4.0 out of 5 stars Flamenco Prog-Rock February 17, 2011
Format:Audio CD
It's been quite a surprise to find a Triana CD review on Amazon, especially since it's been quite a long time since this group disbanded. I started listening to them in 1978, when this album came out, and rapidly got the previous album "El Patio", very difficult to find even in Spain. I think the originality of this band lies in the fact that they sound absolutely "Spanish" (or maybe better said "Flamenco") while at the same time reminiscent of prog British bands like King Crimson, Pink Floyd or Genesis. Arguably one of the best Spanish bands at the time, they suffered from poor technical facilities both at the studio and live but nevertheless managed to push Spanish rock music to maturity. While "El Patio" suffers from a poorer sound, it is absolutely superior to "Hijos Del Agobio", which on the other hand benefits from a richer sound and more careful presentation. Great music anyway, and deserving close listening with an open mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album of flamenco prog November 10, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Triana is without a doubt the best known and most successful prog rock band to come out of Spain and it's really not hard to see why. Certainly the band was off with a slow start (their 1975 debut El Patio sold poorly) but by their third album, Sombra y Luz (1979) they were famous in their home country. 1977's Hijos del Agobio was their second album, released on the Movie Play label (as was all their albums until Jesus de le Rosa's death in 1983), and it sold better than their debut thanks to a high profile festival held in Madrid, if I'm not mistaken. There's a big reason why Triana was popular in their home country: their music was quite accessible, included local cultural elements in their music, and unlike a Gentle Giant album, you don't need to listen to it many times to "get it". It's actually pretty accessible prog, in fact someone had pretty much described them as a flamenco version of the Moody Blues. I notice some Pink Floyd and Crimson elements as well. Like the more obscure early '70s British prog rock acts (like Spring, Cressida, Beggars Opera, Gracious, etc.), Triana was more interested in writing and recording great songs (and giving it that Spanish touch which obviously differentiate them from those British acts, of course), than going for tons of tempo changes every second, yet the music is progressive enough for the prog rock fan who don't always need Gentle Giant complexity to enjoy it (although of course GG released a handful of albums up to 1975 that are totally essential). Triana has that instantly recognizable sound, no doubt helped by the vocals of keyboardist Jesus de la Rosa and flamenco guitar from Eduaro Rodriguez R. (although some electric guitar appears, courtesy of guest Antonio Perez). Read more ›
