4 stars They toured the US, and recorded this great concert!

Fortunately, the last year (2009) was an extraordinary year for this Mexican unique band, whose music was spread once again through the boundaries of the north frontier. They were invited to the NEAR Fest which as you know, is one of the most important festivals of progressive rock around the globe, so the bands who play there can feel sure that their music is appreciated by people of different countries and races, but with similar musical tastes.

It is not easy to please the progressive rock fan, but now with pride I can say that Cabezas de Cera did it, their tour over the United States, reunited some of the most positive criticism between the genre's connoisseurs, and I am sure that they felt it that way, because they returned to Mexico very happy after having achieved one more of their goals: leave a mark in the attendants.

In a wise decision, they decide to release a DVD/CD combo where one can appreciate their wonderful performance at NEAR Fest, besides other features. The introduction of this DVD was also chosen in a great moment: their 15th anniversary. Yes, the band have been composing and creating some of the most exquisite music I've ever heard for fifteen years, now I can say they have obtained loyal followers here in my country, but also recognition all over the world, they have earned it, believe me.

So what is this video about, as I said, it features the nine-track set off the North East Art Rock Festival which complete a 64-minute show, a concert where you can appreciate that they are as good (or better) as in the studio, that they play with all their heart, and that the crowd was happy with their performance, I really enjoy watching the people standing up and applauding, it feels good.

There are some classic songs such as "Gocxilla" and "Pretexto a un Texto Fragmentado", and also some of their newest compositions such as "Laberinto" and "Parkour", I believe they choose an excellent set list because those tracks gather all the elements that make this band big: experimentation, intelligent composing, great interplay between winds, strings and percussion, complex sound and several moods, among other things. Also, you can see that they (Paco, more specific) creates some of the instruments that Mauricio plays, whose particular sound could catch everyone's attention. In songs like "Indomable" or "Mutación" you can see those "weird" but original instruments.

Besides the concert, there are extra features that also make this DVD worth buying. One of them is a short documental about their US tour, where you can see their feelings and concerns before and after every concert. Another one is a short film with music of the band; and also a photo gallery. So here you can know them a little bit, outside their musical realm.

This is an excellent DVD that can work as a CD if you don't want to watch it. I would recommend it to all of you, if you are new to the band, this could be also a nice introduction; and if you already know them, please buy it, you won't regret. A couple of days ago I attend once again to a show, and they caused me goosebumps again, they still surprise me despite I think I know them very well, that is why I felt inspired in writing this review. My final grade is four stars.

Enjoy it!
