3 stars Not necessarily much worse than the debut album, this one has less memorable songs, is also a bit more derivative of other bands in the prog-space but has the same instrumental quality. "Viva mi sevilla" keeps vocals to the minimum and displays strong keyboard, guitar and rhythmic skills by the band. After that, the flamenco influence is diminished until the final suite arrives, while progressive and folk elements remain. Anyway, I can't help myself thinking that Jethro Tull was listened to by the band members. The long suite at 23 minutes is a bit of a letdown due to low compositional and not exactly the depth that a progressive rock suite would be expected to bring. On a positive note, there are female vocals and a good melody.
