4 stars Well my opinion is affected by this weak production, regarding anyway a small jewel of "Proto-Fusion Prog", within the Spanish music scene of the late seventies ... This "Escenes" is a sweet romantic album, with such splendid excursions into a delicious "Fusion-Progressive", but also with elements of Medieval music (talking about the lightest aspects of this latter); honestly there's a certain sense of tiredness in the second section of the album, even though the sweet flute melodies are memorable. It reminds a certain "CAMEL mood", talking about the period of "Moonmadness"; but this definition is applicable to the last part of the present album only, because the first section is more fusion oriented. Nevertheless the important symphonic breaks through make this work very interesting, even though in the same period a symphonic effort - such as that one of the Swedish ensemble DICE, moved the fans of such "Classic Symphonic Progressive" in the direction of a more epic symphonic genre. Despite of this consideration and by forgetting the weak production, the present work is well worth checking out, at least!!
