1 stars My god, what a boring album. Knowing the mexican RIO style, I was expecting it to be furious and dramatic classical- orientated kind of music. Instead, I got almost 40 minutes of random noises, spoken words, dull ambient and not a single one thought-out composition at all! This band does not make music in vein of Univers Zero. In fact, it is closer to improvised songs by Henry Cow, but even in this case, there's no comparison, as HC's improvisations are full of energy and original feeling. To make things worse, the sound quality is totally awful and muffled, although I'd rather blame cassette format rather than the band itself. There's absolutely nothing creative or pleasing about this album except for the cover, which looks promising (but as it turns out - completely misleading).

What else can I say? If you're looking for great quality mexican RIO, go for Decibel, Culto Sin Nombre or Nazca, but don't even touch this monstrosity - unless you're a fan of almost pure noise. Extremely NOT recommended.
