TRIP BEYOND THE SETTING SUN'. Their third album finds the five-piece a much more eclectic, genre-bending outfit. Lineup turmoil and artistic growth alike are to blame, but whatever did it, their sound has matured into dark textures of classic adult prog, with glimpses of the raw stoner sound they came from, but a more engrossing take overall on it. On the whole, MAS ALLA DEL SOL PONIENTE might not appeal to some because of its Spanish lyrics or progressive indulgences, but the record proves theres still stylistic ground to be covered in stoner rock and doom, and its reaches toward classic guitar ground it mostly anyway. Its highlights are genuinely that, and there are a few moments on these tracks where it sounds like Don Juan Matus is the result of visionary creativity.
