Review by Cesar Inca
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Well, after the anticipation comprised in their "El Viaje" EP, now Supay delivers their proper sophomore album to the prog audiences: it bears the same title as the aforesaid EP and also bears the same cover image, although with a more refined coloring and a more stylish lettering. Here we have 10 tracks that comprise each individual asset of Supay's prog folk style in a nenhanced fashion, yet still all of them fused in a clear unity that cleverly measures the tandards of their mutual contrast. While the "Confusión" album brought the perfect melding between complex rock and the candid textures of Andean folk, "El Viaje" finds both elements growing in its own terms in order to redefine their own untouched marriage. In this way, the resulting tension gives a new dimension to the mysterious beauty of the melodic lines and the robust developments of the jams. That's why guitarist Luis Proaño finds a bigger room to show his hard rocking influences (Blackmore, Satriani) together with his Gilmour-meets-Alquinta flourishes, plus a touch of blues-rock in places. On the other hand, despite the fact that the woodwinds feels sometimes a bit surpassed by the expansive forces of Proaño's guitar leads, you can still tell that the sounds of the diverse Andean pipes manifest a large part of the band's essence. The tighter overall sound finds a very appropriate foundation in the solid rhythm duo, while Valverde, with his inventive use of harmonies, ornaments and layers on keyboards (plus a couple of brief solos), stands out as a subtle protagonist within the ensemble. It comes as such a rare paradox that the band could actually reinforce their sonic energy when this material was recorded under an irregular schedule through the yer 2006, and with its line-up experiencing consistencies. The bassit's role was affected by the fact that the talented Renzo danuser had personal plans to develop in a foreign country and León remained as the sole woodwind player... and last but not least, Valverde was growing increaingly apart from his bandmates until he ultimately quit for good. Well, this album sure signifies a testament of his good taste and ability. Let's take a look at the material. The album kicks off with an ethnic prelude, similar in spirit to the opening track of Los Jaivas' "Alturas de Machu Picchu". Then comes 'Alma', a rockier number that remains very much rooted in the melancholy side of things until it tightens up for the latter half. On the other hand, the electrifying 'Supay' starts and ends in a very intense mood, with some softer cadences emerging in the middle. 'Lejanía' and 'Resurrección' are as intense as 'Supay' and remain highlights of the album. Although 'Resurrección' is a fave of mine, I wish it included more woodwind input, but all in all I have no major complaints about this piece, well.... both pieces. They establish a consistent equilibrium of melodic developments in some sections and reasonably free flows of heavy-meets-space environments in others, sequenced in a fluid whole. Anyway, the namesake closer brings a more balances presence of guitar and woodwind with its two-part structure: first, a bossanova pace filled with eerie synth layers and flating quena lines, second a hard psychedelic rock coda that goes headlong for the bombastic side of prog. 'Karnavalito', 'Ñan Quiska' (a reprise of 'Ancestro') and 'Guerrero' show the softer side of Supay, with León assuming control of center stage. This is an excellent album: "El Viaje" shows the ability of Supay to revitalize their musical core while keeping it intact.
