Prog Reviewer
3 stars This album has been ranked in the Neo-Prog genre but itt is balanced between neo and symph actually.

The great instrumental opener is as far as I am concerned the best track from this album. Probably the most and enjoyable symphonic part from the whole.

The album is pure instrumental and I have to admit that after a few tracks, the whole sounds a bit? boring. It is too much repetitive and without true melody. Most tracks are displayed without any atmosphere (''Encuentros'' or ''Imakinación'').

Another of my fave is the melodic and gorgeous ''Triste Euforia''. Indeed very much sad but so beautifull and passionate. Such a great guitar solo in the second half is so beautiful?The keys taking on and displaying a splendid finale . Splendid track by all means. The second and last highlight.

But frankly, there won't be so many great songs on this album. ''Sueno En La Noche De Los Tiempos'' being one of the weakest and introducing the long title track split into three sections (over 24 minutes). I have to say that none of these three parts left some great souvenir in my brain.

Three stars for the whole. And I am VERY generous.
