3 stars I was disappointed by this album but I have to admit it's well performed and well produced. I simply find most of the songs to be dull. The opening five come off as throbbing bass-and-drum-driven background music. Extensive dissonance throughout the album lends a nice ambiance, spacey zeuhl for sure, but I'm still grasping for a cohesive musical package here. After a couple of listens, each time has left me bored and craving something that follows more harmonic and melodic progression.

The last two tracks, "Mictlan" and "Topan" stand out as being a little better and more varied, but they're still quite repetitive. It feels like most of the ideas on this album could have been adequately developed in half the play time.
