Prog Reviewer
3 stars A diverting and original album on the very cusp of symphonic prog and heavy prog, the debut Crucis album shows the influence of the likes of Emerson, Lake and Palmer and King Crimson - imagine if ELP had a couple of dynamite lead guitarists along for the ride and you're almost there, though AnÝbal Kerpel as a keyboard player is less prone to showboating and random covers of classical music than Keith Emerson was. With a punchy, accessible sound, Crucis go a long way towards putting Argentina on the prog map with this technically capable, masterfully performed, well-composed and endlessly listenable album, though some listeners may wish they emerged from the shadow of their influences a little more.
Warthur | 3/5 |
