5 stars They have such a good taste, psychedelic, stoner and progressive influences in this desertic band from Argentina. Their second work is for me a real masterpiece, and I say it loud and clear. Atmospheres beatifully crafted and performed, music flowing with its ups and downs so sweetly, so harshly, that you are quickly inmersed in an unearthly and dreamy landscape far away from routine and typical sensations.

This instrumental pieces are deeply rooted in the past, but sounds fresh and true maybe because it was live recorded in a few days in a such a warm way.Everything here is narcotic, sometimes in a magical crystalline ambient, and often when the guitars and the pounding drums become fiery and rock hard breaking the rhythms and measures. Musicianship is quite good, but songwriting is flawless and wonderful. Even theremin and some keyboards here and there are used with good taste.

I never get bored of this record, so traditional and up to date at the same time, full of twists and turns and symbolic passages but straight and punchy. My favourite pieces are La Distancia, Sueño Narcotico, Tiempo y Espacio, Campo Magnetico y the brutal Las Magnitudes, that closes the album in a magnificient way. The booklet is also great and contains a short story also called La Distancia written by the bassist Martin Rodriguez, that seems like the script for the music in the disc,
