5 stars ICEBERG were one of Spain's top progressive fusion bands. They put out about 3 albums in the seventies before quiting. "Coses Nostres" is their second LP, and it featured the beginnings of a more jazz-fusion type of sound. At this point, the band's sound still featured a strong European symphonic influence, yet the guys also seemed interested in spicing things up a bit with jazz-fusion. The fusion-chops, at this point, weren't as advanced as they would be on "Sentiments", but most of the musical passages seemed to want to reach a higher level of technical complexity. I've heard many folks complain about the sound-quality of the CD reissue. Although it's not as bad as the sound-quality of, say, the PABLO "El Enterrador" CD, some of the Moog-lines tend to get lost in tons of distortion(maybe 40-seconds total) towards the middle of the album. If you have problem with sloppy CD reissues, you might want to wait until "Coses Nostres" gets properly remastered. Overall, new Spanish prog collectors should start with "Sentiments" before checking out "Coses Nostres".
