4 stars An interesting album by this one-shoot Argentinean group. The music of Agnus is in the South American tradition but at times they sound remarkably like some of the symphonic 70's Italian groups like Premiata Forneria Marconi. This is by no means a bad thing. It makes this album a beautiful blend of two different music cultures. There's no doubt that Agnus was a first class act in the South American scene. The musicianship is of highest guality. This album has great fast guitar playing in the style of Bacamarte, searing flutes and wonderful vocals. The keyboards are not in the role of a solo instrument but more of a background instrument. The guitar and the flute are the lead instruments. "Pinturas Y Expresiones" is mostly an instrumental album but when the vocals appear, both male and female, they are very good.

There are only 4 tracks in this album of which three clock past ten minutes. My favourite track is the opener "XXI Century" but the rest of the tracks are not far behind in quality.

Conclusion: One of the best from Argentina. It's not a masterpiece but an easy recommend from the South American scene.
