3 stars Elfonia from Mexico was a short living band with only two albums released and then gone into oblivion, almost. I said almost because this band was discovered by many listners through Stream of Passion band that Marcela Bovio formed after Elfonia was disbanded in 2005, and through Ayreon band where she apper on Human equation. Elfonia plays an intreguing type of prog with folk influences and aswell some prog metal elements added in the mix, the result is pretty much ok, but fail to impress me big time. Some bombastic parts melted with some more key orientated parts makes from this sonic lanscape a good ride, but tnothing is outstanding to my ears. Marcela Bovio vocal abilities are quite strong, she can sing soft and with smooth parts and aswell she can be very powerful with great range. Pieces like Maquina or Chameleon show that Elfonia deliver good solid musicianship with great ideas, somehow not to be found on the rest of the tunes, who are ok but to flat and derivate. All in all, a fairly decent farewell album, not great but ok most of the time. 3 stars
