4 stars A very raw, dark and stretch record. It's an excelent mix of minimalism, hard rock and the unique sound of RIO. It could serve as an introduction to this genre before gettin' to bands such as Magma, Henry Cow and Univers Zero. The album shows us that it's possible to obtain great quality music with few elements (some of the tracks are just bass and drums with the ocasional addition of keyboards and guitar) and althought it could seem a low budget production, it stills keep the interest.

This band cares not for commercial success, they play for themselves you can tell that. But that it's what i appreciate more in a band, when they play music that pleases them i can get more easely into their world. The same thing King Crimson does, as long as they feel they can make a contribution they'll continue doin' it.

Rating: 4/5
