Congreso - Viaje Por La Cresta Del Mundo (1981)

The fifth album from this band from Chile.

The band was an eight piece big band with a lineup of drums, percussion, marimba, bass, charango, cello, guitars, flute, tarka, melodica, piano and vocals.

The band has reached the five albums milestone.

The band is normally a folk rock band. So the music on this album came as a bit of a surprise.

A positive surprise too. 

The music on this forty-three minutes long album is still rooted in folk music and rock. But the main part is pretty eclectic with a great deal of progressive rock and some fusion.

The vocals are really good and so is the instruments.

The songs are still melodic. This album is therefore not an avant-garde album although it is pretty much avant-garde compared to most of the folk rock scene.

The songs are also well crafted and has a lot of interesting details.

The music is very good and this is by far their best album so far.

Check out this very good album.

3.5 points
