4 stars One of the finer things about this site is that one can learn about progressive bands that you would never have heard of otherwise. Espiritu, for me is one of those bands. This compilation is one of two that can be downloaded for free from the band's web site, and I thank them for that.

The opening notes of the first track give the impression that this band is going to be yet another Genesis imitation. But it doesn't take long before that impression is blown away with complex guitar, keyboard and drums. In fact, the best comparison I can make is to the vintage years of PFM. Yes, this is some highly technical, and well played symphonic prog.

My only complaint is that all too often the keyboards are way too low in the mix. It's not much of a complaint. 4 stars.
