2 stars What have you done to your fans!!??

Serú Girán reunited and they released a lackluster effort that sounds very different from their roots, abandoning almost all the prog they had. This album is even less progressive than "Peperina".

The album doesn't start too bad though. "Queen Elizabeth" is a decent instrumental with plenty of improvisation and yes-like guitar effects, but dull if compared to the closer instrumental in Peperina. "Mundo Agradable" has a pretty good chorus hook, but it's no more than a pop song with repetitive drumming. "No Puedo Dejar" has good bass-guitar riffing and a very good bass melody, so it's an improvement, and tied with the opener and the epic "Transformacion" and the closer as the best track here. "Transformacion" has delicate acoustic guitar playing and a neat percussion riff in parts, though marred by a bad vocal melodies before the middle of the song. The closing track "Muevete al Hablar" sounds a bit emotional and the instrumentation is pretty good.

However, the mediocre and even bad songs ruin this album. "Dejame Entrar", "Si Me Das Tu Amor", "Ese tren", among others. what a bunch of weak songs. The worst offender is possibly "Hundiendo el Titanic" which makes me wonder if they were possessed by the Devil to make Argentine rock fans sob in despair. Even the lyrics suffered a lot throughtout the years. This song has a cheap catchy chorus, but the rest is unimaginative rock/pop garbage that doesn't take itself seriously. It worked with "Jose Mercado" from Peperina, but not here! The vocals in the background are a joke.

Get this album only if you wan't to collect all the Seru Giran albums. I wouldn't recommend this to fans because this betrays the fans of Seru Giran while getting a huge amount of money.
