Iceberg - Arc-en-ciel (1979)
The fourth and final album from this Spanish band.
Iceberg was a quartet with a lineup of percussion, piano, drums, synths, guitars and bass.
I have earlier this month reviewed their debut album in this blog. You will find this review here.
Three years ago, I reviewed their second and third album for # 1 of this blog and you can find the reviews here and here.
The band has delivered good albums in the fusion genre. OK, their debut album was more a hard rock album, though.
The band continues on here from their third album Sentiments from 1977. Fusion in the vein of Return To Forever and Mahavishnu Orchestra. More the first band than the latter band.
There is a lot of strong guitar and synth solos here backed up by some strong bass and drums. The music is very groovy too throughout these forty minutes.
Some of the piano and synths reminds me about Chick Corea. And that is both an observation and a compliment.
The tempo is mid to fast tempo. It is very groovy, this music.
There is no great tracks here. But this is a solid, good album which will please anyone into fusion.
