2 stars The second & final offering from this Argentine band.

I was not overjoyed about their first album. Tercer Milenio continues in the same formula. Hard space rock with some attempts of breaking into the commercial market. Rush was a big name at that time (still is !!!!) and Orion's Beethoven also tries to copy their formula on a couple of tracks without sounding any convincing. The band also sounds like Deep Purple at a couple of tracks too.

This album is more diverse than their debut album and an improvement. The vocals are great and so is the Hammond organ. The latter one (a sure trick to please me) is used too sparingly. The sound is not that great either.

In short, this is a decent to good album. I am afraid it is an album only for the collectors and those into this sound. There is no real good songs on this album, although it has some good melody lines. This is not for me, I am afraid.

2.5 stars
