4 stars The first album from this incredible band was a groundbreaking record in the quite poor progressive movement in Spain in the 90´s. While many bands enjoyed themselves in the melodic vein, DIFICIL EQUILIBRIO reinvented the crimsonian language (in fact, Alberto Díaz was a member in Fripp´s Guitar Craft) to create a highly dynamic, but also technical music. Their music in this record can be divided in two different styles: noisy improvisations (not in a R.I.O. vein, but more in the aggressive jazz rock) and structured compositions reminding King Crimson (in the middle 70´s for the style, in the 80´s for their sound). There are also two covers. one from DURRUTI COLUMN (a band they really adore) and another from KING CRIMSON (the abridged version of Fracture).

This first record shows a band very innovative and creative, with lots of ideas that would appear in their latest albums. Songs of real interest in this record are, amog others, Naufrago, Malva Bruma and A.S. Prisma in their improvisative side, and their compositive side is well represented by Despertar a la Utopía, where they give their best in creating a song beautiful in its strangeness.

Although it is clearly not a masterpiece, the effort presented by the band is quite above the mean, and this record deserves great attention, specially for those interested in recent developements in the crimsonian school and the soft side of avantgarde.
