2 stars An intriguing Basque group, Lisker had an unusual formulation, featuring no keyboards but instead an assertive flute, used as a foil for what is basically a hard rock album full of muscular rhythms, energetic drumming, and bluesy lead guitar. They seem like an angry cousin of Magdalena, another (better) Basque group that also issued one album. Only a few of the soft acoustic introductions betray any folk roots, and for 1979 precious little except for the combination of instruments itself can speak for the band in terms of innovation or interest other than the historical. If you like rocked up solos with succinct flute phrasings and occasional vocals you could do much worse, but its appeal to prog folkies is minimal, and I personally do not bask in it.
