4 stars Strong follow up album by this band from the Dominican Republic. And one striding across quite a few stylistic boundaries to boot.

The main ingredients throughout are fusion and psychedelic rock though, with rhythms taking on jazz-tinged as well as Latin-American touches while the guitars to some extent also underscores the fusion leanings. The six-strings tends to settle on the more psychedelic parts of this band's expression though, with lazy, echoing guitar licks as a pretty common denominator throughput. Add in some heavier art rock passages and one instance of punk meeting psychedelia, and compositions mostly on the quirky side in construction, and the end result is a pretty eclectic take on the progressive rock genre. And one of a rather high quality as well.

Spanish vocals with a slightly melodramatic delivery will probably be the main restraining element for this band, but those who isn't negatively affected by this aspect of El Trio's performance should find this album to be pretty intriguing. As long as the blend of fusion and psychedelia comes across as interesting obviously.
