    Mettavolution is the R&G record where all of their gifts are on display and in sync; it sends listeners on a holistic journey of musical discovery and emotional resonance.

    How much you want to hear the duo’s take on the Floyd song may sway your overall feeling on the record, but even for non-Floyd fans, the originals captured on Mettavolution are reason enough to check in on this always unique duo.

    Mettavolution reassures that for as long as they’re around, Rodrigo y Gabriela will be echoing their influences as only they can.

    [Mettavolution] may not be quite so astral-minded or ambitious, the apr continue to impress with their ability to shift through a variety of Latin, folk and rock styles without ever taking the easy routes. [Jun 2019, p.34]

    The first half of their fifth studio album racing by, a blur of nimble fingers and frills. The second half, a 19-minute exploration of Pink Floyd's Echoes, will divide audiences along prog and classical lines. [May 2019, p.91]

    A long and winding and faithfully atmospheric cover of Pink Floyd's Echoes that closes the album is perhaps the main attraction here, but too much of what precedes it tends to waft away into the ether. [Jul 2019, p.114]
