Prog Reviewer
5 stars With apologies for lack of originality I will give the same comment as for the previous album 'Coses Nostres': possibly not 5-stars from a total Prog-Rock point of view but certainly a 5-star Jazz-Rock-Fusion album. Probably Iceberg's best album, musically as outstanding as 'Coses Nostres' and yet more polished, especially for what concerns Max's guitar. Max was already a fast player but a bit 'dirty' in his fastest alternate picking runs, and here his improved technique together with the newer hardware and recording capabilities make him sound much smoother even at the same or even faster picking speeds.

As with many fusion records, much of this album relies on soloing displays, but there's still a lot of variation and quality to keep the listener's attention.

The short 'Sentiments' opens with a haunting middle east atmosphere, you could nearly say that Dream Theater took here an inspiration for the beginning of Metropolis Pt. 2 'Home'.

'Andalusia, Andalusia' has a bit of everything, mid-tempo fusion, mediterranean feel, tempo breaks, a shift to samba-like rhythm, alternating and synchronized solos etc. It even feels like some Dixie Dregs tune at moments.

'A Sevilla' displays again great dynamics with a beautiful piano intro and then guitar & keyboards melody, tempo breaks, alternate furious solos etc.

'Ball De Les Fulles' is a mid-tempo track with always amazing drumming, bass and soloing, and a similar pattern follows with 'Magic' which has great solos on a groovy main beat.

'Joguines'is probably the most distictive song, very mediterranean with clean guitar and piano.

Their best album in my opinion although you should also check at the very least their previous 'Coses Nostres', these two are very close to eachother in overall quality.

Gerinski | 5/5 |
