2 stars Alms is a Prog-Rock project created by Spanish multi-instrumentalist Aitor Lucena Martinez. An Irosmic Tragedy is a concept album representing the phases of life, namely childhood, adulthood and elderhood structured in three tracks and 42 minutes in length.

The three tracks have a mixture of Spanish and English words and lyrics. Aitor is certainly a talented multi-musician. The tracks are very classically oriented, which okay with me as I am rather partial to classical music. Aitor says he has been strongly influenced by the likes of Genesis, ELP, Gentle Giant, Mike Oldfield and Pink Floyd and it certainly reflects that in this album.

Musically the three tracks are very similar in their sound and structure with long instrumental parts with sporadic lyrics or spoken words. Unfortunately I heard nothing in this album which excited me to recommend it and I still don't know what "Irosmic" means!
