4 stars If there's a band with the ability to capture the essence of many influences such as; progressive rock, heavy metal and even, flamenco music among others and to give a rich, amusing and authentic sound as final result, that band would have to be Conception. However, on this time they chose to work with more artificial elements and in that way they were changing the common acoustic and autochthonous musical resources from past albums.

Certainly, all that combination filled to the band from musical arguments in each record, and now they were able to elaborate a prodigious sound and very progressive "in the literal sense of the word". Fortunately, Conception has never been the kind of act that tries to prove their ability through the exaggerated virtuosity and they have always known to add the specific element on the right moment, and all of this is demonstrated once again on Flow.

Musically, Flow is homogeneous on its sound and sometimes when I listen the record I have the sensation to be hearing something new, like if the record had been on sale today (keeping in mind that it was recorded eleven years ago). 11 tracks (one more thanks to Japanese version, hehehe!), where you will find mid tempos, a power ballad and at the end, songs more oriented to the Conception's classic style.

For finishing there are two things; one, If you like the band and their style, just get it, and two, for the old stuff fans of the band, perhaps this is not going to be the best effort. Personally I like to hear a real progression on the sound of any prog band, maybe for that reason I have enjoyed a lot this one.
