3 stars again 3.5 stars

Second offer by this excellent mexican band named Govea, issued last year 2011 named Raices meaning Roots. From the superb cover art , again, to the music Govea keeping the flag high in symphonic prog with this time I think a more jazzier aproach in places then on first album. The music is almost on same coordonates as on Danza urbana, but this time Salvador Govea infuses some more jazzy parts, combined with eclectic side of symphinic prog the result is a pretty intresting one. Lots of keyboard layers, diversity is at home here, even some pulsating bass lines and quite complex specially on Neocórtex, very jazzy in aproch, great in the end. Every piece is a winner to my ears, but I don't think overall is a groundbreaking release, ok is very well done and performed , is even original in some parts, but only 3.5 stars again for Raices. A truly inventive band in today prog rock scene, that desearves a far better recognition world wide, both albums worth to be investigated for sure by any serious listner.
