Prog Reviewer
4 stars This is pretty much a reunion of all the original members (except for Rosa Moreno). Because of the lack of Rosa Moreno, the album tends to be more guitar-oriented, and it's too bad that the keyboards used here (by Ricardo Moreno) sound quite ugly and plastic- sounding. Also a bad move is bassist Nohemi D'Rubin decided she should sing on half the songs. Unfortunately, Mexican Spanish doesn't always seem to go over too well in a prog setting, as she sings in that stereotypical Mexican style that might work much better in Latin music. But aside from the singing and awful synthesizers, this has got to be one of their best albums ever. They really know how to rock here, and it's really the guitars (from both Ricardo Moreno and Ricardo Ortegon) that really count. The band plays tighter than they had before (early albums showed their performance could often be sloppy). Of course the biggest problem, is while their first few albums had been reissued here in America (on the Art Sublime label) and in France (on Musea), their more recent material was only released in Mexico, which seems to be overlooked by many dealers that carry imports. But if you like ICONOCLASTA, and get over the singing and cheesy synths, you're certain to enjoy "De Todos Uno".
