Prog Reviewer
3 stars A kind of romantic, passionate and shiny bright instrumental Post Rock/Math Rock which is close to Porcupine Tree's influence, yet it at the same time throws some more personal colors and ideas here and there.

In someway the structure of the tracks have the same bases, therefore they can become predictable in that regard, which also means some kind of expressive limitations as far as experimenting and daring music composition goes, opposite to Porcupine Tree´s style which was and is, if still on, one of their greatest assets.

The extended use of acoustic keys sure is welcomed as they usually deliver interesting melody lines. The mandolin like electric guitar, even though quiet ingenious, can become, by abuse, also quiet predictable. Hats off to drum player Alex Rodríguez who keeps on with creativity his role in this kind of "Hymns of Exaltation" like compositions.

There are some fabulous sections and the same a couple of astounding tracks, which if anything point out clearly that A SHELTER IN THE DESERT, is surely a band to keep track of, as this "Pequenas Hiroshimas", 2015, clearly shows out.

As for now, a very a good effort worth listening to.

***3.5 PA stars.
