4 stars "La Eternidad De Lo Efimero" is another great 80s Mexican prog album which features Ricardo Moreno from ICONOCLASTA. The music, as you might expect, is similar to ICONOCLASTA, but even more intense than DELIRIUM. The guitar and keyboard duels are jaw-dropping, and the band never slows down for too long. Fans of 70s progressive rock might be bothered by the digital keyboards, but the music certainly makes up for the coldness of the digital synths. The drums also have an 80s sound that might bother some listeners. I sometimes imagine that if this album had been done with Moog synths, and Hammond organ, it would have been considered a minor masterpiece. Unfortunately, the 80s style sounds rather odd today. Rumor has it that this entire album was recorded live in a TV studio (possibly for a TV show). If that's the case, the musicians are proven virtuosos and not just studio whizzes.
