    Posted: October 30 2011 at 10:21
I've been a fan of Senogul's music since they released Tr?nsitos and I was floored by their 2007 s/t album, showcasing their eclecticism and affinity to various styles of music, from flamenco to tango to rock to jazz etc.

I've featured that album and the band here in the forum in various previous threads, and now that they've released their new album III it is time to do so again. Read reviews here.

Again, they show their quality craftsmanship at songwriting and musicianship, and write lovely melodies that mingle a variety of influences.

Here's the post I dedicated to the album on my blog:

The Spanish eclectics return...
Senogul is a band that wears the tag Eclectic proudly on their sleeves. The musicians in this band are not afraid to wet their toes, and even their entire feet, inside waters of all kind. Be it rock, jazz, flamenco, avant-garde, samba, tango, electronic, classical, you name it.
Senogul's latest release, III, not only continues this path of theirs, but even broadens it. In here, you will hear diverse styles, a plethora of influences, all intertwined into a coherent piece of modern progressive music. 

This album is a non-stop musical ride that travels various landscapes and gives you a taste of all those different places. While this has the potential to be incoherent and messy, in Senogul's hands you are safe. These talented musicians weave a tapestry of alluring melodies in multiple guises and styles. If you liked what you heard on their 2007 s/t album (which I reviewed here), you'll love what they present here. An even more eclectic collection of compositions, tight musicianship, liveliness and upbeat spirit and of course beautiful tunes.

Thumbs Up
 
Just listened to it yesterday (this morning.....) on progstreaming. A wonderful disc for sure. Modern progressive rock that cannot be lumped into "retro". I'll be picking it up soon.
 
 
PS - Somebody with the authority should update the album page with the lineup. Smile

I do like this band. Deserving of far more attention than they currently get.

Oh is it?
 
I checked yesterday (this morning) and it wasn't. Unless I'm confusing it with a different album. Embarrassed
