AllMusic Review by

Mexican band Agora is proof positive that there is more to Latin music than Shakira, Ricky Martin, and Los Tigres Del Norte. The band puts forth a blend of progressive rock and metal that will certainly call to mind artist such as Dream Theater and Fates Warning far more readily than their aforementioned countrymen. One can also hear elements that call to mind people like Rick Wakeman and Emerson, Lake & Palmer within this disc. One word of warning for those who don't speak Spanish, though -- this CD is all in that language, so don't expect to understand the lyrics if you are not versed in the language. Due at least in part to that language barrier, the album can also come across as a bit repetitive and lacking in variety. Still for fans of the prog/prog metal genre, this disc is really an intriguing find.
