3 stars Let me first of all praise Rodrigo for bringing his music to our attention. This is an album which will give the vast majority of ProgArchives many users a lot of pleasure. So go & get it, guys.

Rodrigo San Martin has almost commited an artistic suicide on this album by creating a forty minutes long one piece of music & playing all instruments himself. This is extreme difficult to carry off, bordering to impossible. But Rodrigo has come very close to do just that. Frightening close.

The music is both very intelligently crafted and full of innovative playing. It is clear that Rodrigo has a vision and he is carrying it out here. The music is a mix of symph, neo, fusion and eclectic. It can be compared to both Genesis, Pink Floyd, Gentle Giant and Yes. Melodic prog in other words. Melodic and with a great, huge sound where a lot of details has been crammed in. The sound is contemporary and sounds like this decade. The sound is great, in fact. So is his vocals too and all instruments. The songs are also tinged with a lot of jazz. Oh yes, you guys will really enjoy this album.

The quality is very good throughout. Shockingly good, in fact. So why only 3.5 stars ? A couple of great tracks is missing and that's why. I am a very strict taskmaster, remember. But this should not scare you away from this album whose artwork is great too. I am looking forward to sink my teeth into his second album.

3.5 stars
