4 stars Short and easy. From its debut album the band has evolved little musically, probably because they began recording late, when they had already a long road in their shoulders. Prog-rock with a small traditional Andes touch (no more celtic bits, good!). But here they finally sound mature (production?) and display instrumental mastery, plus, they venture with more complex compositions than in former albums. The ideas come out more fluent and the musicianship is so good. Maybe, this is the first album in which the flute stops doing what is expected in a folk-prog band and dares adding music to the ensemble. There are no highs, but at least half a dozen themes are great (check Mar Amargo, to mention one), easy listening, you may play them back and again without bore. There is nothing extraordinary, but the music traps you, it is moderately fast, rocky, varied and highly spirited.
