4 stars (Nothing psychedelic here at all), but rather extremely melodic 70s vintage type Prog Rock of Sudoamerican dreams. First side of this album is top notch, best class, highest quality. The second one is good, but not so appealing. However also not appalling.

There is strong scent of happy atmosphere, pouring from each second of this record, happy atmosphere, band having fun making this album and so on. Why not, this only helps.

Be it first seconds of Pájaro De La Locura where this great sounding keyboard stars the show (I wish I remember the name of this instrument), multi-vocal harmonies that are present in various tracks, original melodies (interesting ones), beautiful second part of Canto Centrino.

It's hard to be so melodic and not being pathetic / cheesy (call it as you wish), but guys from Aquelarre manages to stay at the top with this album.

5(-), one of the best ones. Because it's hard to be so beautiful.

Marty McFly | 4/5 |
