4 stars I had not listened to La Desooorden's Ciudad de Papel in a while, and had been revisiting the past gods a lot (Genesis, Tull, Gentle Giant,.....) When I looked at my collection and spotted this, I thought - why not, I kind of liked it the first time I spun the disc.

Man, it quickly blew me away. From the beautiful Ange styled vocals, to the child like instruments/vocals, to the power house prog rock, this is a seriously wonderful listen. I love the mix of sax, as it really adds that other element that is needed to take something from good, to fantastic.

The writing is mature, the production second to none, and the overall feel is a perfect blending of old/new prog, a touch of RIO, and just that wonderful South American feel. The percussion work is another real accent that seperates La Desooorden's Ciudad de Papel from the rest.

Don't let the non-English language hold you back on this one, even though I don't understand a word of it, the art of the vocals in their native language only proves to enhance the experience.

For you older listeners like myself, we who were lucky enough to be there at the beginning of this life changing thing called progressive rock, this is new styled progressive rock, but with a wonderful ethnic/real world feel to it - something new that inspires. This is a great album, and a new hope of competing with my early heroes!

As always, thanks for listening, and thanks to Prog Archives!
