5 stars This work of the North Americans with Latin roots is without a doubt a clear sample of a recycled rock and adjust for the present generations, but easily and if it is had a customary ear to the progressive one in most of the styles we can sees that they are a compendium of styles that go from the power of the RIO happening through the trasmutados passages of the Avant Garde, coqueteando to usanza of KING CRIMSON, implorando storms style PINK FLOYD, YES and until ELP, by this it is not a bad work I want to clarify, seems to me if an opportunity so that the people that has decided to listen to know them that she is what they do, imposing sound if, upset rates that seem to disturb if, but I am not impressed, I have read each things in the network about them who in truth and with the respect that deserves to me its opinion this is not a revealing disc but well if a restaurador of the things imposed in the past, is not necessary to let give merito this work that in case it is good, the interpretation all a work of art and the system of recording clearly supported with many economic resources and a disquera of world-wide reaches, thing that strangely sees in the progressive rock, speaking of more of the final sound I will say to them that if is worth the trouble to pay the price of the disc because it sees desire and listens to much the soul, to my in the personnel it was not done as they say to me that way extreme dense, is smooth with pleasant changes and intense rates but nothing that anybody customary to KING CRIMSON and MAGMA cannot understand, in parts very traveled looking for space horizons, the suite "Cassandra Geminni" is but the impressive thing that can be listened of this disc and I agree with the writing in Manticornio is classic an instantaneous one or that will be it of course, a disc for those who are dangerous and with an open mind (in fact all the progressive rock demands this), affluent work made and taken to its culmination of a way very respectable and the best works of a 2005 indispensable one more to the list.
