4 stars I want to ride my Bycicle...

Third studio album by 'Serú'. The style is the authentic sound by SG. At this album, the lyrics about politics are more frequent. There are also, some melancholic lyrics.

A los jóvenes de ayer: the beginning couldn't be better. A los jóvenes de ayer is, may be, the most progressive work by Serú. The introduction is a tango-influenced composition with metter changes, complex harmony and skilled musicians. When the song starts, it's a rock ballad, but after that the composition becomes a prog work again. Just listen to this great song... and enjoy it.*****

Cuanto tiempo más llevará: a nice song at the beginning; a strong theme at the major climax part.****

Canción de Alicia en el país: this song is an allegory. Charly García is a clever lyrics writer and he used the Alice's Adventures in Wonderland to speak about Argentina (In my country, there was a military government). The music is awesome, too. It's quite eclectic... rock'n'roll; minor mode, major mode...; vocals...****'

La luna de Marzo: an instrumental piece... a synth's solo over a cyclic base. Nice composition.****

Mientras miro las nuevas olas: long live rock'n'roll! Probably, the less progressive song here. But it's OK. The lyrics are quite melancholic.***

Desarma y sangra: is a perfect song... It's a journey for modes (scales). Here, we can see the classical music influence in Charly. I can't describe some more. Just linten to it.*****

Tema de Nayla: a typical Lebon's song. A classic rock ballad, but with the typical SG's sound. Pay attention to the keys solo: an interesting jazz-rock arrangement.***'

Encuentro con el Diablo (Meeting with the Devil): It's another reference to politics. A military governor had a meeting with some argentinian rockers. Then Garcia wrote this song. The music isn't too nice, but the lyrics make to this song interesting.***

Awesome album by SG. Excellent addition to any prog music collection.
