2 stars This is the fifth album from this Spanish instrumental trio, and appears to be a catching up of pieces that have been recorded over the years as the notes for each song show that they are from a long period of time. According to the press release the band play "a powerful instrumental progressive rock influences by King Crimson, Van Der Graaf Generator, Peter Hammill and even Magma". But, what it doesn't say is that these are improvised pieces that have as much in common with free form jazz as it does with the above.

This is music that is striving to break down limits of what is aurally acceptable and while there is no doubt that the guys can play there is the question at times of whether they are playing in the same key, let alone the same tune. I think that the only way to fully appreciate this music is by watching them play, or to see another art form in conjunction with it, but on its own at home in a stereo it doesn't work at all.
