5 stars Man I was not expecting this debut from these Spaniards to be this good. I was reminded of MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA alot, although there is no violin. Lots of electric piano and the drummer is simply killer on this disc. Throw in sax, trumpet, guitar and chunky bass and mix it into a Jazz / Fusion style and that's what we get.

"Fesomies Urbanes" opens with cymbals, horns and atmosphere before it kicks in with some impressive and intricate drum work. Electric piano and horns sound amazing. "Lila" is a mellow piece with acoustic guitar and smooth horns. "Capitan Truend" has such an incredible sounding rhyhm section as horns, electric piano and guitar help out. This is just a pleasure. Love the guitar. Lalila" is just over a minute of acoustic guitar as horns come in late.

"Euphoria" sounds so good. Chunky bass, drums, electric piano and horns are all so impressive. It settles with guitar 1 1/2 minutes in.The drumming is once again amazing. "L'harmoniosa Simfonia D'un Cos. Part 1" is atmospheric with horns and electric piano slowly playing. "L'harmoniosa Simfonia D'un Cos. Part 2" has this beat with guitar, horns and electric piano. Gorgeous. "El "Bailaor" Cosmic" features piano early then it picks up 1 1/2 minutes in. Nice bass and drum work as piano continues. The guitar starts to light it up. "Tema Dels Carrers Radioactius" opens with drums as guitar,electric piano and horns join in. Some fire here. It ends with the sound of a large truck going by.

I just can't give this less than 5 stars.The atmosphere and lights out instrumental work has left me stunned. This is right up there with fellow Spaniards ICEBERG's best but better.
