4 stars TRYO are a power trio from Chile who blend Jazz, spacey soundscapes, and flat out heavy Rock music on this recording. There is so much variety on this album, and it did take some time for this to grow on me, but now I love this band. This is complex and enjoyable music that is pretty much all instrumental except for one track.

The album opens with a four part suite that is about the Port of Valparaiso. It starts off with "Valparaiso Psicodelico" as we hear different sounds from the sea and the city. 1 1/2 minutes in it we get some music as a spacey atmosphere arrives.The bass is prominant in this spacey tune as cello comes in late. "Juegos" opens with samples of children as strummed acoustic guitar and cello lead the way. "Puerto" is another acoustic song as cello, guitar and drums provide the music as the song opens with the sounds of ships and sea gulls. The final song of the suite is "Marina". It opens with the sounds of someone under water. This is another acoustic track. The acoustic guitar melodies are quite intricate and the cello helps fill out the sound. The song ends as it began.

"Camino" is a short spacey song,while "Contrastes" gives us some energy for the first time on this album. An uptempo song that reminds me of RUSH until it veers off to a jazzy direction. Some great guitar and bass follow. "Requadros" continues the jazzy music until we get a heavy passage 2 1/2 minutes in. Nice. "Estudio" is the first song where I hear KING CRIMSON-like sounds. This is one of my favourites on the album, but it's way too short. "Danza Del Furor" consists of cello, guitar and what sounds like xylophone. "Justicia" is my favourite song on this album. This is also the longest track. It has a nice, heavy and melodic soundscape that picks up speed 3 minutes in. What an amazing song ! "Grieta" is another inspiring song that just rocks ! This one has vocals on it with some ripping guitar melodies. "Epilogo" is a short heavy song.

As I said in the beginning this album has some good variety on it, and these guys can play with the best of them. 4 solid stars.
