1 stars At first the idea of a new Ahleuchatistas album made me overflow with anticipation. The cover art and the title were different than what this amazing, crazy, noisy yet enjoyable don caballero on crack band had previously released, but I thought nothing of it. Turns out it was a dark omen of a change I would not appreciate. As I played the first song, I thought to myself "Oh well a crappy intro consisting of nothing but noise... I'm sure the rest of the album will be amazing" but I was wrong. Gone is the insane musicianship, gone are the quirky time and style changes, gone are the tension and release of alternating noisy and catchy part. This album is pure noise. And I'm not talking semi-intersting "a bunch of musicians improvising" noise, this is just noise. The production is crap, everything is overly distorted, it doesnt even sound like this is a band. This is more noisy electronics that might have been created at the very basis by actual instruments than anything remotely resembling rio/avant-prog. A complete let down, all in all the album has about 5 minutes of actual music spread across the various tracks of noise, and even when it does resemble music it doesnt resemble ahleuchatistas, its just repetitive crap. seems like the band wanted to be weird rather than being enjoyable. I can't imagine anyone actually getting into this album, and this is coming from a huge fan of their previous albums. I'd give this 0 stars if I could
