Caja De Pandora - Caja De Pandora (1981)


The one and only album from this Mexican band.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of guitars, keyboards, drums and bass.

Not much is known about this band who released this album in the year where their kind of music was as popular as the covid virus is these days.

Yes, progressive rock. Symphonic prog and it is instrumental. That did not go down well with the music crowd.....

But the album is here and available now after two re-releases. Both with three bonus tracks. My review is of the 1981 LP version.

Camel is the first reference that springs to mind when listening to these forty odd minutes of music.
There are also some prog metal here too and hard prog. Nevertheless, this is a symphonic prog album.

The sound is OK and the band does a good job on some sub-standard tracks. This album is rather dull and does not really offer much of any interest for progheads.

This album is pretty decent and only those, like me, who want their record collection of Mexican prog rock complete would bother about this album.

1.5 points
