4 stars Outstanding short-lived progressive rock act,who released only two albums-milestones of the Argentinian prog rock scene-,before fading in time.They were formed in 1974 in Buenos Aires and found a stable line-up before the recording of their debut,featuring Uruguayan drummer Gonzalo Farrugia (ex-Psiglo).''Crucis'' saw the light in 1976 and it's one of the best examples of killer symph/jazz-oriented progressive rock.The album is full of up-tempo compositions,characterized by the endless changing climates and moods and the high-skilled interplays between guitars/keyboards,while bass and drums also get in the game quiet often.CRUCIS do not forget that they were above all a rock band,so sometimes their sound flirts with the hard/progressive territory.The final result is an album close to the likes of jazzy-FOCUS blended with a hard/symph/prog taste not unlike MUSEO ROSENBACH.One of the best progressive works,at a time when this sophisticated style of music was facing a crisis.
