4 stars Hey hey luchadores, here's my review Sergio Leone style:

THE GOOD: well, lots of stuff. The band is tight and has good hit-hat rythms, toms rolls and changing beats. The guitar parts are really good, the emphasis is on melody, and I recall lots of references to Camel (Mirage album). The keyboard is also very present, they sound like the old John Carpenter movies like Escape from New York 1977 or The Thing mixed with the soundtrack of the first Mega Man video game; so that's a good thing for nostalgia. The bass is loud, so it's easy to practice on it. The Adonis suite is surprisingly complex and not repetitive for a 24 minutes track. The vocal harmonies can recall Genesis at times, but they are very few. Overall, these guys are really good, and unfortunately fell into the cracks of anonymat with time like so many bands. A great album, to place amongst Camel's Mirage, Genesis' Trespass and Novalis' Sommerabend.

THE BAD: Well, not much but the songs like Sally are not my cup of tea but has a cute Harmonium twist. The german accent is terrible and sometimes the keyboard is too melodramatic; marshmallow overdose on track one, which can be long at times.

THE UGLY: Man, get a load of the cover!! Holy macaroni, this has to be the worst cover of all time. Basically, there's a guy buck naked lying on his back with a ghost besides him and a guitar. What the h....?!? And the worst part is that you can actually see the poor man's crouch with pubic hair. You heard me. I laughed so hard in the store, people gave me the eyes for a while. Good lord, that's more than I ever wanted to see on an LP.
