Supernova - Rock Sinfonica: 1. Un Punto Infinito (1998)
The debut album this Argentine band.
Supernova was a trio with a lineup of synths, flute, bass, drums and percussion.
This short lived band released two albums before they gave up the ghost. Both to be reviewed in this blog/has been reviewed in this blog.
This trio played symphonic prog in the vein of ELP and Rick Wakeman.
There is also a lot of neo-classical music on this album. Well, most of it is neo-classical.
We get seventy minutes of this symphonic prog and neo-classical music. The music is melodic too.
The flutes are adding some organic life into this synth-fest.
There is a lot of synth cascades and bombastic melodies. Unfortunate, none of the melodies and not much of the music here makes any sense. The famous classical piece Fortuna, which closes this album, has been mangled and destroyed on this album by Supernova. A very poor piece of music.
The other pieces of music here sounds unfinished and not ready for human consumption.
This is nowhere near a good album. It is not too bad and there is some talent here. This album is a decent enough album and just that.
