3 stars When I realized Time's Forgotten got into studio to record their second album I was so excited. I daily checked up their website's forums just to know the day it was finally going to be released. A Relative Moment of Peace was an amazing debut from the band so Dandelion, their second attempt, promised to be even better.

This time we have a heavier album, there are great ambient melodies and strong compositions. Drums sound this time is superb, something that really failed in their debut and I'm talking specifically about the sound not the playing which in both albums are excellent.

Unfortunately not everything is perfect here, after playing Dandelion several times I'm still missing more elaborated guitar solos and at least one keys or bass solo. There are some pretty good guitar solos of course but they sound too restrained, not making justice to Ari's and Leo's capabilities.

However this is not the weakest part of the album, what I loved of ARMOP and don't like of Dandelion are the vocals. It is very noticeable that this time Longhi is singing till his limits and some notes just don't seemed to fit melodies. He is a great singer, probably the best in Costa Rica's scene but his braveness and risky singing betrayed him this time.

Favorite tracks: Indifferent and The Tale Of the Moon and the Sun. Have to point out the electronic elements, perfect soundscapes (Silent Waters) and Juan Pablo´s trademark playing. Something great about this band is how easy it is to identify their music. In general Dandelion is a pretty good album, quite different from ARMOP and this is something positive to highlight. Great Costa Rican band, great effort. Almost 4 stars
