4 stars This album is on the pretty much the same basis as the previous one. Which is not necessarily bad thing, as it worked very well last time. There's however one difference - I feel veil of enchanted land over these tracks, that something magical is here, like migty misty, glowing forest in the night. While it's of course still dark in mood. I wonder where this guy gets inspiration from.

Now I'm without doubts, there's no electronic drummer, this sounds perfectly like rock band. I wouldn't know that there is just him, if he hadn't told me.

There's progress in something. It's still high class music, but this time managing to capture more and more "moods", atmosphere changes. And I think that it's because of synths that are quite prominent here. And also compositions are more adventurous and dramatic than before. These things helps.

Example of these magical traits can be heard in first minute of Verde por Dentro, through the track and after all in other tracks as well. And again, word "enchanted" pops in my mind, because that's what this it. Now that I ran out of synonyms, let's move forth.

4(+), and try to think about three wishes when you're listening this album. I hope some of you will be.

Little bit better than previous album, but not masterpiece. Yet.
