4 stars I don't "get" the low ratings and the negative reviews on this one.... frankly, I trust only my ears at last. Whatever, I think we have an excellent Southamerican psych heavy prog album here. A Bolivian power trio who promises to blow your mind and is inspired equally by Jazz in general, Cream, Hendrix, Zeppelin, Keith Moon, Keith Emerson in particular. The music is mainly instrumental because you dont need a voice with so good playing. Bass and drums really compliments one the other and both, pave the way for Jose Eugenio's energetic and psychedelic guitar pyrotechnics that never stay in one place. Also, in rare occasions you get Eugenio's Keys in a NICE psychedelic manner ! Obviously, I like Climax powerhouse very much and find them in close (and strong) competition with other European acts of the period especially the German ones (check out the similar and more experimental sounds of the " Silberbart " group alone). It strikes me more that this gem never came out on cd.... Four stars
