4 stars The debut album by this instrumental Mexican trio is one of the best albums I have heard from this country. All the instruments, but especially the guitar and percussions, are used successfully. The overall sound is often experimental because the music is a blend of different influences (jazz, electronics, KC etc.). There is some strong Mexican touch as well and it merges very nicely with the other influences. The classical instruments that the band uses are flauta, saxophone and clarinet. Ramses Luna plays all these instruments splendidly. There is also some violin and trumpet by guest musicians. The guitarist Mauricio Sotelo definitely has some Fripp influence in his playing but it doesn't disturb in any way (unless you have a problem with it of course). This is music that should please fans of an innovative blend of different influences.

This is a very good album throughout. The best tracks are perhaps "Veintiuno", "Un Pueblo Escondido" (my favourite) and "Pretexto a un Texto Fragmentado". The last track "Al Aire" includes voice but it is just narrative.

Conclusion: Excellent album!
