4 stars Fine and even quite rough fusion prog from Chile. Influences must include Mahavishnu Orchestra and King Crimson. The gutarist as well as the whiole band is stylistic and you can hear some owesome guitar and saxophone solos.The rhythm is at moments quite challenging but changes then suddendly into an airy atmosphere.

The melodies are somewhere between Chilean folk and VdGG darkness. The singin is imo the weakest point in the album. I don't like his hoarse voice and the shouting style. In the music itselfr there are great moments when rough sound of bass or guitar meet gentle sound of the flute and cymbals. The basist uses the stick, ofcourse.

The sound quality is excellent. They have not heard of dynamic compression in Chile luckily! The sounstage is great and even astonishing: some effects seem to come fron the rear loudspeakers though I don't have such! I would not hesitate to give this five stars if the singer was better. The musicians and the music would deserve it. Now they have to settle with four.
