A Mexican psychedelic band whose album is full of dreamy organs, West Coast sounding guitar leads and fuzzed out backwards guitar work. It's crystal clear English vocals blend beautifully with the weaving keyboards and vibrato guitar style. The better tracks include Love Is The Way, which features some good woodwind and percussion playing; the slow-paced title cut with its church organ sound; People Deceive, with its great dreamy organ intro, Procol Harum-style organ sound and Now and Something I Heard (Last Night), which are both notable for catchy organ and melodic vocals. Recommended.
