Prog Reviewer
4 stars (I am not reviewing the 1974 version of the album, but the original from 1971.)

I find it odd that Vox Dei is not included in Progarchives, especially since their album La biblia is a marvellous concept album. Though I've been familiar with it for a long time I really didn't listen until a few months ago. Some albums come creeping up on you when you least expect it. Anyway, I don't speak spanish. Having read latin in school and being interested in languages in general I do understand certain words but not all of the lyrics. But that's not really all that important. The important thing is the way the music speaks to me. It hits me right in the chest and fills my body with joy. The music is very proto-proggish, sometimes with strong influences of blues. Theres a roughness about the whole thing, a ragged, furious feel. I am not all that knowledgeable about south american prog but this has to be one of the diamonds from that area. It grooves on very nicely and is ended with the apocalyptic Appocalipsis. I find the first song, aptly titled Genesis, to be on of the highlights with strong, emotional vocals and really, the album doesn't let up after that. Do give it a few spins. I think you'll thank me afterwards.
