4 stars I would have to agree with Marcello about Bubu not being the best of introduction for Argentinian prog : One would better start with Crucis or Espiritu. To say that this sole al;bum of theirs represents best the progressive musical landscape would be misleading but it is one of the more challenging one along with Mia to say the least . The long suite (19 min+) Procession For A Yellow Day on side1 is certainly full of surprise and stays successful most of the times. The better moments come in the second movement Locotomora Blues. On side 2 , I would say that the music still sound fine but is mared by the very approimate vocals the singer: fortunately those moments are not too present. Overall, the music veers off in the direction of Crimson and Osanna passing by a lot of Italian prog: this is no wonder as more than 50% percent of the population of argentina is of Italian descendence (look at the names of the members of this group to get a good idea of this) so that this explains that. I would have preferred more real; South american influences in their music much like the Chilean Los Jaivas did in their music, however as one feels too much the Bubu's needs to sound European does no favour to their music. Just a slight bit of remark, though!
