5 stars For those who love progressive rock Classical adaptations will simply freak out over Los CANARIOS' "Ciclos" who re-interpret Vivaldi's classic symphony "Le Quattra Stagioni" (The Four Seasons). I would say the RDM's "Contaminazione" is to Bach as CANARIOS is to Vivaldi. For those who know the Four Seasons well will immediately recognize the substitution of electric guitar and analog keyboards for violins. Vocals although not overly dominant are sung mostly in English and are mostly operatic by the magical vocals of Rudmini Sukmawati. "Ciclos" offers some simply outstanding keyboard work with loads of moog and mellotron thoughout. Essentially "Ciclos" is a musical re-interpretation of Vivaldi's 4 Seasons with some complete re-interpretations and variations on his masterpiece. One of the most striking aspects of this album is the vast use of instrumentation throughout (ie. Theremin, orchesta, banjo,, phase shifter....).
