3 stars The second part of Omar Rodriguez Lopez 2012 electronic music trilogy starts off being much more promising that the first album, 'Un Corazon de Nadie'. Indeed, it feels much more entertaining than both 'Un Corazon de Nadie' and 'Octopus Kool Aid', but it's still a very strange minialist recording.

Some interesting (yet strange and simple) keyboard work (alongside with nice little shifts and changes) is found on 'Gentle Umbrellas'. 'Spllbound' has a very dancey drums, it's rather a dance music track than any of experimental rock, whilst 'Fear Eats The Soul' and 'Decided?' start like acoustic ballads with lots of electronic distortion. 'Angel Hair' is another ballad song here, and it sounds like it was recorded on a bad dictophone, then more electronic treatments are coming.

Despite of being definitely not the best album from Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, it still has a bunch of worthy stuff that makes it one of his more interesting releases of past few years.

2 stars An electronic album from Omar Rodriguez-Lopez of THE MARS VOLTA. As with most of his solo albums, this bears little resemblance to that bands body of work. Nothing too groundbreaking is offered here. It starts interesting enough with "Home Lost" but quickly turns uninteresting to my musical taste. I have listeded to this a few times and have yet to make it all the way through in one sitting. I lsten to half and then at another time the other half. The final album cut, "Angel Hair" is also not bad but not enough to save the whole thing. 2 stars only
