4 stars one of the best albums made by this tremendous band. this is one hell of a concept double album that will knock you out of you're socks (considering that you speak spanish and wearing socks) or just by their playing (don't expect to hear gentle giant-ish virtuosos, but still good playing). and a big plus for the beautiful melodies.

in this album you can find something for every taste in here or at least a song. the mixture of folk, metal and a wee bit of prog, and the balance of the 3 styles make it an easy listen if you are into more folk prog or a good ol' metal sound.

the concept of the album is about a man in the medieval ages who gets paid by a mysterious guy who wants him to company him show him the way. at the half of the story the man finds a good place to forget about everything and starts a new life. years later he went again on the road to finish the job. I won't spoil the end so you have to read it or translate it to figure it out.

there are a lot of great songs and no filer in this album but without a doubt the best song in the album is the 14 minute (epic?) song, and probably the best song they've ever made. Every lyric in the album is well written and very philosophical, don't expect gibberish in the songwriting.

this is truly an excellent album made by MAGO DE OZ. in my opinion they're second best album they have made after Gaia. if you're into metal, prog folk, or just trying to find something different from the pack, then give them a much needed listen.

prog on. from Puerto Rico.
