5 stars As far as I recall, Crucis has been the most recalled band frome the Argentinian progressive movement. There are two main things that probably got me to listen this band with particular attention.

The first is the relationship between Gustavo Montesano and Charly García (Sui Generis, La Máquina de Hacer Pájaros, Serú Girán). It is ussually said that García invested in the recording of Crucis's first album. Indeed, I knew Pino Marrone a few years ago and he affirmed this rumour, and he said how haigly-viewed the band was among certain musicians Argentina had back then.

Later on, I´ve also heard that this first album was recorded alive in Rosario, Argentina. Unfortunately, I couldn´t find out if that´s a fact. Listening to it, that doesn´t make much sense. However, I would appreciate to get any information about it.

I am pretty sure this album, and of course, Los Delirios del Mariscal also, are, if not the best, one of the most accurate examples of progressive rock in Argentina; not only regarding the exquisite expression of all the musicians, bat also because the quality of that record, practically unheard in that days in Argentina.

I find all the songs very intresting in general and, not surprisingly, with a very high political commitment. For example, I recommend you to check la triste visión del entierro propio, where Montesano make a certain parody of the militar goverment ruling on those days.

I hope Crucis gets a well-deserved place between the hall of fame of south american prog bands.
