5 stars This album is the best of Suis Generis. The more evoluated and is a real precursor to la Maquina de Hacer Parajos. It is a mix of folk and true sophisticated progressive rock (like the two first yes albums).

The opening track is very representative of the album : a wonderful folky beggining followed by strong instrumental developement. The singers are really emotional and coulb be compared to some south american Crosby Stills and Nash evolved in a early Yes style. The second song Tango en Segunda is decisive : a jazzy folky intro with pure vocals and herbie hancock like colors (period Thrust) is followed by a strong and nasty instrumental Theme a la Mahavishnu Orchestra (similar the second song of The Inner Mountain Flame) and King Crimson. This track is short but incredibly impressive! A Surpising and Instanteneous classic for early 70's jazz-rock prog lovers! Then the 3rd track comes with a folky early supertramp track (wonderful saxophone intervention). The rest of the album is between catchy songs (best of supertamp, who, early yes) and classic progressive rock tracks!

Highly emotionnal an inventive Prog Rock Classic from argentina (wich was definitely a proggy country in the 70's)! NB :with a wonderful cover and easy to find!!!!!
