3 stars The Peruvian progressive rock band FRAGIL was founded in 1976 and gained quite huge success back then. Bands such as GENESIS and YES inspired them, and they took their name from the YES album "Fragile" (1972). I have never before heard a progressive rock band from Peru, but my first experience is quite good. I guess that there isn't many progressive rock bands in Peru however. FRAGIL have released four albums and this is a re-edition of their first album "Avenida Larco" from 1981. Their sound is very beautiful, often dreamy and dominated by typical 80's sounding polyphonic synthesisers and lyrics in Spanish. Besides the GENESIS and YES influences there's also some reminiscences to bands such as IQ, MARILLION and PENDRAGON. The tracks are rather short for being progressive rock, and my favourites are the opening "Obertura", the title track "Avenida Larco", "Esto Es Numinacion", "Hombres Solos (El Caiman) and "Lizy". A good album and interesting because it's originated from Peru. Check it out!
