“Lack Of Dreams” kicks off with Adam’s drums before luscious eastern themes paint evocative pictures. It weaves its enthralling magic through various cleverly constructed shifts, unexpected twists and another scorching guitar break along with lovely vocals from guest Natalia Krakwiak.
After this extraordinarily impressive journey comes a pair of equally compelling and near seamless instrumentals. “Is This The Devil From Spain?” and “Is That The Devil From Spain Too?”.
The first opens with Spanish guitars illuminating some of the darkness like shafts of light through a curtain. With the second Osada Vida suddenly switch gear and take us on a journey through another mind blowing maze.
The album comes to an end with “Neverending Dream” another fascinating labyrinth adventure. It seems clear that music literally flows from the fertile creativity of this band and I am sure there is some quality stuff lying on a cutting room floor somewhere. What is left though is of the very highest quality indeed.
Imaginative, compelling, and never predictable this is an album well worth diving headlong into.
Uninvited Dreams is available through Metal Mind Productions in two versions. There is a standard jewel case issue along with a digipak version which has three bonus tracks, “2304”, “S.L.E.E.P.” and a special single version of the title track.
