3 stars I appear to be in the minority on this site as I feel their debut is much better than this one. It just seems like the vocals are the focus here and they really try to make things dramatic at times and at others it very Folky. I'm not a fan of either style.

"Hijos Del Agobia" starts things off on the wrong foot for me. My least favourite track. This is all about the vocals. He reminds me of some of the Italian vocalists on this one. Synths are in the background and we get some brief lead guitar 1 1/2 minutes in. "Rumor" is catchy with vocals and some nice guitar. "Sentimiento De Amor" opens dramatically then it settles when the vocals arrive. A calm before 3 minutes as the vocals stop. It's very Spanish sounding a minute later then the vocals return.

"Recuerdos De Triana" features a drum solo early and ends with what sounds like a party. Drums and synths stand out early on "Ya Esta Bien !". It settles to a spacey vibe then the vocals take over and it picks up. It settles again later. "Necesito" is my favourite track and one of only two tracks that I really enjoy. The guitar is prominant as the vocals join in. Love this tune. Strummed guitar, drums and vocals stand out on "Sr. Troncoso". "Del Crepusculo Lento Nacera El Rocio" is the other track I like.The acoustic guitar intro sounds great, very intricate. Vocals are theatrical and we get background synths as well. It picks up 1 1/2 minutes in then settles again as the vocals return.

Good album but not one I enjoy that much hence the 3 star rating.
