4 stars What a neat album. It is a work made with silk gloves. When listening it, you can find a high level of accuracy. The disc has many rhythms, but in each of them, even in the jazzier or harder ones, the musicians keep the order and precision. At the same time, it is an album involved in the style of its age. That is why we can find on it some pop elements. But to say that it is a poppy album would be unfair. It just has a special 80's atmosphere that makes it... evocative.

Moviola, the opening theme, contains many rhythms, but we can not say it is a fussion song. It is a very well built song. It has great and sharp guitar and a good work in bass guitar.

La herida de Paris is the accuracy made song. Voice, guitar, bass guitar, keys, drums... Everything fits at perfection. Even the lyrics, which are full of poetic images.

El hombre dirigente. Nice song. It has a very interesting speed that means the topic of the song. The lyrics are about yuppies and their hunger of power and money.

Sexo. A lot of jazz in this song. It is smooth, and because of that I like it less than the other ones. As a single song it is very nice; but in the middle of such a powerful album, you feel that the ship lost speed.

Siguiendo los pasos del maestro. Loss of accuracy, but a great trip.

Contra todos los males de este mundo. Accuracy and power returns. Spinetta sings with softness and force in the same song. Guitar play with bass guitar in a weird (funny?) melody. It's rock and roll in the best Spinetta's style.

Un viento celeste. It has the 80's feeling, but with a very nice complexity. I like very much the instrumental part: powerful jazz with stops and strong strings of bass guitar. This one sounds like a spring.

Umbral is a tipical Spinetta's ballad. Full of beautifull images sung in a weird and beautiful way.

Influjo estelar. Instrumental with rare metrics. Beautiful piece of art.

Nunca me oiste en tiempo. My favorite song from this album. Here you can realize why Spinetta is the best musician in Argentina. Lyrics have an obscure meaning, but make you feel a lot of things. Everything is in its correct place.

Honestly, I would give 4.7 stars to this disc. But as I have noticed that its progressiveness is a matter of controversy, I'm going to give 4. 2 (it means 4) stars, because less would be unfair.

PS: For those who have listened very carefuly this album: Have you noticed that sometimes we can listened in this album something like the sound of a steam or gas scaping from a compressing device? You have to pay special attention.
