2 stars A huge disappointment overall.This band is from Spain and caused some excitement in their country when they originally got together as they were known as somewhat of a super-group over there.

The first track "L 10" really surprised me with those soft seventies pop sounds and harmonies. Sure there's some tasteful guitar and good keyboards but the vocals kind of ruin it for me. "The Gift Of Life" is ballad-like although it does get fuller. I don't like it at all though. "Tempesta De Neu" is a short instrumental with lots of keyboards and percussion. It's better. "The Endless Journey" is the over 25 minute epic. I like the mellotron especially and of course with a song of this length it changes a lot. The words are corny and the harmonies make me roll my eyes though. "Tempesta De Neu" is part 2 and another instrumental and the highlight of the album for me. I like the guitar that cries out. "L9" is much like the first track, it's too syrupy and sweet. The vocals drive me to drink.

Sorry but this is one album that comes off sounding too commercial in a bad way. I cringed way too many times here.
