4 stars ...A SECOND

Yes, their second release and one more step to become the most innovative and creative Mexican act.

This album is even more experimental and slower to digest than the 1st one, more in the avant-garde/RIO style but as always being a smart mixure of many genres, and a very original output.

Some songs stay in the Levin/80īs KC style like "Cosmica" and "Escapista" with a jazzy touch, and some others explore further like "Intro" with strange music effects and indian-like singing,"El Camino" with their classic combination of sax, acustic guitar and percussions, or "Balun Canan" which even sounds a little space/psychedelic at the beginning to turn into a very melodic piece with nice clarinet.

And also they can go from middle-east with "Mil Noches" to the ancient south american lands with "Retorno"wich contains flute, guitar and drums in a pre-hispanic vein. And there are real gems like "In Statu" which proves how good Stick player Mauricio Sotelo is, "Elementos" starting very melodic and combining different wind instruments and strings.

The rest of the tracks are "fillers" or connections to the songs, and they are basicly street, cars and train noises and sounds, with people chating, and all of them have names referring to traveling which i think is the main subject of the album, shown on the artwork too (very original BTW).

This is an excellent effort showing the incledible skills of these creative musicians, that i insist, they deserve more exposure and attention of all kinds of prog lovers.

4 stars

Viva el Prog!
