4 stars The liner notes and lyrics are all in Spanish but the music really said a lot to me. Oh, there is a black and white picture of the band walking along a pathway, and the guy in the middle is wearing a RUSH t-shirt. I like them already !

The record opens with a short intro song of samples before we get to "Locuzco". It opens with pounding drums, organ and Eddie Vedder like vocals.Yes the PEARL JAM singer, very similar sounding vocals which for me is a good thing. The song slows down a minute in to great effect.This is heavy folks.The song speeds back up with synths and then a guitar solo. We get an atmospheric interlude 5 minutes in until the song starts to build to guitar solos, organ and drums. "Engendrando Ciegos" opens with the sound of water running as a guitar melody comes in leading to a full sound a minute in. And it sounds great ! The vocals are so well done. When the soundscape softens it is so uplifting and heavenly. We get some more guitar solos before a jazzy sound of light drums and piano comes in at the 6 minute mark. Heavy organ play and synths too before this ones over. "El Atras" opens with a someone lighting a match and lots of drums, organ and vocals follow. This song gets better as it goes. Nice guitar solos later in the song.

The next three songs are under the heading "Judas" starting with "Part1 La Locura" which features lots of piano melodies that remind me of Kevin Moore's play on the CHROMA KEY record "Dead Air For Radios". "Part II Dolor" opens with piano then fragile vocals come in.The song becomes quite powerful with passionate vocals. "Part III La Culpa" again opening with piano as pounding drums and guitar melodies take over, and they are outstanding ! A jazzy interlude follows and the piano is beautiful. "Acta Non Verba" is a Spanish sounding tune that has some gentle to scorching guitar solos. Some good synth work and I was reminded of PORCUPINE TREE around the 5 minute mark. The drumming is top notch. "El Gran Viaje" is a short instrumental of guitar melodies and synth washes. Nice. "Un Planeta En Mi Retrovisor" has an uptempo intro that turns atmospheric before the melody speeds up again with a long scorching guitar solo and those Vedder-like vocals. The song ends with nice piano melodies and vocals. "Ambar" is a good heavy tune with synths, drums and vocals being the prominant sounds. This is such an amazing song ! Some more great guitar solos later.

We have to get the word out about this great band ! I was hard pressed to find anything about them except here on Prog Archives from Eric and Cesar. 4.5 stars. P.S. In talking with the vocalist he informed me that each of the members (except for the bassist) are engineers, the bass player is an architect. Smart and talented.
