5 stars Oh mi first review, well this La La Máquina de Hacer Pájaros debut album in which many differences between the songs can be noticed.

The first song called Bubulina has a great synth opening with volume raising until the apperaeance of an overdrived guitar leading to the union of the whole line-up.The drumming in this song is perfect but the most interesting side of this song is the middle part in which a beatiful keybords-synths-guitar playing takes part.A beatiful song.

The 2nd one is a short folky song with a really nice passage and a common piano solo( DO NOT expect Keith Emerson in here) with a perfect bass playing, somehow reminding me to Squire.

Boletos, Pases y abonos has an interesting mixture of 70'-funk style with a jazzy guitar work in some passages.The bass and drums fits perfectly while the singing.At the middle of the song a 2/4 rock 'n roll almost common section starts leading to a perfect end.Just listen to it!

"No puedo verme" ( I can`t see myself) has an introduction really closed to Deep Purple's "A 2000 " from Burn album, then reaching to a funky part( a repeated pattern in this album) to a relatively calm passage and the back to the typical latin funk.Pay attention to the drums.

Rock has a beatiful introduction( perhaps the first Seru Girán song considering only the introduction .LOL) and then is not prog rock.

"Por Probar el vino y el agua salada"(" Because of tasting the wine and salty water") is a pure folk song but really enjoyable, with clever lyrics and a marvellous lead vocal melody and a violin behind in orderto make the song more authentic.WARNING: you may feel some piano similar to ELP`s The Sheriff, don`t panic!

The last Song "Ah, te ví entre las luces" is simply incredible, surprising for the one who is listening.Evertything in this song is just perfectly done, every note, every drum fill, everything.Honestly I still have not heard anything similar to it in ANY band.

Simply Awesome!!!

My rating: Bubulina:5/5, Como Mata el viento norte: 3.5/5, Boletos, Pases y Abonos:4/5, No puedo verme: 4/5, Rock:3.5/5, Por Probar el vino y el agua salada:4/5, Ah, te vi entre las luces 5/5.

Overall:29/35= 4 stars

I`l make it five because of being a debut album and because of being far from Europe classical prog rock.!!
