2 stars I have to admit that I share Dieter's views on this album.

It is a serious step behind their earlier releases. The band was surprising with their wonderful symphonic flamenco prog, combining these two dramatically different styles into an extraordinary mix . The first two albums were really excellent but on their third Sombra Y Luz, the flamenco elements were less explored and on this album it is even less the case.

There are some fine songs included on this album, but not a big deal to be honest: Aroma Fresco reminds me of their past grandeur. Some sweet ballads like Cae Fina La Lluvia or Un Nido En Mi Ventana are pleasant but closer to the pop than to the prog side.

The band shows also some fine and melancholic mood during the tranquil Un Encuentro Fugaz. It is another good moment from this short album; one of the proggiest song from this album (but there aren't many). Nice instrumental parts, conservative vocals during which De La Rosa doesn't add to much artifice and over effects.

If it weren't the closing number, Fin (end) would be a perfect press next song. Of a masterpiece, I can't find any trace. Two stars for this Encuentro. And the worse is yet to come, unfortunately.
