1 stars Mirar Hacia El Centro" starts with keyboards and heavy guitar. At time 7:00 the song calms down and (male)vocals join in. Note, Mariela Gonzalez is gone and that's sad, because the male voice cannot compete to her, not even close. At 11:30 the song changes again to keyboard oriented instrumental. For an over 17 minutes song it cannot keep up the interest - it doesn't have enough to offer. The song is actually 17 minutes of uninspired organ soloing! 2 stars.

"Perpetuum Karma" - a 15 minutes organ solo, self repetitive annoying organ solo! Near the end there's a vocal gap that grants a short relief from that keyboard player. Certainly the weakest track. 1 stars.

"Del Absimo Al Sol" is a beautifulish "gilmour" ballad, but again: too long and uninspired. The good thing is, keyboards doesn't ruin this song. 2 stars.

"Travesia" is just another organ solo. Wah! Certainly almost weaker and more annoying than "Perpetuum Karma"! 1 star.

"Cruces Y Sombras" continues the hammond/keyboard thing in a manner that when "En Ese Viento" arrives, the listener is so pissed off, that he hangs himself. 1 and 1,5 stars.

If you survive listening to this record, i'll promise, you'll hate Lalo Huber (the keyboard player) for the rest of your life. Hope, you don't begin to hate organs, for that's possible too.

There's 3 important things Nexus should do immediately: 1. Kick Lalo Huber out, Fast! He thinks he's the newborn Bach or Organ God or something and I've never heard weaker and more naive player. 2. Hire Mariela Gonzales back. 3. Stop marketing their albums by mass-posting praising reviews all over the internet.

Make yourself a favor: Don't ever listen to this record, it may cause you to hate organs and synths and all keyboards.
