3 stars Please note that the original album held only six tracks (the first six of course you wise-arse) and the rest are bonus material from some acoustic guitar concert in 78 from one of their guitarist. Although good in themselves, they have nothing to do with the original album.

MIA's third album is the better rated among the connaisseur prog club and usually draws excellent criticsm. IMHO, this is a very correct album in the typical 70's Argentinian mode , sounding somewhat very close to the Italian way of doing Prog (again this is a question of cultural heritage as Argentina is a very Italian spanish-speaking country). Their music is sometimes very close to classical but has also a distinct flavour (Zaniness?!?!) rather hard to define that sometimes makes you think of Canterbury music (I had thoughts about Hatfiield"s Northettes singing , but I must really be mad....) but only on some of those numbers. The third track and the sidelong title track suite are the highlight in here. I would be tempted to give it another star but something is holding me back so 3.5 stars will do.
