5 stars This album is something incredibly amazing.

It might (as not) be a concept album, telling a story of a man and his personal troubles, based on the actual chilean society. However, in case of not being a concept album, Entre La Inseguridad y el Ego speaks directly to me, anyway.

The mix of styles is incredibly broad to be on a single album: jazz, RIO, avant-garde (in some sort of Zappa-esque way), reggae, latin rythms, a bit of spanish rythms; also, lots of experimentation, and even hard rock, combined with an excellent instrumentation and perfect vocal arrangements.

It's something impossible to describe how much I liked this album. Reflects the mood of the man of the story in every song: depression, dreams, crazy nights, frustration and fears, all in an incredibly funny and musically beautiful way.

The album starts with two songs that might as well be the low point of the album, but the other songs make up for it.

If you want RIO or experimentation, listen to Jale, Copete y Pucho. If you want a wild, reggae-zappa fusion, listen to Jah! No Quedan Huiros.

But if you want to listen to an excellent debut album, with superb instrumentation and compositions and incredible lyrics, listen to this album, there will be no regrets, I promise.

5 stars.
