5 stars After their majestic debut album Invisible had to confirm to the public if they were one of those one album wonder bands ( pretty usual in Argentina) or a serious project. And personally speaking , I think they made an improvement over their debut release which was really hard to top anyway. Durazno Sangrando is an album based on a book by Carl Jung and Richard Wilhem called The Secret of the golden Flower. Spinetta was really fond of reading and he got some inspirations for his lyrics from autors like Rimbaud , Artaud ( he dedicated one release to him) , Nietzche , Freud and Michel Foucault among others.

This record is a bit more accesible and less darker than his debut album. It opens with an amazing epic called Encadenado al Anima and then features shorter songs all of them with a jazzy approach. Encadenado.. opens with a spacey section driven by Spinetta's guitar and Pomo's subtle drumming. Luis's vocals share a lot in common with Jon Anderson and some of the greatest RPI singers of the 70's. Suddenly the song breaks into a faster section to become subtle once more this time with some smooth synthetizers on the back. This song is a memorable epic since it has several mood changes and is really well composed. Also I want to add that the lyrics for this song were inspired on a poem written by Luis's father.

The title track is an absolute classic of argentinian rock and one of Spinetta's most popular song. It's just 3 minutes long but holds an undescriptable beauty. If I were to describe this one , I would say it's a cross between some of the early KC ballads like Lady of the dancing water or Cadence and Cascade and some of the most gentle PFM or Celeste moments. The third song Pleamar de Aguilas is not sung by Spinetta but bassist Machi. And altough his voice is a lot different from Luis the result ain't bad. Some may say this song is a little whimsical but it features very good guitarwork from Luis and nice vocal harmonies as well. En una lejana playa del Animus is probably the most laid back song on this record. Being 9 minutes long it starts with some jazzy improvisation and then features some spacey guitars. Luckily the mood of the song changes with a powerful chorus and from that moment on turns on a rocker driven by Spinetta's fantastic guitar solos and Machi's bass groove . Lastly , the record closes with another 3 minute acoustic song with jazzy chord progressions called Dios de Adolesencia. It's a really simple , yet beautiful song which happens to be my favourite on this record.

For those looking for Argentinian prog , Durazno Sangrando is the place to go.It's an essential record from both my country and South American prog.
