3 stars I purchased this CD more than one year ago, actually without knowing anything about this band and having heard one single note from them. My motivation was mainly curiosity since they're from Cuba and I just love to have Prog CDs from all over the world and any exotic country and Fidel Castro's home country isn't really famous for coming Progressive Rock from there. Actually after listening to it a couple of times meanwhile I've to say that it certainly might be exceptional for Cuba but apart from the appealing sound of bagpipes it fails offering me anything exciting. Still the nicer and more enjoyable tracks are the dreamy ones like "Caleidoscopio" for example starting with some bird singing or "Las Praderas del Corazón". But especailly the more mid-tempo ones are sounding too much straight forward and moreover I do not like very much the vocals. The only more up-tempo track I still find enjoyable is the instrumental one "El Umbral" though being anything special neither apart from the bagpipes and moreover quite derivative. Overall the music offered here doesn't reveal much of "real progressive" sense and I could (if at all) recommend this album only to fans of lightweight, melodic NeoProg. But still good for 3 stars!
