Review by ZowieZiggy
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars This is quite an incomprehensible step backwards.

This is my tenth review of this band who started their career in the middle nineties playing some heavy / punk rock which had little to do with prog actually. The band changed their musical direction in 2001 with "Convivencia Sagrada" and reached their peak with the excellent "Folklore".

When one listens to the opening number, here the feel of their debuts fills your ears, unfortunately. A real shame actually! Gone is the prog they have produced the last five albums and back are the weird sounds.

A track as "Refugio" is the only one that can be considered as a fine piece of music: elegant vocals and good music.

If you want ever to listen to some sort of a Spanish version of "The Clash" or "The Saints", I strongly recommend you "Quiebran". Nice punk, but what else??? In the same mood is "Eyéctenlo" (kick him out). That's what they should deserve?

This album is very short (thirty-five minutes), which is a positive point under these circumstances. I don't dislike punk (on the contrary) but I wouldn't have expected "Pez" to go back to their roots after some fifteen years.

On a webpage from an Argentinean site, one can read that this album was recorded in two sessions: no miracle! Even if the rock ballad "Alada" is another good song (but with a terrible production).

"Volverán" sounds vaguely like a "Stranglers" song ("Sometimes" comes to my mind) thanks to some organ work probably. But this one is loudly and little attractive (especially during the middle instrumental section). And the closing "Sueño" is no better.

This album is a huge disappointment. Three out of ten should be the rate. The title "El Porvenir" means : the future. I hope they'll do better next time.
