4 stars How already said in my review about "Soliloquio" (review #496708 in August 03, 2011, 19:27 EST), I consider "Adolescência Crõnica" a highly recommendable albun, but not in the same level of "Soliloquio". In this subsequent album from 1989 the band shows less symphonic moments than in the previous album, by the contrary, in this work the band shows a more aggressive posture. In fact much more space for guitars and less for keyboards, another great difference between the two albums is the absence of female vocals which contributes in a decisive way to make of "Soliloquio" a masterpiece. Really in some moments the music in "Adolescência Crônica" seems more closely to the ecletic-prog sound from the band PRAXIS in his album from 1987 entlited "La Eternidade de lo Efemero" whose line up includes Héctor Hernández / guitar and Ricardo Moreno / keyboards, both in the line-up from "Adolescencia Cronica" .However, the album shows one symphonic moment in the track 3 "Es una historia" a sweet ballad with some GENESIS and FOCUS "hints". The detach from "Adolescência Crônica" is the fantastic cohesion from the band to execute very intricate arrangements, full of alternate beats and a variety derivative melodies based in a main theme, which can be clearly noted in tracks such as in the track 4 "Esquizoide", 5 "Más allá que la cortina moral " and 6 "El alivio del clímax". My rate is 4 stars !!!
