4 stars An Argentinian masterwork that blew away latin american's music. This is a concept album about ... the Holy Bible!? It was revolutionary because it was done in 1971. In the 90s, the band reunited and did a remake with good results (similar to Oldfield and his Tubular Bells II). However, The vocals were not as good as in the original version. I'll talk about the original version.

The album begins in a mellow tone with sliding riffs until the song picks up its pace and ends in a magnificent instrumental section. The next two songs are of high quality too. Moises is a nice melodic piece with a synth driven conclusion and Guerras is a track that is focused primarily on instrumentation and excellent rhythms. There is also another good long track and a short acoustic number. The REAL highlight is actually Cristo. It is an epic that will delight fans of symphonic rock (long, complex, has an orchestra) and has good lyrics. Apocalypsis is a disturbing chaotic mess that works. In the re-make, there are two other bonus songs that are good enough to not be low points in this great album.

2. Genesis (9/10) 3. Moises (8/10) 4. Guerras (8/10) 5. Profecias (7.5/10) 6. Libros Sapienciales (8.5/10) 7. Cristo (9.5/10) 8. Apocalipsis (7/10) 9. El Manto de Elias I (8/10) 10. El Manto de Elias II (7/10)

My Rating (Original): B+ My Rating:(Remake): B

Preachy and sung in Spanish ... who cares?? This is one of the best prog albums from Argentina!
