4 stars This album is different (from Siesta, their last one), not being melodic too much, depending on other elements that makes us shiny happy Prog people. So if you expect melody, go look elsewhere, "Brumas" is about more serious type of Prog.

Providing changes in form of odd time signatures, sudden quiet parts, rapid changes of leading instruments, simply Prog as most of you know it. Still pleasant to listen though, even not as enjoyable at the first sight as what will follow. Indeed, it's not usual to go from last album to first, but it can provide interesting results sometimes.

There are also parts that sounds like Rock (wild guitar solos like on some Led Zeppelin record - last part of Milagro Del Pueblo).

4(-), even not exactly my kind of Prog, its qualities are clear I think.

5 stars It's really hard to justify a "masterpiece" ranking for this album if you weren't to take in account, along with the music, the unique lyrics as well. The instrumental playing and also the vocal style are not that outstanding, to be honest. But they are absolutely personal, and belong to each other with the melodies and, last but not least, the hallucinating imagery depicted in the lyrics. Take for (not the only) example the track 4 "Brumas en la bruma", with a picture-in-words that sets the listener right into a surreal experience of nature, involving a re-invention of the language that I must call nothing short as "impresionist". Add the exquisite orchestral arrangement to that, and you will get the idea that crosses the entire album: perfect union of poetry and sounds
