3 stars Yes , this album can be classified as Folk-prog . This is the only album I heard from them, so I do not know if they always sound like this, but this album was quite enjoyable. Amarok's Mujer Luna (Lady Moon) is a predominantly acoustic album with many mysterious ambiances a proghead is generally looking for. This feeling is reinforced by the regular use of many unusual instruments generally found on world music records (and in some Embryo and agitation free albums of the early 70's).

However we are not in the realm of groups such as Sweden's In The Labyrinth. Amarok stays very much symphonic and if the use of a didgeridoo, darboukas, kalimbas and other is noticeable, the general feel stays close to the western hemisphere of music. Tierra Austral is my fave track but they have another two or three stand out tracks in Arabesca and Sueno Suenos (pig's pig).

A few lesser tracks actually hinders a better rating, such as Donde Esta Mi Amor etc... Definitely worth a spin but this album is hardly essential.
