Review by The Prognaut
4 stars ICONOCLASTA's "En Busca de Sentido" represents quite original and complex instrumental music and all seven tracks on the album have been composed, arranged and performed within the frame of a united, monolithic stylistics, which at the same time is not unusual for the Classic Art Rock genre. While all compositions featuring "En Busca de Sentido" stylistically and structurally are of a real monolithic character, each of them contains about a dozen of different themes and arrangements within itself. Musically, all these seven lengthy pieces are also quite similar one to another too, which at least in this exact case doesn't mean it's a drawback. Quite the opposite, the album is so rich in complex arrangements that it demands at least a few repeated listens to comprehend. While "En Busca de Sentido" is rich in themes, arrangements and other essential progressive ingredients, tempos don't change too often here, as these hot Mexican guys use their instruments mostly like hot Mexican horses, especially since they're strong musical jockeys and the musicianship of each member of ICONOCLASTA is as high as their joint performance. So there is a lot of bombastic arrangements on the album, and most of the others go up- tempo too. Each of the seven compositions presents the ICONOCLASTA musicians as masters of soloing parts and fast keyboard, guitar and bass solos or interplays between keyboards and two electric guitars drive to the accompaniment of quite diverse drumming along with cascades of excellent drum solos, though, of course, keyboards and electric guitars play prominent roles in creating the principal musical palettes on the album.

2 stars I agree with most of Alberto's review, but what he founds positive does not appeal to me.The tracks are quiet the same and there are definetely lots of good ideas but after one or two promising introes I got really bored by the developments, mainly on sologuitar sounding like Alan Holdsworth.The tracks are to long and I don't feel the inner tension of the tracks. In this case i find the metronomique rhythm a little bit to boring. I don't like the productio either it's very flat and is missing space and gives the overall impression of a room to small for thr arrangements.

4 stars Superb instrumental progressive music. Iconoclasta are classified as jazz/rock fusion artists, but there strong symphonic themes and arrangements to their music. The band features two guitarists often used playing tight harmonies throughout the tightly arranged sections of the music in a manner ... (read more)
