Invisible biography
Invisible was originally formed by Luis Alberto Spinetta (guitars and vocals) who was formerly from the band Pescado Robioso that recently broke up at the time. The bass and drums were played by two former Pappo's Blues members Hector Lorenzo (drums) and Carlos Rufino (bass.) During the beginning of the bands playing (1973) the music was more straightforward rock with influences of Hendrix and Zeppelin and touches of a Black Sabbath sound. Their first, self-titled album, reflected their influences and was very complex, especially for a three man rock group.

Their next album "Durazno Sangrando" was their debut on a major label and an all out progressive album. Spinetta's lyrics were very well written. The story to "Durazno Sangrando" was based on a book by Carl Jung. "Durazno Sangrando" is their most progressive album and is generally noted as the bands best material. In 1975, virtuoso guitarist Tommy Gubitsch joined the group. Their third and final album "El Jardín de los Presentes" turned out to be their most popular. This album has a lot of Tango influence and also some sounds that would remind us of early King Crimson. After the success of "El Jardín de los Presentes" the band split up at the end of 1976. Spinetta pursued a jazz-fusion esque solo career after the breakup.

Invisible was a bigger band in the Argentine prog scene and is definitely worth a good listen. If you are interested at all in Argentine prog they are essential. Their middle album "Durazno Sangrando" is their best and most interesting though "El Jardín de los Presentes" is also worth a good listen (mainly for it's fusion of rock, prog, and tango influence.)



Why this artist must be listed in www.progarchives.com :
Invisible should be listed in the archives because they were one of the bigger bands in the Argentine prog rock scene in the mid-70s. Their material is very intricate and well written and should be heard by all prog fans. Spinetta writes incredible lyrics and has a vocal that sounds similar and has been compared to Jon Anderson. If you are interested in Argentine prog, they are essential.

3 stars 3.5 stars really

Third album - El Jardín de los Presentes from 1976 is their best one for sure, or at least to me and is their most well known and in same time their last one, they disbanded in early 1977. On their previous albums they were a trio, he joined here the excellent guitarist Tommy Gubitsch who gives a jazier sound and atmophere and the result is great. Also there are some latin fusion elements thrown in and is quite enjoyble and solid in same time. Intricate and complicated arrangements even has some laid back parts, most of the time is complicated and well written. El Anillo Del Captain Beto defines Invisible sound with intelligent and catchy parts, very nice, Ruido De Magia is another highlight. Definetly one of the better bands from Argentina from glory days of prog with particulary this third album as their best.

3 stars Invisible was one of the front prog rock bands ever came from Argentina in mid '70s, even they had a short career and releasing only three albums. The second one from 1975 named Durazno sangrando from 1975 is to many the peak , the story is based on the book of Carl Jung and has very solid lyrics besides music made by the head of the band Luis Alberto Spinetta. Well, to me this album is more then ok, I like it, but never considered very intresting or groundbreaking as many pretend to be, has some great instrumental sections like the opening track Encadenado al ánima who is the longest from here. Not very much to add, while is pleasent most of the time , on some particular passages is little going on even has some subltle jazz symphonic arrangements in overall sound. 3.5 stars to this second album.

Review by MyDarling95

5 stars The third album from Invisible is a complete masterpiece! It is their last album, the one with the shortest songs and, maybe for that reason, the easiest to listen, but that doesn't make it bad. One can experiment a lot of sounds here: sweet ballads, jazz-rock instrumentals and explosive voices. Also the lyrics are very good (I can speak and understand spanish perfectly). I must recomend Los Libros De La Buena Memoria (The Books Of Good Memory), Ruido De Magia (Magic's Noise) and Niño Condenado (Convicted Child) as my faves from this album. It is really a masterpiece, a must have for any spanish prog fan, and perhaps for any prog fan.

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Invisible's El Jardín de los Presentes is a mellow mixture of melodic progressive rock, jazz- tinged soul, tango and folk. I have to be in a particular mood to fully appreciate it, but on balance it's a charming album which ably balances gentle, relaxing passages with moments of emotional splendour wrought from the screaming neck of Tommy Gubitsch's guitar. Luis Alberto Spinetta's soothing vocals are perhaps the key to the album's incredibly laid-back atmosphere, and it's notable for an acoustic style reminiscent of the more pastoral of the Italian prog bands and its unusual lack of synthesisers or keyboards for a mid-1970s progressive rock album.

Review by Evolver
Special Collaborator Crossover & JazzRock/Fusion Teams

3 stars For the year this was recorded this was a fine album. Musically, it is a mix of melodic ballads, rich symphonic, and avant garde rock, mostly mixed into the same songs. And that is the only real drawback to Invisible's second studio album. While all the sections are well thought out and performed exquisitely, it's the transitions between each song movement that are awkward and off- putting. Either the song halts for a brief moment, or there is a jolting transistion from one part to the next. That gives each song the feeling that it is made up of a number of loose ideas, rather than a cohesive whole.

