4 stars Since my elder brother bought this album in the seventies, I have always been intrigued by it. I someone would say to me now: there is this terrific album by a Spanish group, doing there version of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi, I would not be over enthousiastic to buy it. I would expect a one-on-one version, replacing violins with keyboards and guitars. Just like Ekseption did. But listening to it for the first time I was immediately captured by the first track, which sounded to me like the beginning of the Universe and suddenly the birth of the first human. The way that they integrated the well known Vivaldi tunes was also better than to be expected, especially the way the guitars and percussion were used. And then, after a spacey start, guitar solo's, even Spanish and Latin singing (I'm not sure here) a typical Spanish tune with acoustic Spanish guitar and song. At the end, the Apocolyps, I believe it is the voice of God himself who speaks to the world (at least, that is my interpretation, because I do not understand the Latin this person speaks).

All in all an album I have know for over 25 years now and still play, especially in my car when I'm in a Traffic Jam (which happens to often)
