3 stars This is the first prog album from mago and a very good one. It has a good concept and interesting lyrics. The music is very good and technical. The first song overtura mdxx is a good introduction to the disc. The second song gaia is one of the best which lasts 11 minutes features very good musicianship. Another track that i like very much is la leyenda de la llorona which is completeley instrumental and is very folkish with little metal. The flute and violin play their best here. My favorite song from the album is la venganza de gaia which is also 11 minutes long. It has long instrumental solos and great vocals too. You can find here for the first time a sound similar to dream theater in the keyboards. The most famous song is la costa del silencio and is the only one that I dislike. It is too simple and doesn't sound like mago de oz. The rest of the songs are mostly 80's metal but they are good. This is a good album and everyone should listen to it. I will recomend progfans to listen to la leyenda de la llorona and la venganza de gaia only instead of buying the album