3 stars for style.

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars 4.5 stars. INVISIBLE are from Argentina and they released 3 albums in the seventies before calling it quits. Luis Spinetta was the leader and an incredible talent. He played lead guitar and sang on the first two albums, but on this the final record they brought in this virtuoso to play lead guitar while Luis sang while still adding some guitar.Their first album blew me away and I gave it 4.5 stars, the second was more laid back and just didn't grab me like the debut so I gave it 3 stars. I really put off listening to this one assuming it would be like the last one but how wrong I was. Sure this is laid back for the most part but it's beyond beautiful, just a gorgeous record that deserves 4.5 stars as well. What a talented band ! I was reminded of the the Italian greats at times with the amazing vocals and incredible instrumental work.

"El Anillo Del Captain Beto" sounds so incredibly good and the Spanish vocals are so moving.The drums beat lightly while the bass throbs and the guitar gently plays. A gorgeous track. "Los Libros De La Buena Memoria" opens with sounds that echo as reserved vocals come in. Some accordion before 3 minutes. A mellow tune. "Alarma Entre Los Angeles" is an instrumental with drums and guitar leading the way early.This one's more dynamic but then it settles in tastefully. Some intricate guitar here as it solos throughout beautifully. "Que Ves El Cielo" is a good track that's laid back with vocals.

"Ruido De Magia" is another gorgeous sounding tune with vocals.Tasteful guitar as the bass throbs.The tempo picks up briefly then it turns dreamy. So moving 4 minutes in. "Doscientos Anos" is pastoral with the focus on the vocals. I like the vocal melodies before 3 1/2 minutes. "Nino Condenado" has a good intro, I like the bass and drums. Vocals before 2 minutes. It kicks in after 2 1/2 minutes. Nice. This is the most powerful passage on the album and it returns around 5 1/2 minutes in.What a song ! Check out the guitar late. "Las Golondrinas De Plaza De Mayo" has this nice laid back rhythm with vocals. An uplifting track.

A must in my opinion for fans of beautiful, melodic music.

Invisible Symphonic Prog

Review by crimson87
Prog Reviewer

4 stars This is the debut album from one of my favourite progressive bands from my country. Invisible's music could be described as a mixture between jazz and psychedelia. But this is not by any means symphonic prog so I warn you on that aspect. The athmosphere on this album is really subtle and misterious , pretty minimalistic I must say.

Spinetta's spanish vocals may remind you of the greatest italian singers from the 70's , but in my opinion his voice is one of a kind. The music is really complex if we take into account that Invisible is just a trio and they didn't include any keyboards on this record. The opener Jugo de Lucuma features some really nice interplay between Pomo and Machi and Spinetta's surreal lyrics really go well with the mood of the song. El diluvio y la pasajera is one of the standout tracks on this release. Starts with some acoustic guitar and does not feature any drumming in the first four minutes , reminding me of Harmonium. It's incredible how they could create a song as good as this one with just bass and guitars! After that point , there comes some jazzy drumming and Spinetta delivers a killing psychedelic guitar solo. The next track Suspension opens with a Black Sabbath/ Led Zep riff and there is quite a contrast created by the majestic vocal work in the beggining. Tema de elmo lesto is a short instrumental and personally , I think is the worst song of the six included here. It sounds like a jam session and the drumming is not as inspired as it's on the rest of the record. However there are some outstanding Luis guitar solos that somewhat save this song. The next track is my second favourite here Asafata del Tren Fantasma has some of Luis best lyrics on his career ( and this guy has edited almost 40 albums including solo works so that's quite a compliment) The track is really tranquil but the band manages to build some tension around it with sudden breaks. Lastly , we have Irregular which is , alongside Jugo de Lucuma , the jazziest track of this release. I really like Pomo's and Machi's performance on this tune.

Overall , I think this record has some minor flaws but it's one of the best jazz fusion oriented albums to come out from my countryin the 70's.

NOTE: The other two tracks that are listed on this site ( La llave del Mandala , and Lo que nos preocupa es esa abuela... )are just bonus tracks that were originally released as singles. In my opinion , this tracks are average at best as any bonus track.

5 stars After their majestic debut album Invisible had to confirm to the public if they were one of those one album wonder bands ( pretty usual in Argentina) or a serious project. And personally speaking , I think they made an improvement over their debut release which was really hard to top anyway. Durazno Sangrando is an album based on a book by Carl Jung and Richard Wilhem called The Secret of the golden Flower. Spinetta was really fond of reading and he got some inspirations for his lyrics from autors like Rimbaud , Artaud ( he dedicated one release to him) , Nietzche , Freud and Michel Foucault among others.

