 Opinions and other informations:

    

Basque prog band whose sound is different from most. There's no real folk influence, and it's primarily keyboard-based rather than guitar based. The sound is something more akin to Castilian bands like Bloque, Asfalto or Goma. It's sort of symphonic prog with keyboard and guitar jams here and there. Sometimes average, but often exciting, reaching a sort of peak with the climactic closing track "Bilatzea", which has a most memorable theme, one of many on this excellent album. Mike Ohman


The album is a suite-rock that describes the efforts of a man for coming out of the frustrating situation he is living in. Although it may seem ingenous, they utilize good lyrics by the poet Xabier Lete. Their music has to be placed into the symphonic sound of thet time, featuring keyboards. Javier Aguirre en "Atropos"
