3 stars I hadn't quite warmed up to this album as some others had. IBIO is often regarded as one of Spain's better prog rock bands, but I can't see that myself. I own the LP, on the Movie Play label (the label with the green octagon). The problem I have most is Lily Alegria's singing. Although he sings on only two cuts, I find his wailing style a bit grating to me. But for the most part, this album reminds me of the Italian prog scene, some of the cuts remind me of IL VOLO, especially in the string synth department. Also Mellotron is used from time to time, something Il Volo never used. Standard synthesizers are used to, but I haven't been too impressed by that. Forgot to mention it was Mario Gomez Calderon who was responsible for the keyboards. Side one (the first four cuts) tend to be the best, as, to me, side two seems just OK. Not quite essential in my book, but worth having if you collect obscure prog like me.
