3 stars It is incredible difficult to find albums from this band from Mexico. Which is a pity because what I have heard so far has been rather good. I loved their Orginallis album

I have been advised that Cast has chopped around their style quite a lot. Although they have always stayed close or within the Symphonic Prog genre. This album though is a bit of a detour and I would argue; a detour into Neo Prog. The sound is pretty much in the vein of IQ and Pendragon. The vocals is Pendragon out and out. There are also some strong Genesis elements (not surprising !) in their sound and some faint Flower Kings and ELP elements. If you love Pendragon and IQ; this album should be purchased (if you can find it) just because of the lush sound.

The quality of this album is not that impressive though. The problem is that the songs are simply not good enough. There are three really good songs on this album though. The Genesis dominated Spirit of Man and the title track. Those two songs are really epic and takes us through various landscapes. The final song Nostrabamos is like ELP goes Neo- Prog on a boat in France. Those three songs are great. The rest of this album is OK.

It is a pity that this album is so difficult to get hold of because it is rather good. I really like this band.
