4 stars Rather heavily hyped as a South American classic, I wouldn't go quite that far, though it's a quite excellent and beautiful album. Oft-compared to Locanda delle Fate, I do indeed get a similar vibe from this, though I find it highly unlikely that they were actually an influence. Possibly PFM and DEFINITELY some Genesis in there.

Based around dual keyboards, piano and Oberheim synth seem to dominate here, with some Minimoog and organ rounding out the sound as well. For all the Italian prog comparisons, it still sounds distinctively South American, with gentle Latin-style vocals (in Spanish of course) and lovely Andean folkloric touches.

Keeping this from being a classic are a couple of more commercially-minded numbers, notably "Accionista", which sounds like their attempt to do a Van Halen-style arena rocker. Sorry, guys, you can do the airy folk-sympho thing, but you can NOT rock!

That said, the rest of the album is indeed of the highest quality, and quite recommended to collectors of South American progressive rock.

Progbear | 4/5 |
