Review by Mellotron Storm
3 stars 3.5 stars. These guys are a 3 piece instrumental band from Spain.This particular record has many guest musicians who helped this trio in the playing of the music, that was all recorded live in studio. If you can get through the first two songs your away to the races. Not that the songs are bad, they're just very experimental, lots of weird noises, no melody at all. My question was why ? Haha.

Anyway the next song "Trajecto III" is a good melodic tune, with the focus on the drums, although the guitar crashes into the soundscape. "Malva Bruma " features good guitar throughout, no breakouts though. "Simetricacustica" features great interplay between the two guitarists. "Trajecto V" is psychedelic sounding much like the SPACIOUS MIND. A favourite of mine is "Ruptura part I", it's the guitarist doing one long solo. Great !

"Ruptura part II" is a slower paced guitar melody, good tune. "Requiem" features sax for the first time on the record, along with guitar and drums. The middle of the song is a very un-melodic jam. More sax in the next song, while the final tune "Desesperado I Sin Salides Falsas" is maybe the best song on the record, sounding very much like "Red" era KING CRIMSON.

If not for the first two songs i'd give this a four star rating. A good record anyway.

Review by kev rowland
2 stars This is the fifth album from this Spanish instrumental trio, and appears to be a catching up of pieces that have been recorded over the years as the notes for each song show that they are from a long period of time. According to the press release the band play "a powerful instrumental progressive rock influences by King Crimson, Van Der Graaf Generator, Peter Hammill and even Magma". But, what it doesn't say is that these are improvised pieces that have as much in common with free form jazz as it does with the above.

This is music that is striving to break down limits of what is aurally acceptable and while there is no doubt that the guys can play there is the question at times of whether they are playing in the same key, let alone the same tune. I think that the only way to fully appreciate this music is by watching them play, or to see another art form in conjunction with it, but on its own at home in a stereo it doesn't work at all.
