Canarios - Ciclos. 1974 Spain


Canarios were a pop band prior to this album, and they could not have changed any more dramatically than on Ciclos. The album features four LP side long overblown symphonic rock numbers, loosely based on Vivaldi's Four Seasons. It's a sincere effort, extremely well thought out and complex. For some, it probably represents a parody of the entire progressive rock genre. I think it's great.

  1. There was also an official CD release by BMG-Ariola Spain in 1993. Probably the most faithful reproduction to the original vinyl.
