4 stars The third album from Spinetta Jade keeps the creativity and performance level of the prior albums. This one and Los niños que escriben el cielo are the best albums from Spinetta's combo. That is what I think.

The album is rich with the 80's musical influence. But in hands of Luis Alberto Spinetta, that influence is converted in something absolutely unique. Every instrument fits in his music to reach a very pleasant kind of beauty. Here you won't find the strength of Invisible albums, but a jazzy softness directed in weir metrics. We have to remark the piano work and tha bass lines. Lyrics and music here are linked to Spinetta's memories about his birth town and the critical political situation of his country in those years (80's). So, the music lines are melancholic but sharp and complex at the same time.

The best songs IMHO are: Viaje y epílogo, Era de Uranio, Resumen porteño and Bajo Belgrano. The remaining ones are nice but, in contrast, not so fantastic.

Four stars. Justice.
