4 stars Alas was (and is?) two-record-prog-rock-band from Argentina. This effort is their first from 1976 and there is two side-long composition-suites. I have got LP-version and therefore I haven't heard this shorter bonus from CD-version. But this LP is with gatefold sleeve with painting of Carlos Jones on the inner side of that. Yes - they have listened Emerson, Lake and Palmer but of course much more - jazzrock, tangos, new musics. I have maybe two real favourite things in first composition - the only quiet vocal part in Sueno sent by quite minimalistic keyboards - very different after expressive first part - and trumpet solo part Trumpetango. I think I like this composition better than the next one. The second composition was maybe more consistent without so-noticeable parts. But all in all - interesting album to discover. And again very difficult to give stars... Today is almost New Year's Eve. 3,6 stars is almost 4!!!
