4 stars When I bought this recently I noticed this band is from Argentina. So I immediately associated them with their great fellow countrymen Nexus. I consider them as a great name in progland so I thought, well then Amagrama will be their little brother. I don't know how Amagrama will feel about that qualification and I certainly don't want to sound degrading so let's say it's just my twisted mind thinking like that.

When I played it and played it some more times for a right and true judgement my respect for Amagrama increased more and more. This is really excellent stuff. I'm particularly impressed by their instrumental tracks like the title track and a few at the end of the album. Really amazingly good. But it has also to do with their debatable vocals. To me it's the Achilles heel of this band. It's not even a matter of poor vocals because in the song Desierto Humedo the vocals are actually quite good but in Tu Eternidad it's hurting my ears slightly.

But overall I think we are talking about a (near) sensation here. This is one of those bands I hope to find in my ever continuing quest for new great progbands. So I'd say: keep up the good work Amagrama and play us some more. A well deserved 4 stars and even a bit better (4,25).
