5 stars Im not tired to suggest this band, im not tired to talk about them, because they are great, maybe from my country you know Cast and Iconoclasta, i think both are the most well - known mexican bands , because they are older, and of course they are great too.

This is the debut album from Cabezas de Cera, this great mexican band, ( im proud of them), and is my favorite band from here. They have a unique sound, something different if we compare them to others, they make a differen progressive rock mixing not only guitars bass and drums, but flute, stick, saxophone, and electronic sets. I Have always said that its very difficult to place them in one subgenre, here in the archives they are in Art Rock section, it could be,but its difficult because they have an innovative mix of sounds and influences, in this album we can listen to some folkish and ethnic passages, great guitar and stick work reminiscent to Tony Levin, and in general to King Crimson, and also with jazz and trumpet a jazzy influenced sound.

Pay attention to their structures , they are great, Encantador de Serpientes Gitana and Gocxilla are my favorite songs here . Im really pleased with this band i like some of my fellow proggres, but this is a new band, with something fresh, complex songs , new ideas and i think it is so enjoyable, but i have to tell that mthis is not everybody`s cup of tea, i love them, and i really love this album, it is highly recommended because i`d like you to give them a chance, only a few of you already know them, and thats unjust, so give them a chance, then im sure you will enjoy them, for all that reasons im going to give it 5 stars, for me it is a masterpiec of progressive rock.
