Review by Heptade
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars This is first of two double albums that Argentinian band Arco Iris recorded, the second being Agitor Lucens V. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this is an essential South American prog album in every way, quite stunning, in fact. Arco Iris combined elements of psychedelia, jazz (the excellent sax playing resembles early Crimson), symphonic prog, some Floydian spacy elements, and Andean folk in a stew that is not too far off from Jaivas' early sound but is still distinctive. This is too long an album to break down track by track, but it comprises a number of short pieces (occasionally a recurring melody pops up from the overture) and two long tracks. The long tracks tend to devolve into guitar based jamming, which is not entirely my cup of tea, but the level of musicianship is very high. The short songs are all wonderful, usually characterized by great harmony vocals and often some lovely acoustic playing. S. American folk instruments pop up from time to time, as well as some very tasty flute playing.

For the time and place (meaning the technology available there at the time), the production is very good, clean and clear. I'd like to give this five stars, but it's not currently available on CD and may not become so, so I don't want to make all you proggers jealous. But if you come across it, you will not regret picking this album up. It's ambitious, artistic and a great musical journey into the realms of South American prog.

4 stars OK, double album was born deep ago in time of 40min LP's. So then double is now one full CD. But then it was something unique.

But I'm afraid that I don't see much more than bunch of noises in "Obertura". It really disappointed me so much that I though that this album will get well deserved 3 star rating. But tracks 2 and 3 have changed my mind. Then it's easy, no conflict. If things will go this way, 4 star rating.

(after minutes of listening) and it goes. Fine introduction to jazz rock with terrible intro track. Quite a irony. Even it's not my cup of tea, I was enjoying this and can't do else than give it 4 stars. It would be unfair for such talented band.

PROG REVIEWER
5 stars This record is a milestone in South American progressive rock. Being probable among the finest and most complete concept albums ever made. Sudamerica tells the story of six men going on a mystical trip around the subcontinent. They will eventually reach the hills and find the way to salvation. But the music here it's the most important aspect of the record. Mixing psychedelia , jazz , rock and argentinean folk music this is a record that becomes a must if you are into progressive rock!

There are 26 songs in total and doing a song by song review will be pointless with this album but the highlights of the record are the longest tracks Obertura (13 min) and Hombre (17 min) those tracks are surrounded by loads of little tunes ranging from one minute to five minutes in length that are wonderfully produced and arranged

The musicianship and versatility shown by the members of the band here is amazing and the vocal harmonies are lovely. This is a record that must be heard at least once to have a taste of the finest South American prog- I consider this record to be a MASTERPIECE from the beggining to the end.

5 stars You can call this: "the second concept album of Argentina" the first is the bible of Vox Dei of 1971. The best concept album of Argentina, it's mixes jazz, latin folk (chamamé, malambo, chacarera), symphonic rock, and a little of balladry. I think this album it's much better then "Tiempo de resurr ... (read more)

4 stars Even with this band be intituled of a jazz rock fusion band, this album is, in my opinion, a sample of some fine symphonic prog, with some elements of folk music. this album is full of classic guitar with some orchestration too, wich make this piece a fine adition to all of those who like the ...
