4 stars A gentle affair by this Argentinian band, and as the album title implies melancholic moods are explored extensively on this venture.

Slow to mid-paced compositions with piano or acoustic guitar providing the dominant themes and motifs is what's offered, with a gentle symphonic backdrop as an almost ever present feature. A few instances of guitar riffs used to provide darker textures will be found, while what sounds like an accordion is used often and to great effect to add some variation to the proceedings. A select few jazzy passages are added to good effect as well.

Residing somewhere in the twilight zone between gentle adult oriented rock and the lighter side of the art rock universe, this disc should be a pleasant experience for those looking for mellow art rock crafted with an emphasis on distinct moods and strong but pleasant melodies.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
