4 stars Bubu and Banana from Argentina share the honour for having arguably the worst name for a progressive rock band.

Bubu's Anabelas is one of the most unique albums to come out of Argentinian progressive rock movement and still quite original at international level, too.

The strongest influence is born by King Crimson from years 72-74, there are Argentinian folk traits with violin and flute, dissonant and avantgarde moments full of sophistication. Some moments in the first track I could even attribute to Anglagard, in the flute and dissonant parts.

The only three tracks are go so well together after each other that you won't notice the end and start of each other.

Most of music is instrumental, thankfully, for the vocal is pretty average.

The first, the longest track, is the best one and very well developed. Chorals remind me of another Argentinian band, MIA.

The third track is played at fast pace for its first half before getting into a more reflective sung parts followed by instrumental cresciendo.

A very good and packed album although not representative of Argentinian 70's prog-rock.
