The Review:

Pollo Del Mar (Chicken of the Sea) first came to my attention when I received a package from Musick Recordings which contained a promo pack as well as a jewel case cd of The Golden State. Basically Pollo Del Mar combines classic surf rock ala Dick Dale and fuses it with symphonic and progressive elements with occasional leanings to jazz-fusion. In addition to the original music on the album they have a rocking rendition of Griegís Hall Of The Mountain King.

The Golden State is a very good addition to fanís of instrumental guitar rock and it would be a welcomed addition to us prog lovers. Please do yourself a favor and check out the samples on the bandís website then purchase a copy today.
