3 stars I was really blown away by this Mexican's band debut so I thought i'd check out their latest studio album "Metalmusica". It has a couple of negatives going against it right away for me. First of all it's a double album and second of all there are a lot of improvs here. I've experienced very few double albums that i've offered up 4 stars to,most bands can't put out over a 100 minutes of consistantly great music, and lets face it improvs are often hit and miss which is the case here. The music is very unique here with these strange instruments some of which are even homemade. So this is difficult music to describe or to know what's actually making the sounds. Some of this recording is so good that I hate to give 3 stars, but then we'll get music that I find repetitive and boring. This is very much a mixed bag for me sadly. I was hoping for something more like the debut.

Highlights are the opening track "Fundicion" with it's in your face distortion and dissonant sax. It turns spacey 4 1/2 minutes in. Amazing tune. "Indomble" just really clicks with me. I like the beat when it kicks in before a minute. "Ernadu" is almost East Indian sounding early on with lots of sax late. "Del Nois Al Nais" has a cool intro that is quite powerful. It turns spacey later with prominant sax. I like the bass after 6 minutes.

Obviously there are many fans of this double album if you check out the other reviews here. It's interesting enough that I would also suggest you check out this album. I just don't enjoy it that much. 3 stars.
