4.0 out of 5 stars Good debut and second album by this Mexican prog band October 30, 2008
Format:Audio CD
There's no doubt about it that Iconoclasta is Mexico's best-known and best progressive rock band. They appeared in the early 1980s at a time when most of the rest of the world had moved on to other things. This is the original Iconoclasta with guitarist Ricardo Moreno, his sister Rosa Moreno on keyboards, guitarist Ricardo Ortegon, bassist Nohemi D'Rubin, and drummer Victor Baldovinos. In 1983 comes their self-entitled debut, and it really sounds like Mexico was really behind the times musically, because this album sounds more like it was recorded in 1975 than 1983, but it was a 1983 recording. Keyboards are strictly '70s here: Wurlitzer electric piano, String Ensemble, ARP 2600 (it sounds like one on that last cut, "Fuera de Casa") and others. Strange to hear no early '80s polyphonic synths in a 1983 recording. Well, it seems like the Italian prog scene was a big influence of this five piece group consisting of three males (Ricardo Moreno, Ricardo Ortegon, Victor Baldovinos) and two females (Rosa Moreno, Nohemi D'Rubin), there is more than a passing resemblance to PFM's Per Un Amico, go listen to "Memorias De Un Hechicero", the acoustic guitar playing from Ricardo Moreno will no doubt make you think "Il Banchetto". There are some fusion tendencies in this piece as well. "Estudio VI" has more of a Spanish feel, complete with Spanish guitar (played by Ricardo Moreno, once again, as Ricardo Ortegon tends to play fuzzed lead electric guitar). "Manantial" is another great example of how '70s sounding this album sounds, with those '70s sounding string synths and nice symphonic arrangements. Read more ›
