to sleep, so he just texted to Steve: “all the sleepers send you their dreams”. Hackett was so hit by the poetry of the sentence that he built a wonderful song around it. Algebra’s version, however, had to be different, so we tried various stuff inside our cover. We included parts of violas, well played by Enrico Falbo, and then Roberto came out with a sort of Celtic middle section. To complete our version, I just thought it was necessary to impersonate the nightmarish part of the original song asking to my son Simone to add some growl vocals (thanks, Oriana). And so there you have it: Algebra at their weird best!”.
