4 stars Los niños que escriben en el cielo is Spinetta Jade sophomore effort and while it's more mainstream oriented it still features the same characteristics that made the previous álbum Alma de Diamante a really strong release: Odd time signatures , great bass lines and ethereal keyboards , this time with a more rock approach in some of the songs and a stronger 80's sound if you know what I mean , but in this record it's still tolerable.

Out of the records 10 tracks , the standouts are some Spinetta's classics like "La Herida de Paris" or "Un viento celeste" still being performed today in live concerts. There are some other particular songs that are really remarkable like "Nunca me oiste en tiempo" or "Influjo estelar". However , the record is less consistent than the previous album having some weak songs in the middle.

In the end , this record is still a good blend of jazz fusion and poppier songs like "Contra todos los males de este mundo" or "Moviola". The quality of the musicians involved is still top notch and the repertoire is more varied than Alma de Diamante but a somewhat weaker.

3.6 stars for me rounded up to 4. A very enjoyable record for the ones looking for accessible jazz fusion stuff.
