Prog Reviewer
4 stars This album is a masterpiece, really. Frantic, explosive, so energetic, but never chaotic without reason. The music here obviously comes from the heart, and I believe this is the main reason why this album is so beloved. It is not only a fantastic example of Latin rock, it is also an exercise in pure emotion - here one can hear the very essence of the term 'jamming'. Tracks like 'Waiting', 'Savor' , 'Jingo', 'Treat', and 'Soul Sacrifice' all showcase the desire of the band members to experiment, something which is well preserved although they were 'made' to add a few more conventional songs, in order to have a chance on the market. Even these compositions are great - a purely enjoyable album from start to finish with no weak spots!
