3 stars IBIO's "Cuevas De Altamira" is a wonderful symphonic prog album full of Spanish - folk twists. "Cuevas De Altamira" blends fine keyboard work (moog, synths, and lots if mellotron) with excellent guitar, bass and complex progressive drumming. Songs are rich and full with spanish guitar interludes and traces of folk. Although this four piece band only managed to release this one album, it will absolutely please your ears. Not sure I really get the big allusion as many suggest to the work of "The STRAWBS" to be honest. I guess the similarity rests in both their liberal use of mellotron and mix of both folk and progressive music elements throughout. Overall a great international prog album with some truly magical moments. Highly recommended!
