4 stars Well this is the first Omar album I have heard and I can truly say it's really good. Great guitar work, bass and drums (nice to hear Thomas Pridgen again working with Juan Alderete) giving a real groove - but actually the keyboard/electric piano work is truly inspiring also. Starting with a lengthy jazzy instrumental with a bizarre title - Omar really excels himself here. Then it gets really special - with each track better than the last with the beautiful vocal of Ximena Sariņana - oh how I wish she sang on more of Omar's albums!! Each track feels different from the rest with many different paces and moods. Locomocian Capillar rocks out the most, with a fascinating rhythm - and unlike some others I feel the vocal fits really well because it is so unusual. Las Flores is a fascinating piece with atmosphere, heaviness and eclecticness. Last but not least is the awesome Victimas Del Cielo - hightened by Ximena's amazing vocal here - her best performance of the lot with a great Omar solo to boot.

Apparently this was recorded live for the BBC - giving a certain rawness at times.

Highly recommended, just short of a masterpiece (only because it's a little too short) and it's not 100% perfect.

4 1/2 stars! Unfortunately have to round that down to 4....
