With songs shorter than usual for the genre, Más Alto que el Sol is probably the greatest and mostly fundamental musical attestation of creativity ever testified in the genre. Although the first two tracks – namely, Better Run and Burning Trees – probably condenses better the essence and the descriptive qualities of Color Horror’s music, the entire album is the literal consecration of a profound innovation brilliantly inserted into the genre without deforming it. On the contrary, it widely accepts and expands its sonorous possibilities into an ever increasing gradual pyramid of elevated rapture.
Singing in English as well as their native Spanish, Color Horror demonstrates the genuine impulses that drives their music all the way through, throughout the album. A marvelous state of the art work, a true and vehemently whimsical masterpiece, Más Alto que el Sol deserves all compliments for its sensational, genuine and unparalleled level of originality. With a strength that easily modifies the music to insert the listener into a whole new level of wonderful perceptions, this record is destined to become a huge reference in the genre, for the underground scene.
With a great and sensational energy that respects, but at the same time formidably aggregates a whole new set of qualities into the genre, Color Horror shows on this great album Más Alto que el Sol why they deserve to have a long and fruitful career: because they’ve created an entirely new genre from an existing one. And what a marvelous work this album has revealed itself to be!
