Cast - Infinity (2002)

The tenth album from this band from Mexico.

The band is a quintet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, keyboards, flute and vocals.

The band had help from a couple of guest musicians who provided guitars and vocals.

I have often compared Cast to the Swedish band The Flower Kings and labeled them as the Americas answer to this Swedish band.

This album goes down that path too.

Cast is really one of the better symphonic prog bands in the world and I will later this summer review their new album. You will find a lot of Cast album reviews in # 1 of this blog too.

The band has gone a bit native, a bit South and Latin-American on this seventy minutes long album. The music is very much symphonic prog with a lot of Genesis references throughout. 

There are some really cool Latin-American details here too.

The music is good throughout and pretty much the usual Cast standard. This is another good album from them and this band is highly recommended.

3 points
