4 stars Armando TIRELLI was a keyboard player who released this rare album, in 1978, inspired by the writings of Gibran Khalil. The music on "El Profeta" shows a strong influence from the Italian prog scene. In fact, there are certain sections that sound like they were recorded by an Italian band around 1973, but the Spanish vocals gives the album a unique South American flavor. I have to admit not liking "El Profeta" after first playing it. Most of the music sounded too dated, and even a bit too romantic. After repeated plays, something strange happened and the compositions grew on me to the point that the CD became one of my favorites. Out of the 13 tracks, I still have a problem with one track entitled "Hablanos Del Amor". That track is an attempt at writing a typical love song. Don't expect complex symphonic prog, but if you're in the mood for romantically beautiful melodies (ala Italian prog), and moods, then you will definitely enjoy "El Profeta".
