Otro disco subido por Pyra para disfrute de todos...
Este disco refuerza y confirma el posicionamiento crucial que se ha forjado desde hace años dentro de la vanguardia rockera peruana. En una exploración por el lado folcklórico que muchas veces los lleva a parecerse a los eternos Jaivas reinventados y modernizados, su fuertes inclinaciones épicas en un hard rock que recuerda a Iron Maiden en varios de sus pasajes, un cuidado melódico que permite amalgamar todos estos estilos y dan como resultado este fruto dulce y gustoso, un álbum fantástico de punta a punta...

Flor de Loto's sophomore album finds the band heading for a more mature and more robust situation of their prog-folk style. With Pérez perfectly integrated in the band as a performer and writer and his remaining three partners reinforcing their nuclear input in a perfect communion with the woodwind sounds that go expanding all over the place, we who have seem them perform live throughout the last four years can really tell that their unity has been properly and faithfully translated into record. Flor de Loto is a well-oiled team whose stride is simultaneously led by Herrera and Pérez while being fulfilled by a versatile rhythm duo. The sound production has managed to instill some sort of eerie spirit into the band's sound, in this way producing a special flow that adds magic to the reperoire's musical power. Both the opening namesake track and 'El Charango Perdido' stand out as highlights of the album. The Andean woodwinds manage to alternate the ancient magic of Inca folklore and the tight demands of prog hard rock in its lines and textures, with the lead guitar serving as the ultimate accomplice in the succession and development of the musical ideas and harmonies. It is almost incredible, yet clearly noticeable how well the strong guitar interventions and the flaming woodwind elaborations set at unison the marriage of pre-Hispanic tradition and red hot complex rock. Meanwhile, drummer Jorge Puccini delivers a powerful foundation by using his relentless stamina to wipe out the dust of the ground and using his sense of precision to lay down the pace for the melodic developments. Bassist Alejandro Jarrín uses his inventive bass lines and adornments to set some sort of bridge between melody and tempo. So, it will be a hard road for the remaining repertoire that's still to be unveiled to our ears to keep up with the incendiary pace set by these two enormous tracks. But it does, really it does. 'El Mensajero' turns things more into a more candid ambience, with the flute and recorder alternately assuming the leading role in the display of the main melody - a beautiful track with a prominent evocative vibe that ends with a sustained climax. 'Danza Celta' finds the band creating a marriage of Iron Maiden and revamped Celtic folk (inspired by El Mago de Oz), while 'Andaluces' shows them exploring the realms of Flamenco based- rock fusion: they are far more successful on the former than on the latter. In between we find the beautiful introspective acoustic serenade 'Luz de Luna', based on the essence of Norht Argentina's folk. The combination of classical guitar arpeggios and flute is simply stunning in its clever simplicity, properly adorned by tasteful percussions. Later on we'll get a similar piece, only with an extra touch of melodic rock emerging for the last minute: I'm referring to 'La Ley de la Vida'. Yes, Flor de Loto show that they are equally proficient for their rockier numbers and for their "unplugged" ones. Somewhere in the middle stands 'Desapareciendo', a romantic semi-ballad with relatively abundant lyrics that includes a very energetic interlude. 'Antares' and 'Medusa' are the tracks in which Flor de Loto work on their Rush-meets-Maiden-meets-JT habit, both being amazingly successful regarding the creation of power, cadence and sophistication. 'Antares' includes some slight touches of funk to the mix, as well as a high-spirited thrash metal coda. My fave highlights are tracks 1, 2, 3, 7 & 10, but that doesn't mean that this album isn't cohesive as a whole. It is cohesive in its inventiveness and energy - "Madre Tierra" is an excellent prog item that confirms Flor de Loto as a world-class band in the current international prog scene.

Bueno, aquí está el álbum que más me gusta de esta gran banda, dando su enorme aporte al progresivo latinoaméricano.
