4 stars Ok, I will try not to ruin another high eclectic rating here but on the other hand I will have to be honest to everyone (including myself) so it's up to Bubu to prevent me from doing so. I have a feeling Anabelas will be allright in my hands because I actually hear real music in first minutes of the long epic. But alas, also here the eclectic band feels the need to fall into chaotic and distorted passages. What's with those eclectic bands ? Why do they prefer this ? Maybe I need a sort of brainwash to be able to appreciate this kind of music. Bubu at least alternate things with real musical (with melody that is) passages. The long epic is pretty complex with lots of shifts and moods. Some parts are truly mesmerizing and admirable (hence my remark that things will come out fine with this band and album). I feel the music prevails here so that's a big plus at least.

The B-side (Viaje de Anabelas + Sueños de Maniquí) returns more to the dissonant style initially followed by crazy sax and nice guitar. Notice the great bass ! Also here complex music but at least it's music for the greater part. The Viaje song features interesting violin by Sergio Polizzi accompanied by good vocals. Also here some weird passages but again the music comes out on top. Hey, I can live with this stuff, I told you Bubu would be allright in my hands. Challenging music this is and sometimes I even prefer this to real (mainstream melodic) music. And when I do, I will think of this unique output from 1978, this Argentine gem. Recommended for all proggers and ultimately I will be able to squeeze out a four star rating because it's prolific music and simply deserves the 4.
