4 stars Admirable heir of the RiO/AV founders. Must be heard to believe!

Some reviewer points out, wisely, that whenever you see this musician's name on an album, do not hesitate to aquire it. Well I did and glad to have done so. Here is my review.

In the true manner of this Prog sub-genre's greatest talents, this mexican multi-instrumentalist, composer, is brave and daring enough, to add up his own musical "discoveries" to this quiet chaotic and extense "musical planet".

For starters his language has a wide scope of "moods" and directions. From symphonic to heavy/prog to electronic to folk and other routes. Not everything is as the art cover suggests, a dark grieving matter. Next and best, there is no close connection to any kind of mexican transvestite "folkloric" music, apart from its some songs being sung in spanish by vocalist Margarita Botello. Let's say this music has no exact physical geography, besides its inherent place among "universal" great music.

It is epic, it is poingnant, it is restless, it is eclectic and sometimes, if required, it is sweet and soft.

It is enticing. It holds no unecessary "paraphernalia". This music is extremely well balanced and intelligent, yet unpretentious, but still excitingly daring. It reminds me of a lot of bands, but never to the point of surrendering its own musical idiom, which is quiet a thrill and an unexpected surprise.

Therefore, whenever you are "lucky" enough to see JOSE LUIS FERNANDEZ LEDESMA's *"Dicen Que Somos Dioses y Nos Sonamos Hombres", get it asap, you would not regret it at all! *"They say we are Gods and dream ourselves Men."

****4 + my review, PA stars.
