3 stars Here is good news from Argentina! It's the second album from Ave Rock, a gem from the Seventies.

1. Pausa En Espacious (Pause In Spaces) (21:13) : This long track delivers good Spanish vocals, flowing and fiery electric guitar (with choes from Steve Howe), a powerful bass sound (like Chris Squire) and a melodic and warm progrock sound. The climates alternates between dreamy, moving and bombastic featuring lots of great soli on guitar and synthesizer and captivating musical ideas.

2. 4:30 En El Universo (4:30 In The Universe) (4:45) : A dreamy piece with warm vocals and piano, then an accellaration with jazzy electric guitar and inspired Spanish vocals. Halfway the music features compelling organ and again good soli on guitar and organ.

3. Surcos En El Aire (Furrows In The Air) (15:20) : Another long composition that starts with a piano intro, then an accellaration with a guitar/organ duel, followed by instrumental firework on guitar and keyboards, GREAT! The music delivers lots of breaks and shifting moods, at some moments the guitar work reminds me of fellow Dutchman Jan Akkerman, taseful accompanied by Fender Rhodes electric piano. The final part has a wonderful build-up with strong duo-guitarwork and organ.

This second album is a bit more refined than their first effort and recommened to every proghead that loves the Seventies!
