AllMusic Review by

Cast has been together for more than 20 years. Since 1994 they have released eight studio albums, four solo projects, and 2 live albums.You can hear Genesis, Kansas sans violin, Michael Gleason keys, and an obvious Latin flair in intricate rhythms and that certain ineffable passion that is Cast alone.

This release brings many wonders to fruition in an obvious maturity and honing of long-practiced skills. There is a fullness, a warmth, a unity in this release. Cast drives home a rocking, tour de force of prog power. A veritable ocean of keys, swirling rhythms, moving vocals, perfectly interwoven guitars, flute, bass, and percussion cover you in an orchestral, symphonic wonderland. All this music flows from the mind, the heart, and fingers of master keyboardist, Alfonso Vidales. Guitarist/ vocalist, Francisco Hernandez Reyes pens most of the thought-provoking lyrics with vocalist/ flutist, Dino Carlo Brassea Eguia. Rodolfo Gonzalez Quiroz is fretless bass and Jose Antonio Bringas Caire is percussion. As one mind this band of Mexicans never ceases to satisfy and amaze us album after album, show after show. Bueno! High recommendations.
