Prog Reviewer
3 stars Psiglo with this album became a quite famous outfit for Uruguay, as well as reaching Argentina, as a Heavy Rock band which was in the style of early Deep Purple and Uriah Heep(definitely not in the style of success). With the notable Hammond use, as well as heavy guitar riffs and solos, which is definitely what made them similar to the 2 bands mentioned before, though this band lacked much of their power, while certainly heavy, it's cold with a big lack of energy.

Ideacion brings you from the heavy organ-driven En Un Lugar un Niño and the often compared to Easy Livin' by Uriah Heep, Vuela a Mi Galaxia, which was originally intended to be a tribute to Uriah Heep as well as to Deep Purple, to other heavy numbers featuring some dated-Moog solos. Ideacion also brings soft tunes like the acoustic, candombe-style percussion, with No Pregunten Porque and the melancholic Catalina featuring a string quartet, to really give you such melancholic feel. Ideacion also gives you the always expected(from Heavy Rock bands of the time) a semi-prog blues song with Es Inutil, with a bit of King Crimson(odd sax), but mainly Uriah Heep(Lucy Blues). Psiglo's debut ends up with another heavy tune, mainly organ-driven, but like many other debuts from Prog/Rock bands, it features a decent drum solo, which it isn't a big deal.

Certainly Ideacion was one of a kind in South-America, bringing a heavy style heard only from UK or U.S bands, with a ass-kicking guitar/organ delivery, but due to production, Psiglo couldn't make it to the 00's as energetic as they used to be. Still Ideacion is worth-while for those fans of heavy Organ, as well as bands in the style, of already mentioned, Deep Purple and Uriah Heep, definitely not as powerful nor creative.

Ideacion stands up as a decent hard rock release, though being actually for collectors of ''rare''(mainly for the foreigners) hard rock/prog albums. A 3 star album, with the definition of a 2 star.
