3 stars Espiritu is one step behind in inspiration of groups such as Crucis. Although still worth the acquisition, I tend to think that my fellow reviewers are a bit too enthusiasted by this album (the next one Libre Y Natural is generally better rated although I have yet to hear it) to the point of giving it what I think is a too high a rating. Crisalida is certainly a good progressive record following the Italian pattern of prog with some of the Italian clichés - remember that although hispanophone , Argentina is primarily of Italian heritage ( more than 50% of the population) . Neither is it groundbreaking even though a very early album for the country's music industry (Los Jaivas from Chile was at their third or fourth album by then) , this record also holds no real south american flavour. Therefore to me , although good (what my fellow reviewers say about this album is true) , I must say that it is non- essential as there are much more important stuff to discover (even in this continent"s prog ) before reaching for this one.
