Review by erik neuteboom
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Although the second album sounds more progressive and more mature, I prefer the eponymous debut LP. The Hammond organ play is wonderful featuring many hugh floods and great runs, the guitar play is decent and the compositions are tasteful but not very original (evoking the organ-based progrock bands from the late-Sixties and early Seventies). Only the vocals doesn't please me, they tend too sound a bit unbalanced and at some moments too high pitched. Conclusion: a pleasant album for the Hammond aficionados.

3 stars Compared with their highly acclaimed second album, their debut though being a very nice one was not very intricate but still it contained some well-done compositions ranging from more mellow to quite rocking. They were showing a high skill on their instruments, just the vocals could have been better in a way, but it's not really that much disturbing since there are many instrumental sections as well. Really great Hammond organ sound, at times some piano as well. The kind of stuff presented might be compared with 70's Italian Art Rock bands like b>DALTON or THE TRIP for example. Some bits like in the last track remind as well to YES, especially in the guitar and bass play.

A very good debut, although being probably not an essential one, might be worth to be checked out by fans of Hammond! It would deserve 3.5 stars!

4 stars AVE ROCK were Argentina's answer to a progressive DEEP PURPLE! I love this debut album... Great guitar driven heavy prog psych drenched in tons of Hammond organ. Songs are very well developed with some nice mood variations and dynamic arrangements. Although there are some vocals they play a minor role as the album is mostly instrumental. The entire album is pretty trippy and spacey really with tons of great guitar, bass, drum and Hammond interplay. In many ways this album reminds me of bands from the Ital-prog genre. Clearly AVE ROCK is one of the classics of Argentinian rock and a fantastic play.

4 stars This is a rather obscure band, at least outside of their part of the world. That’s too bad though, because this and their only other album are both quite good, and well worth having if you can find them. This one was good enough to be released on CD by the Brazilian label PRW. This band is a classic example of Art Rock in the form of a progressive band that demonstrates a variety of genre sounds without any one of them being dominant.

The guitar on “Dejenme Seguir” is definitely blues-inspired, and would not have been out-of-place on any number of early 70’s ‘heavy rock’ bands like Wishbone Ash, Babe Ruth, maybe even Deep Purple – I could even be convinced there is just a touch of Carlos Santana in those chords. But with the Hammond this track leans almost into psychedelic territory, very much a Latin Pink Floyd kind of thing. The vocals are Spanish, and not particularly strong, and also very much an early 70’s sound. The more I think about it, the more this sounds like a b-side from ‘Abraxas’. A very strong tune, especially if you’re into a blues-based progressive sound (which I very much am).

In a slightly different vein, “Viva Belgica” clearly has symphonic leanings. Despite the heavy presence of bass and guitar here as well, this composition is centered on the keyboard progressions, and those are varied and among the more complex in this band’s repertoire. The guitar is complementary rather than tone-setting, except for a short interlude midway through where the guitar and bass dominate briefly. This is a relaxing and intriguing arrangement that seems to reveal a little more with each listen. Definitely the strongest track on the album, if not the best the band ever did.

“Gritos” hints at times that it might develop into a fully keyboard-driven composition, but the guitars here end up overpowering the Hammond and the result is another bluesy ‘heavy rock’ song, although this one features a stronger Hammond presence than “Dejenme Seguir”. The vocals are again unnecessary and a bit distracting.

“Absence” starts with a beautiful piano sequence, and the soft vocals and guitar make this sound like borderline folk to me. Maybe it’s just the languid tempo that gives off that impression – I dunno’. Were it not for the vocals I would say this is a rather simple style of symphonic rock, and maybe it is anyway, but the Spanish vocals and tempo tell me otherwise.

And speaking of tempo, the band picks it up on the final track “El Absurdo Y La Melodia”. The vocals sound like a Spanish version of Golden Earring or something, and the guitar and keyboards combine with the rapid vocals for more a more conventional sound than anywhere else on either Ave Rock album.

This is a highly recommended album from a band that is apparently still around in some form or another, or at least they have appeared recently in their home country, although they do not appear to record any longer. On a more proper scale I would give this 3.5 stars, but as I’ve done in the past I won’t penalize the band for the lack of precision in our rating system, so four stars it is.

peace

3 stars 3.5 stars actually...

Rather overlooked short-lived Argentinian band with a very rich and complex heavy rock sound.They were formed at the end of 1972,while in August of 1973 they started recording their debut.The eponymous release was published a year later,while AVE ROCK were touring in Argentina.Influenced by the likes of DEEP PURPLE and pushing their skills to the limit,AVE ROCK presented a powerful album full of time changes and alternating tempos with a touch of psych and symhonic rock.The work on Hammond organ recalls heavily early-70's DEEP PURPLE's,while the sound of the guitar is very psychedelic.Their style easily turns from dynamic rhythms to sensitive organ-based themes and from bluesy-rock parts to complicated GENTLE GIANT-like progressive rock.Vocals are sporadic,this is mostly an instrumental album filled with a thousand music colors and should please every fan of organ-based classic progressive rock.A strongly-recommended little treasure!
