4 stars From my personal point of view, this album exceeds by far that acclaimed debut album, Frances the Mute, is much more accomplished... landed... this is an album that consolidates their sound and even have the (luxury) to makes "experiments", and not fall into the easyness or the pretension. Continuing on the same line, although he added details that make the difference... the fusion of latin sounds, coupled with hard rock, melodic passages and psychedelia TMV make a band to consider. Also the lyrics are so surreal and dreamlike that one can easily lose in this feast of sparks and colors. A great album is here!
