4 stars It's very Avant-garde kind of Eclectic Prog. Very experimental and not so pleasant, not allowing listener to get into it so easily (and from it, by the way). It seems that I didn't like it at first listen (I've listened this about a year ago) and put this record in the "certainly not like" section. Well, either my preferences had changed, or I just had to "give it" a time. Sad thing is that there's electronic drumkit, but it's not so noticeable. Mostly instrumental, but when vocals are around, they're rather pleasant kind of Spanish language. It's more like RIO/ Avant (still don't know which is which) than "your normal kind" of Eclectic, but that doesn't matter much.

Let me tell you a story about a boy. This boy was happy in his world. He was used to listen commercial music full of well known, recycled (over and over again) sound patterns, elements and was soaked in genres like pop. It was his worshiping object. Because he was scared to go out and explore Cabezas De Cera (for example). But one day, he tried it and was completely stunned by what he has heard. First he hated it, considered it absolutely ugly and ear-ripping sound, so unknown for him, so different than what he was used to listen. But fortunately, he tried it again and realized what he missed on first listen.

Now, this boy isn't me, this story also isn't about me, it's completely imagined, with one exception that I also didn't like it at first listen and then saw it's advantages. Anyway, do you like my story ? You shouldn't, it's nonsense. Anyway, let's continue.

As soon as I realized that there's electronic drummer, listening it became pain of some kind. It's like someone stabbing me with a knife. To open wounds. Maybe I'm too much of a traditionalist, but lack of person behind drums & percussions is quite big for me. But I can comply and get on well with it (I hope). I did in past though.

There are some more difficult and then more melodic like tracks, so you won't have it so bad. You can choose after all.

4(-), because I'm ashamed a little bit that I almost cursed such a great release.
