4 stars Rock neo symphonic progressive with a good dose of acoustic guitar and flute.

Neo progressive has been one of the most controversial movements within the genre. It was originated in the eighties fateful, fateful for symphonic rock. However, looking into the distance the early works of Marillion, IQ, Twelfth Night, Pendragon, among others, can not understand the resistance to it. Justified only musical prejudice, without giving attention to the product. Of course, a matter of taste. In addition, there were several projects that progressive ear disappointed by the low quality, but would not it also happened in the seventies?

Abel Ganz was one of those groups that did not get round good albums at the time. Too commercial, surrendering to the demands of the time, hard to dodge. Considering this, I was very pleasantly surprised this musical artistic jewel.

The four tracks are very good, well polished, with color and variety, So Far being a pure delight. Pastoral moments and more powerful. Electric guitars are tight and lively, the production is perfect. It conveys anguish, excitement, joy, hope, anxiety. The band sounds fully and well oiled. 4+ stars
