3 stars "Wow, a prog band from Cuba! This I gotta hear." Was what went through my mind when I read about the new release "the Way'of Anima Mundi. Also encouraged by some very positive ratings here on PA I decided to download the album from Mindawn.

After listening to the album a couple of times I am rather disappointed. Sure its pretty good stuff; The playing is more then competent, The tunes are good, the singer has a nice voice and the production is clear. But there's nothing 'Cuban' about the music of Anima Mundi. This is pretty standard symphonic prog in the vein of Yes, Glass Hammer and Neil Morse. Nothing I've not heared plenty of times before. I really hoped to find something with a little more edge and identity.

But still, symphonic prog lovers will find plenty to enjoy. Other prog fans should approach this with a little more caution. "Good, but not essential" seems like the right qualification.

3 stars.
