3 stars Mamalluca is a good idea and a excellent piece of experimental music, is the musicalization of some poems of Gabriel Parra who died in the '80, but that musicalization has the characteristic that is made with a sinphonic orchestra, the sound some times is beauty, the scent of a feel, a grat hability to impact with the music, sometimes melancolic another mor happie, another times is really bad like in "El Tambo". But, after all, I think, is good to have it, that isn´t a loose of time at all. I only say it could be better for "Los Jaivas". I think that it seems like theese bands when found them way they make once and another time works very similars, and don't want to experiment anymore, that's my way of think. A last comment is that the topic of these conceptual album is the desert, this pacific place where you can see the sky and all it stars, the calm that you can feel in this place and how the natives used it to them rituals and now is used to investigate the space with the most moderns astronomic observatories. without doubt I think that the force of this place makes images tike the butterfly falling in the universe and the music sorround it. To apreciate the totally feel I recomed to see the video of these album, is like the catharsis of all the ¿good feelings? in you. That passages makes this album a great album, but not the better of Los Jaivas
