4 stars This is a solid album by Mexican prog band: CAST. It's too bad that this band, especially this album, has received little attention by prog lovers. The music offered by Cast in "Endless Signs" is actually excellent in music composition and performance. The only problem with this album is in its production. I don't know why I have never found any album of Cast which has excellent production especially in the sonic quality of the CD. This has impacted into listening pleasure of this "supposedly" a wonderful album which has been capped by the limit of the production quality. Composition-wise I can see there is relatively high music density performed by the band. The combined work of keyboard by Vidales and smooth howling guitar by Hernandes is actually stunning especially when it's combined with powerful drum work. The music is actually a combination of Genesis, Camel and a bit of ELP. In most cases, the keyboard work is much more dynamic than Tony Banks in Genesis. The melodies of each track are also good and they all blend nicely with the music. I can imagine if this album is recorded with the same sonic quality of Genesis "Selling England By The Pound" it will definitely create clearer sounds reproduction. I have no problem with all songs in this album, in fact, I like them all because the music is quite complex and packed. This album is another favorite of mine in addition to "Angels and Demons" album. Keep on proggin' ..!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
