3 stars OdraReg is percussionist Gerardo Ubiedas band or project (Gerardo spelled backwards). It is undoubtable my first encounter with Venezuelan prog. The first moments on the record are quite spectacular. You don't have a clue of what to expect and the sound is incredible and the bass played by Ricardo Tirado is deep and powerfull. No doubt, this album is well recorded and no dynamic compression has been utilized.

The music then evolves into a textutre of a lot of synthesizers or Atari programming. Passages of great rhytmical groove and free psychedelia vary. There is a slight jazzy undertow. From the second trac on the music turns more into spacy psychedelia. The melodies are a bit klumsy and awkward. From the fifth tarck on more symhonic elements come and the music becomes more structured. We also get a little different track with sax and trumpet accompanied with mellow organ sounds. You cannot blame Gerardo not being experimental. Suudendly in track 6 which flows with great guitar solo is interupted with acoustic piano and a moment of beauty until you are taken back to chaos ant avatgarde sounds and again interupted, this time with Tirados great pulsating bass and female voices...

Very interesting album. A bit scattered maby. I would not call this essential, not as excellent either. Good but non-essential suits perfectly.
