4 stars I have heard this album just four times , so as it is still new to me , I apply myself the rule of never giving the maximum rating to a discovery as to avoid over-enthusiasm/excitement. This is my third experience with Los Jaivas (after the folksy Juntas and the symphonic Alturas) , again here they manged a completely different sound and music then on those two albums . Steve Heged gives you an acurate description of the music also telling you that there are shorter "mariachi" numbers that have a tendency to annoy me (because I am prophane to that type of music) but those are greatly outnumbered by the longer and much proggier tracks.The opening minutes of the second number is simply stupendous and the crystal clear piano playing is breathtaking. No doubt , it will take many more listening of this album to grasp and understand the entire concept of this album, as they are doing something highly original.

Hats off , guys!!!!
