Prog Reviewer
4 stars IMAN CALIFATO INDEPENDIENTE is another high-quality Spanish prog band that should round out a good Spanish-prog collection. The album consists of only 4 tracks. Side A is filled by a 20-minute epic track featuring a less complex form of symph-prog that occasionally mixes in noticeable flamenco styled scales. The music throughout the LP is mostly led by synth and guitar in a style that comes close to bands like FUSIOON, symphonic-era ICEBERG. While the synth-leads here sound a bit different from the typical Moog sound featured on most prog albums (even the ones from Spain), the sometimes cheesy "Elka-like" sound shouldn't bother most listeners. In fact, these days, I find myself prefering albums with Italian and Russian keyboards rather than the tired Moog and ARP sound. Anyway, Side B features 3 mid-length tracks of equal quality to Side A. While the music here didn't really blow me away, I find nothing to criticize. Most listeners will find the melodies likeable, the musicians top-notch, and the compositions above average. While I wouldn't rate IMAN CALIFATO INDEPENDIENTE as high as GOTIC or even FUSIOON, this band comes very close.
