2 stars This has a great album cover. What the hell is that? The music here is Omar's attempt at electronica with mixed results. This is a 2010 release but could have came out in 2000 or earlier. Actually, I've heard very little electronic music from the past ten years that did anything that wasn't already being done by the late '90s. When rockers decide to do electronic music it can be hit or miss. Usually a miss which is the case here.

Ximena Sarinana Rivera does most of the vocals(mostly in Spanish). There is a few songs with some guy speaking in Spanish. It's not listed who does those spoken word parts. I've heard Omar do interviews in English, but I can't tell if it's him speaking. Anyway, the songs with the spoken word parts are the least interesting on the album. Omar's brother Marcel is credited with playing Mellotron but no 'Tron sounds really stand out.

"Polaridad" has a video for it. It's probably the best song here. It has a good beat and a nice synth solo near the end. The only other song that stands out is "Piedras Y Ansiedad", which has English lyrics. This song has a good bass synth sound. Good synth solo too. Ximena does her best singing on the album here. It sort of sounds like a Mellotron generated sound at the end.

Tychozorente is mostly synths, programmed beats and vocals. Not a bad album per se, but it's hardly 'prog'. At least it's nice to get a break from the freaky guitar and oddball manipulated vocals on some of his other albums. If you like modern dance/club music you might like this. Otherwise, don't bother. 2 stars.
