5 stars A long time ago, a friend told me "weón!, hay un baterista que se manda el solo de ticks & leeches con una bateria simple", and i answered "tay weon!, eso es imposible"*, and, like magic in the night i saw a videoclip of the band EXSIMIO in the TV, and, well, the intro of the song, Cigoto, was really good, and semed, to me, like the intro of tick and leeches. After that, and when a i could, i buy this cd (the re-issue version, with 2 extra songs : Cigoto Extend (a live) and Ensueño a live). This band, his style, is selfcalled "Evolutivo", why?, because they think that don't fit in any description, and all those name are just names, and they don't like very much them. All the players are really great, with a great technique, and all that stuff that make a band good. The first song, Cigoto, is, to me, the best song of a chilena group, here the group give us a wonderful instrumental song, because they are really good players, virtuosism by everywhere in the song, a perfect start to any band (a live is spectacular) another greeat song (to tell a few of them) is Ensueño, in this one Perez talk, saying a poem about the creation, i don't remember who write the original poem, but it doesn't matter, the only thing that matter is that song is excellent! well, you maybe are asking "and how it sounds?", well, a lot of people say that it sound like King Crimson in theyre last time, i say it sound like "No interferece" of Dysrhytmia, but a lot better, all the people who knows this group tell, without doubt, that the sound is original, if you say "is like kinb crimson", you let a lot of things out. If you're really seeking for something orinal, a band wich don't copy anything, a band that has a particular sound, you're looking for Exsimio!!!!!!!!!!!!

*"hey!, there's a drummer that make a solo like tick & leeches wirth a simple drum", "that's impossible!"
