Prog Reviewer
4 stars For the third release, ICONOCLASTA went and released an EP as a 7" disc. The disc has a small hole, like what's used for LPs, so you won't need any 45 adapter for your turntable to enjoy this. Also it plays at 33, rather than 45, meaning you get around 15 minutes of music total on this disc. Anyway, the music is a continuation of their previous two albums, maybe a little more '80s sounding than previous, but still unmistakably ICONOCLASTA, with the duo guitars of Ricardo Moreno and Ricardo Ortegon, the combination digital/analog keyboard setup of Rosa Moreno, the bass of Nohemi D'Rubin, and the drums of Victor Baldovinos.

The album starts off acoustic, deceptively sounding like traditional Mexican music (not mariachi), but after a couple minutes, the actual music kicks in, letting everyone know that this is ICONOCLASTA, one of Mexico's top prog bands. Without a doubt, the first half of the disc is the best, as the second half tends to drag on a bit (as often is the case of their music). Also this was included on the CD reissue by California-based prog label Art Sublime of their following release, "Soliloquio", so if you long gave up on LPs, then you can get this on CD.
