4 stars Already the third album by this band from Asturias and to my ears their best to date! The minimalistic or abstract touches have been considerably reduced, making place for stronger compositions; eclectism is still a key word when analyzing this band, be it their mix of music styles or the instrumentation chosen; about the first, there is with no doubt a great Latin feel, that here also encompasses the hit "Paraná", written by Hugo Fattoruso and featured on the '73 album "Fingers" by Airto Moreira; but bossa nova bass rhythms (on track 3) and the very Spanish feel (mixed with salsa) of the last and 13 minutes long track are also reinforcing this Latin identity; while "Gameland" opens up your fantasy towards a fictive emulation of Indonesian gamelan rhythm structures; as to the eclectism of the instrumentation, be my guest: gorgeous Minimoog outbursts, lots of various percussion, electronic pads, e-bow, bassoon, accordion, baritone sax, kaval, flute, violin, organ and several keyboards, el guitars. Let me also draw your attention on the short track "Tales from Buanga", where a superb bass playing is heard nearly solo, packed in a myriad of percussive sounds and bird calls before folding out with whole band towards the end, a much effective trick! All in all, this album is filled of a sheer energy and contagious enthusiasm. Really recommended!
