PROG REVIEWER
3 stars I have heard two CD's from Argentine four piece band Aqualarre: their second entitled Brumas (1974) and their third entitled Siesta (1975). I prefer Siesta because it sounds a bit less raw. In general Aquelarre delivers melodic, elaborate and alternating music on their seven compositions, often warm and a bit subdued with dreamy vocals. I am delighted about the colouring by the 'vintage keyboards' like the distinctive Hohner clavinet and the Fender Rhodes electric piano (giving the album a jazzy undertone) along organ and synthesizers. The melodic guitar work is often very sensitive, a wonderful combination with the varied keyboards and pleasant vocals. If you want to check out the very interesting Latin-American prog, this band is a nice one to discover!

4 stars (Nothing psychedelic here at all), but rather extremely melodic 70s vintage type Prog Rock of Sudoamerican dreams. First side of this album is top notch, best class, highest quality. The second one is good, but not so appealing. However also not appalling.

There is strong scent of happy atmosphere, pouring from each second of this record, happy atmosphere, band having fun making this album and so on. Why not, this only helps.

Be it first seconds of Pájaro De La Locura where this great sounding keyboard stars the show (I wish I remember the name of this instrument), multi-vocal harmonies that are present in various tracks, original melodies (interesting ones), beautiful second part of Canto Centrino.

It's hard to be so melodic and not being pathetic / cheesy (call it as you wish), but guys from Aquelarre manages to stay at the top with this album.

5(-), one of the best ones. Because it's hard to be so beautiful.
