3 stars In 1980, I had the oportunity to saw Chac Mool Live in the Tecnológico de Monterrey auditorium (I was stuying there) and they presented a great show not for the scenography but for the good tasty music of their first album... but they played various songs from the second, like "Brillo de Luna", "Que buena razón" (*), or "El rey del Rock" (not issued in this CD). Unfortunately, bad management and differences between parts end with a good Mexican band with international talent, as happened in a same way with "Caifanes"...

The music was really good and at a high level. The tracks written here had the same thematic essence of the songs of the first album (*), and "El Rey Del Rock" was a little exercise of the Rock & Roll kind; but in general, the second recording, lacks of the force, power and creativity of their first effort... It's really a shame that the Record Industry in México don't let the musicians work alone and transform the real message of the music into a selfish mediocre Pop hype, or that the musicians really don't know how to make a team to work out a recording. And that's why, between other reasons, Carlos Santana, is making records in U.S.A. and not in México City. It's a shame, but it's true!...Good Luck!
