5 stars Beautiful from first to last note!! Totally symphonic, maybe is one of the best prog albums that I ever heard. Based on Bradbury's "Martian Chronicles" the truth is the first 3 songs of the album are based directly on this book but who cares!

The album is almost totally instrumental but with great work on chorus on "The Martian Chronicles II-III". As I said the firts 3 songs are just one piece dedicated to Bradbury's book and looks like a little but powerful symphony. "Mar's Poetica" (track 4) is an excellent and very prog compositon with hard aarngements for keyboards. After this, you can enjoy songs like "Apokalipse", "Undefeteable", "Solaris" and the magical "The Planet of Orchids". If you really like prog this albums offers brilliant and heavenly moments supported mostly by flute (some Jethro/Camel sound), guitars and keyboards and a constant "in crescendo" sensation that makes you think than the next song is better than the last one you hear.
