5 stars After the release of many good albums, the band is back with another symphonic adventure of epics songs. This is another concept album about the relation between human and the technology. And it is just what the music here is illustrating ; a modern symphonic prog rock style with heavier moments display by a heavy guitar sound only possible because of the modern technology of today. As usual, the music has a lot of quiet and beautiful atmosphere where the melody is carried slowly. The addition of sax and trumpet will make you think of VDGG and Pink Floyd, but the influences of those bands including Yes and Genesis are not obvious because the music has that unique Cuban type of Prog Rock. The keyboards lines are more upfront that those bands, but not as much as ELP. I really enjoyed the way the bass lines are flying throughout this album, also the new vocalist voice Bermudez is not bad.The band has the talent to bring the vocals at the right time after long instrumentals and majestic parts. The tree first songs are never boring and the song "Clocking Heart" is the only step back from that excellent album with a relaxed jazzy atmosphere. "Flowers" is less adventurous, but very catchy with a nice guitar solo , and the singer's voice seems a bit forced here. "Train to the Future" is another highlight of the album with a fast tempo pace where all instruments are shining. The last song is some acoustic and a more vocals- oriented song containing another beautiful ending with the electric guitar.
