Whoa II

Canarios, Ciclos (Ariola 1974)
I'm all about breakbeats and hairy prog-rock lately. Recently re-excavated this album I bought on a trip to Barcelona in 2002 that I had listened to but never really listened to ..... Spanish rock reinterpretation of Vivaldi's Four Seasons, bending 1970s state-of-the-art kbd. squall, prog gtr. wank and stomping drums into symphonic complexity. May not sound like a winning formula but there are some jawdropping moments. (Song titles are approximate ... it's hard to tell where one ends and the next begins since each side is a long suite. Consider these excerpts from sides 1, 3 and 4 respectively.)

Canarios - "Genesis"

Canarios - "Pequeno Concerto Extravagante"

Canarios - "Crisis"
