4 stars After listening to this album of the band TRIANA, I've got to correct my assumption, that EL PATIO was their best effort. I really like HIJOS DEL AGOBIO more than that one, maybe because the flamenco influence is a bit less obvious. Still it's in some way difficult for me to cope with DeLaRosas passoniate vocals, but disregarding this it contains more features that sound interesting for my taste.

The title song is quite emotional, but having some nice electric guitar lines and mellotron tunes. Rumor is a more uptempo one, but nothing special in fact. The third one as well is only a passionate song about some lost love. Recuerdos de Triana has a quite nice percussion solo after starting with some electronic sounds. The first interesting one so far and starting from this one the album is really becoming a very good one. Best songs are !Ya esta bien!, has some flamenco-type acoustic guitar, but not too obvious, since the song is more dominated by electric guitar and Necesito with good electric guitar lines and nice atmospheric keyboard walls layered on top. Sr. Troncoso is a pure acoustic song and quite nice. Del crepusculo lento nacera el rocio, the last song again has great electric guitar play after a rather flamenco-type beginning. then there is again an acoustic part followed by a quite dramatic final with keyboards.

I'd like to say this is their most interesting one and the only one deserving to be called an essential album in any prog collection in myview.

Recommended as well for prog fans who are not that much into flamenco music.
