4 stars Prog in euskera.

A fine mixture of folk, jazz, funk, blues, rock 'n roll and symphonic rock settled with euskera lyrics (which I hardly understand as I write this review). Although it has it's bombastic moments, the music is not over-complicated, making it also easy-listening for the most part (in a good way, not the radio-friendly one); also it lacks the pomp factor of many other prog acts without losing the progressive inflection of the music. The basque folk is not omnipresent, though there are certain moments (which are not so certain). The musicianship is superb and doesn't consist of " in-your-face" licks, rather than every instrument doing their rightful share. The vocals are warm and filled with inspiration, and they don't tend to be over-emotional either.

One of my favourite tracks is "Nagusiaren nigarrak", which comprises the funk, symphonic, jazz and folk in a 5 minute song, along with some rare spoken words in the middle. For the most part is a great relaxing album consisting of short rocking songs and nice acoustic ditties like "Bakea" and "Emazte", which works along a nice symphonic ambience.

A deserved 4-star rating in my book, or should I say "Lau"?

With nothing more to add, I say "Agur".

Chus | 4/5 |
