4 stars Alejandro Matos' recording style has become much more polished since the release of his previous album, "Persona". The songs are all slick and well composed. Even his singing voice, which was somewhat warbling in the previous album, is now much more steady, and easier to listen to.

His music varies from symphonic prog, to heavy, almost metal sounding prog, to strong arena rock with prog leanings. He plays all of the instruments here, except for a guest violinist, and excels on just about every one. I especially enjoy his bass lines, and low-register synth work. I would, however, suggest that he add some variation to his drum progamming. The plain beats he often sets up sometimes are too drab for the music he creates. Otherwise, this is a fine album.

Evolver | 4/5 |
