    Late '70s Spanish progressive outfit which in many ways is typical of the other bands from that country. They mix excellent guitar (a trademark of bands from Spain) with Spanish folk influences. Vocals are in Spanish, in the Andalusian style. These albums are nice, but they are not the best that Spain has to offer. For the Spain novice, I recommend to check out Bloque, Triana, Crack, Mezquita and Granada. -- Juan Joy
    Elixir, the only Azahar I have heard, is very good Spanish prog with hints of middle eastern influences often heard in Spanish prog. Style-wise, Azahar are in the vein of Mezquita, though not quite as good. Dominated by distinctive guitar style, over layers of synth. When they use acoustic guitar, they sound somewhat comparable to Triana, but with less obvious flamenco influences. The electric guitar can get very intense. The synth textures and tones is very reminiscent of Mezquita. The instrumentals are very nice, starting with a subdued theme and building layer upon layer to a climax. Vocals, in Spanish, are kind of rough but not overbearing. -- Mike Taylor