This record is a bit more accesible and less darker than his debut album. It opens with an amazing epic called Encadenado al Anima and then features shorter songs all of them with a jazzy approach. Encadenado.. opens with a spacey section driven by Spinetta's guitar and Pomo's subtle drumming. Luis's vocals share a lot in common with Jon Anderson and some of the greatest RPI singers of the 70's. Suddenly the song breaks into a faster section to become subtle once more this time with some smooth synthetizers on the back. This song is a memorable epic since it has several mood changes and is really well composed. Also I want to add that the lyrics for this song were inspired on a poem written by Luis's father.

The title track is an absolute classic of argentinian rock and one of Spinetta's most popular song. It's just 3 minutes long but holds an undescriptable beauty. If I were to describe this one , I would say it's a cross between some of the early KC ballads like Lady of the dancing water or Cadence and Cascade and some of the most gentle PFM or Celeste moments. The third song Pleamar de Aguilas is not sung by Spinetta but bassist Machi. And altough his voice is a lot different from Luis the result ain't bad. Some may say this song is a little whimsical but it features very good guitarwork from Luis and nice vocal harmonies as well. En una lejana playa del Animus is probably the most laid back song on this record. Being 9 minutes long it starts with some jazzy improvisation and then features some spacey guitars. Luckily the mood of the song changes with a powerful chorus and from that moment on turns on a rocker driven by Spinetta's fantastic guitar solos and Machi's bass groove . Lastly , the record closes with another 3 minute acoustic song with jazzy chord progressions called Dios de Adolesencia. It's a really simple , yet beautiful song which happens to be my favourite on this record.

For those looking for Argentinian prog , Durazno Sangrando is the place to go.It's an essential record from both my country and South American prog.

2 stars Am I missing something here?How can a band like INVISIBLE be categorized as a symphonic prog one?In my humble opinion,this band isn't even progressive,maybe it's prog related or if you like this is 70's rock with jazz/prog touches...And through a quick search in the net,I didn't find any indications that this band ever played symphonic prog...Musically the band plays a mix of psych/jazz/classic rock,at least in this debut album,which was released back in 1974...

So,speaking about the tracks we have to deal with a variety of rock styles,but the overall mood of the album closes to the genre of late 60's/early 70's psych.The opener ''Jugo de lucuma'' is an average jazz/rock track,while in ''El diluvio...'' the band delivers pure psych/prog with soft touches of LED ZEPPELIN.In ''Suspencion'' the heavy guitar and bass lines remind of the doom/stoner of early BLACK SABBATH and ''Tema de elmo...'' which follows is a ZEPPELIN-like unnecessary boring instrumental track.''Azafata'' is another average too long track with the only interesting thing is some great psych bass lines and drums.''La llave...'' is another SABBATH-like track of little interest,while in the classic rock- influenced closer ''Lo que nos ocupa'' we meet again the familiar ZEPPELIN sound...

In general I would say that this is a decent album but unfortunately I wouldn't recommend it to any progressive rock fan as this album is mostly straightforward classic rock with psych and jazz elements and very few prog touches...Collectors or fans of psych/classic rock might find it interesting,pure prog fans should avoid,as there is nothing revolutionary,captivating or adventuruous to find in this release...2 or maybe 2.5 stars...

5 stars First of all I would like to say that I don't agree with the fact that Invisible is labeled as Symphonic Prog.The term Jazz fusion would suite them much better.I think that this is important because this may confuse newcomers to the band (especially not spanish speakers)

This is the third and last album by this trio , who has now become a quartet due to the inclusion of guitar virtuoso Tomas Gubitsch.When listening to Spinetta's albums lyrics are a very important aspect so probably non spanish speakers won't be able to appreciate this at first , specially with this album that manages to build a very prominent porteño feel (by the way porteños are the citizens of Buenos Aires).

That being said , the album is mainly a blend of rock , jazz and tango. You can appreciate that due to the work of guest mucisians like bandeonists Juan Jose Mosalini and Rodolfo Mederos.If I were asked about the album's standout tracks I would say that they are the opener El anillo del Capitan Beto , whose lyrics are about the loliness a common man who was a bus driver feels when he is put on a space voyage , reminding his relatives and little every day stuff that he misses so much.

The other standout tracks are Los libros de la buena memoria and the instrumental Alarma entre los Angeles.Lastly I'll add that this album is a landmark in argentinian and latin american progressive music and deserves to be listened by every fan.
