4 stars This is really a quite singular work, because, although t in "Mexican Suite" are present all of the elements rhythmic, melodic and instrumental characteristic of the sonority of the Mexican band ICONOCLASTA, as well as the virtuosity of their arrangements and individual executions. This EP sound as a type of "homage" to the traditional Mexican music. The track 1 "Mestizaje' it begins with a classical guitar solo that reminds the music "La Paloma", that in spite of it being composed by a Spanish musician (Sebastian Yradier) after he visited Cuba in 1861, became a quite popular musical theme in Mexico and later in the rest of the world , the music soon after, changes in a "festival theme' initiate for an percussion arrangement accompanied of "whistles", as that summoning the crowd for some event just as a parade or a fair in a central square of some Mexican village, actually in some moments you get to hear "Mariachi" playing their "Guitarróns and Vihuelas!" The track 2 is enough similar to the track 1 in his central theme, however with a midlle section where come vigorous electric guitar solos with "acid" synthesizers that takes the remaining of the music to something much closer of the symnphonic prog, returning to the initial theme. My rate is 4 stars!!!
