3 stars 3.5 stars. Of their first three albums this is my least favourite. No Zeuhl flavoured tunes but we still get a lot of adventerous music to feed on.

"La Historia No Me Convence..." is the longest track on here and perhaps the best one as well. Spacey to begin with until vocal melodies arrive 1 1/2 minutes in with a haunting background. A total change a minute later as sax and an uptempo melody takes over with vocals. It calms back down 3 1/2 minutes in as piano and vocals lead the way. Some clapping 7 minutes in and sax leads the way a minute later. "Perro Chico Malo" opens with piano as it turns jazzy with vocals. Nice bass solo after 2 minutes. Sax and vocals end it. Great tune. "Nena,No Te Vayas a Chimbarongo..." features a lot of tempo changes early. Love the drumming 2 minutes in. An ok jazzy section follows. Bass solo 4 minutes in. Sax, bass and piano are all prominant the rest of the way. Vocals 6 1/2 minutes in. "En El Bunker" opens with samples as a repititious sound takes over with other sounds coming and going. This is experimental and one of the better tracks. "Buhardillas" has a Canterbury vibe as piano leads the way. I like it.

"Rap-Rock" is an uptempo,catchy tune. Her best vocal performance so far on this album. Some great sax and guitar. "En Este Momento Ud..." is 9 seconds of instrumental sounds. Why ? "Buscando Peyotl" features slow paced drums throughout as sax comes in tastefully before 3 minutes. This is a laid back number that is so relaxing to listen to. "Gran Restrictor,Ten Piedad" opens with this pulsating sound that builds. Male vocals join in around 1 1/2 minutes. A change 5 minutes in as guitar comes in aggressively. Female vocals a minute later. "A Dolfo Y Benito..." opens with samples of someone speaking. An uptempo melody with fast paced male vocals comes in. Sax before 2 minutes. "Honour,Decencia..." is led by sax as piano and bass come and go. Some nice bass 2 minutes in. Spoken words and a calm 3 minutes in. The tempo picks back up around 5 1/2 minutes. "Sentimental Blues" is a song I just can't get into, not a fan of this style. "El Dar Del Cuerpo" opens with piano, sax and drums. Vocals after 3 1/2 minutes. Guitar before 6 minutes. Great closing tune.

Lots to enjoy here, but it's not as consistant, nor does it reach the heights of their debut or the one that came out after this one.
