Prog Reviewer
3 stars Los Canarios' only true prog album is an adaptation to the Tales From Topographic Oceans format of Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Unlike many prog bands who took the "rocking the classics" route of producing rock cover versions of classical music, the group don't take the usual Keith Emerson approach of trying to get the keyboards to do absolutely everything whilst the guitar and drums provide rhythm and perhaps the odd shot of flavour; there are several sections where the guitar takes the lead in mimicing the classical orchestra, in fact.

The result is a decent album with a fairly diverse sound, although the performances don't quite hold my attention over the entire double album format and I never find prog covers of classical compositions to be as compelling as original symphonic prog songs. Three stars seems fair.

Warthur | 3/5 |
