Sintesis - En Busca De Una Nueva Flor (1978)

The debut album from this band from Cuba who so far has released eleven albums. 

Sintesis is a nine piece band on this album. Which normally means a lot of instruments. Well, not in this case. The lineup is harpiscord, Moog, piano, drums, bass, keyboards, guitars and lots of male and female Spanish vocals. 

My guiding light ProgArchives lists this as a folk rock band. Which is right. But not necessary for this album. What we get here is very flowery and pastoral symphonic prog in the good old Italian symph prog vein. 

The songs are not particular long. But the music is so flowery that we are talking about a rose garden here. The sound is also very flowery. The Moog and the harpiscord adds a lot of class to this album too. Fans of Italian prog rock will love this album. The male and female vocals are also great. In particular the female vocals.

There is no real great songs here. Nevertheless, this is a very good album which will appeal to everyone. Get it.

3.5 points
