4 stars I think the closest reference point to this album would be the also all instrumental "The Snow Goose" from CAMEL. These Spaniards play mostly flute and keyboard led songs that are fairly light, although there are some outbreaks of guitar and heavier drums at times.

The first song has a title longer then my arm called "Escenes De La Terra Festa I De La Mar En Calma" which opens with keys,flute and drums before it gets dreamy 2 minutes in with synths and flute. There are some string-synths as well in this song. "Imprompt I" has some beautiful passages in it that just shine ! The percussion and flute, as well as the outbreak of guitar 4 minutes in that is followed with a flute solo all sound amazing. Great tune. "Jocs Docells" has some nice flute and fender rhodes piano with string-synths in the background. The song speeds up when the drums come in.

"La Revolucio" opens with keys and flute that are joined by clapping as the melody gets louder. "Danca D'estiu" leads off with flute, and has a flury of keys as well as acoustic guitar and organ. "I Tu Que Ho Veies Tot Tan Facil" has some scorching guitar 2 1/2 minutes in and an organ solo to follow. The final song "Historia D'una Gota D'aigua" opens with some classical guitar and I believe we have two flutes playing as the organ comes in and flutes stop. They come back bringing with them some guitar melodies. Drums are added and I have to say this song is the absolute highlight of this album ! The final 5 minutes or so are just a pleasure to experience.

It's pretty hard for me to get too excited about this record overall, but it is an excellent record and well worth checking out.
