5 stars You can call this: "the second concept album of Argentina" the first is the bible of Vox Dei of 1971. The best concept album of Argentina, it's mixes jazz, latin folk (chamamé, malambo, chacarera), symphonic rock, and a little of balladry. I think this album it's much better then "Tiempo de resurrección", The overture is a finest example of folk prog of southamerica. Gustavo Santaolalla plays very good the guitar and charango, Ara Tokatlian plays the flutes, kena, saxo and reyboards but the keys are minimal. The percussion is very good and the bass too. The sound is tipical of the records of the 70's of Argentina, the only band who can have the very best of sound technology in that time are Aquelarre and Sui Generis, but the sound is good of course is not the ¡guau! of the cuality, and the funny thing if you can have this album you can hear the sound of the vinyl ¡plop! and things like that. Well the only way i can have this album is from internet i konw is bad and the other stuffs but is the only way i have to get this record. Is double and long but worth the try of listen.
