5 stars If AZAHAR debut ''Elixir'' is only a good album, their second effort, ''Azahar'', is a masterpiece. It is in my opinion a key Spanish prog album, of the same level as TRIANA's ''El Patio'' or ''Recuerdos De Mi Tierra'' by MEZQUITA.

''Azahar'' is a tasteful, very energetic blend of symphonic rock, flamenco (mostly in the way of singing, Spanish guitar plays a lead role only in one song) and jazz with some Arabian touches here and there. First class musicians offer the listener great variety of moods and melodic finds. Ricardo Zappala's singing deserve special mention - Spanish in nature, sometimes gentle, sometimes aggressive, but always natural. The writing is also strong, ''Azahar'' instantly grabs your attention, but every time you listen to the album you can find new nuances.

AZAHAR made a classic record, one of the best in the genre, it's a pity their career was so short. Highly recommended.
