4 stars If you are interested in prog that sounds of Spain, this is definitely for you. These guys take directly from the classic Spanish tradition. So much so, that I imagine them having a flamenco dancer with them at all times. Now, it is not all traditional, they do rock it up, and even incorporate some jazz elements. But that rhythm is hardly ever missing. Only on the last number do they just go for straight "rock-style" prog.

CAL's musicianship is top notch, and the composition is very solid. They don't get too crazy, but there is some experimentation. Don't look for exceeding complexity either. The beauty of this is prog meeting Spanish traditional. It will also keep your foot tapping. The music is very engaging. I would call this a 3.5 star album, but I will be generous and round it up to four. It's not earth shattering, but it is extremely enjoyable. The fact that it is such a rarity will also add prestige to your collection.
