Excellent debut album from one of Argentinas best groups, which included Daddy Antogna from Orions Beethoven; very spacey psychedelic progressive from 1974, featuring the sweet Ausencia, the moody El absurdo y la melodía, and the great guitars and organ of Gritos; the best track might well be the long improvised instrumental Viva Bélgica; a very good effort, full of shifting rhythms and rich melodies.
Ave Rock were Argentinas version of a progressive Deep Purple; great guitar driven heavy prog/psych drenched in tons of Hammond organ. Songs are very well developed with some nice mood variations and dynamic arrangements. Although there are some vocals they play a minor role as the album is mostly instrumental.
The entire album is pretty trippy and spacey, with tons of guitar, bass, drum and Hammond interplay. I Clearly one of the classics of Argentinian rock, and a fantastic record.
