The album begins with a long intro'ed 'Recuerdos' that eventually breaks out into groovy beat. But I love how Murcof keeps the rhythmic track in the back while the pound of the piano hammer in the low end and reverb-drenched high keys take precedence in the aural space. This places heavy emphasis on the mood of the track - markedly sinister. Love it.

After this I think the album lulls a bit with the next few tracks, which focus more on ambience, until 'Reflejo', a track that carefully builds until it spills over into a progression with a sense of imminence. In terms of overall album, things are up and moving once again.

'Rios' has an addictive rhythm that contains tonal elements, helping the track build its melody along with the strings and once-again-present high, rustic, reverb-laden keys (they certainly give that "old attic" feeling). The track progresses into a breakbeat of sorts that lets off finally with a swan song from the strings.

'Camino'. Man I love this track (I seem to like all the evil tracks). The staccato notes and the fast clicky little hi-hat are perfect. The call and response between the violin and bassline conjure the image of a stealthy assassin relocating here and there between dark alcoves under the street lights, enclosing in on his prey.

Thank you Murcof for these amazing soundscapes.
