4 stars La Maquina de hacer Pajaros. This record is more eclectic and ambitious than it's predecesor but , in my opinion , it does not have a standout tune like Ah te vi entre las luces. However it's a really enjoyable release.

When comparing it to the first record one first realizes that Peliculas is much calmer and jazzier. The first track is an instrumental called Obertura 777. It satrts with an acoustic intro and then has a subtle funky beat , it sounds like smooth jazz sometimes. The second track Marilyn , la Cenicienta y las Mujeres reminds me of Garcia's following band Serú Girán. It's a sophisticated rock song including synthetizers and a little chorus. No te dejes desanimar is one of the highlight's here: A majestic ballad with very interesting vocal harmonies , delicate piano playing and some violin that reminds me of Gentle Giant like another reviewer stated. Que se puede hacer... starts like a Santana song , and you can tell Charly's growing appreciation in this song and the following Hipercandombe. "El vendedor de las muñecas de plastico" sounds like a progressive tv advertisement. It's hilarious!! Ruta perdedora is another highlight here , it has emotional lyrics and impressive synthetizer sounds. The record finishes with the jazz -fusion like instrumental "En las calles de Costa Rica"

This record shows us the transition between La Maquina de Hacer Pajaros and Seru Giran , and in spite of not having epic-size tracks it's a very well composed album full of interesting ideas.
