" ... and every night I`m watching the Earth rise. I heard that amazing plants and creatures live inside the moon and so I came here fascinated. The Moon appeared before me with light water among the silvery shores. Among the sweeping flowers there were gigantic tardigradas moving smoothly. The weather here was always mild, without winds, without rains and fogs, without heat and cold. I was among the selenites growing lunar trovants, and I participated in the gauds of the lunar dwellers. But everything here reminds me of my home ... And I know that I will never get back. Plants sprouted inside the ship, struck it through ... I feel excruciating tiredness and I'm absolutely exhausted.... All I can do is watch the Earth rise every Lunar night ..."
(Francis Godwin, 1638)
"....Damn, there is a LOT going throughout this set. Rule #1 with this music is to not get too settled into any one groove because Vespero will surprise you with a constant stream of compositional and thematic obstacle course turns. And it’s all done with a seasoned acrobat’s sense of excellence. Space rockers, progheads, jazz fusion fans…. ALL step this way because there’s something for everyone. Highest… and I mean HIGHEST recommendation..." Jerry Kranitz from Aural Innovations
"...En estas épocas en las que se privilegia a la música uniforme y repetitiva en los medios de comunicación convencionales, bandas como Vespero son un gran respiro que debería servir de ejemplo a quienes se aventuren en el mundo del rock. En la medida en la que continúen haciendo música sin autoimponerse limitaciones, pareciera que el grupo podría existir por siempre..." by Guillermo Martínez Guillermo Martinez Minutti from Rock Privado.
