Raised out of the ashes of a band called Radio Clip,RC2 came to birth at late 90's in the capital of Venezuela,Caracas.After some changes in the line-up and the release of several demos,the band entered the studio at the end of year 2001.About six months of rehearsals were enough for the band to finish their debut album,which carried as a title the name of the group,and contained 10 compositions,some of them were totally new tracks,while some of them were re-worked tracks from the older demos.The year 2003 was the one for RC2,as this work finally came to public...

The band notifies CAMEL,RUSH,MARILLION,YES and GENESIS as their biggest influences.After several careful listenings I would say that this band sounds very much like ENCHANT or a lighter version of the mexican band AGORA.Though it is evident that the tracks are very carefully arranged,this album didn't grow on me.The vocals leave me totally cold,too mellow at most of the moments,with just a few elements of real expression,except maybe from the track ''Soledad'',which is a dramatic one.Then comes the song structure,which have a typical rock song format with over-repetitive choruses,a factor almost opposite to what I call ''progressive rock''.Yes,however there are two 14-min. epics.But ''Fria'',after a decent 6-min. instrumental section,contains an over-repetitive chorus,while ''Se pierde de sol'' has a more epic-structure format with changing moods,but at the end I find it rather boring and I prefer ''Fria'' from the two of them.

RC2's is an album for those who like a non-adventurous type of hard prog rock with a few up and downs and mostly song-structured tracks with some nice keyboard flights.Personally I prefer a bit of adventure in my music so this work comes a lit flat to me...
