3 stars This debut album from this Spanish band is closely related with the work from Mike Oldfield (but with such a name, there is no wonder).

This album is mostly instrumental even if here and there a sweet female vocal part is filling some tracks. But they are more vocalizing as far as I'm concerned. The music from "ELS NOSTRES PETITS AMICS" is very relaxing, almost New Age with a decent folk touch.

The use of some less conventional instruments certainly adds a feel to this work. Only the long "Somiedo" (almost nine minutes) sounds a bit too classical to my taste. This album is quite in line with some future works from the band ("Canciones De Los Mundos Perdidos") and should please the Oldfield fans.

This is nothing from the other world, but a succession of natural and fine music that could have been used to illustrate some documentary. A good debut album: three stars.
