In a few words:
Last Tango is Esperanto's third and also last album that was released in 1975. The album could be categorized as progressive rock, but, it incorporates many different musical styles: some kind of jazz ("In Search Of A Dream"), tango (the self-title is an excellent "rock tango"), soul ("Busy Doing Nothing") and even pop ("Obsession"). The strange with this band is that apart from the typical rock instruments they have two violins and a cello, that give a more dramatic and symphonic tone in their sound. It should be mentioned the excellent cover of Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby" that opens this great album, as well as the epic "Rape", which has a powerful arrangement that follows the lyrical part. Last but not least, the voice of Kim Moore gives extra credit to the songs. Beautiful album...
