5 stars This one has to be a classic from Mexico. But for me, there's more to it than just buying this prog CD from a band from my country. They live actually in the same city that I live, in fact, I enjoyed an even deeper relationship with this band. David Martínez, the drummer (an excelent drummer by the way), was my drum teacher, so he sold it to me personally. I made friends with him and he told me all about being in this prog band and he told me it was great, unfortunately they have disbanded. But I got to see them live here in Monterrey, Mx and what a show really, apart from the stuff on their CD, which they played flawlessly, they played "Red" and "Lark's tongues in Aspic part II " !!!! They put in quite a show really, and well, I owe much to David, he was the one who got into prog in the first place, and I felt I improved lots when he was teaching me, anyways, this is a very good album from this mexican prog band and you can sense influences from the big names in prog here. One day he showed me a demo with songs that would've eventually become their next album, but it never came to pass. Those songs he showed me were like darker and even more technical, but I don't know why they never did it, it's been a while since I've seen David, anyways, if you by any chance bump into this album, check it out, its really worth it.
