5 stars The new Mago is better than older, with this album the band gives a new spin in their sound and their lyrics, this album tells a history about the Conquest of Mexico, also with this new sound adding more flutes and violin passages the barroque and medieval music is remarkable there are less guitars sounds on this album, the bass has amazing lines, the voice is powerful and very emotive, Also the Keyboards of Sergio takes a main role in this album for example playing amazing riffs in Mellotron (Van a Rodar Cabezas) so the album has a perfect harmony! BTW the melodies here are beautiful every song contains great melodies!

Every song is like a little history (since the album is conceptual it contains amazing lyrics). Apart of the history of the conquest of Mexico there are another history about Gaia (Goddess of Earth in greek mythology), the music is so catchy and powerful IMO this album is the best of them although I like every album of Mago ( Personally this one is my favorite).I love it!

The progressives structures are most notables in this album (Gaia and La Venganza de Gaia) now their overtures are more epics, this album is perfect to me every song is very important here, no filler, no waste time, everything fits here! if you dont like Mago but you like medieval sounds and barroque passages this album is for you of course with a touch of Folk/Metal. So 5 starts to this great record Recommended!
