Prog Reviewer
2 stars This is the third release from Spinetta Jade and here we can recognize a slight change in sound ending up in more radio oriented songs tan their previous albums and a more lyrical approach as well. The record contains shorter songs and while the performance from the musicians is still good, is not up to the previous albums standards. The only standout track from a musical perspective being the instrumental Ping Pong.

That being said, the record still shows some fine singing by Luis Alberto Spinetta and if you have some understanding of Spanish you should check the lyrics in songs like "Resumen Porteņo" or "Vida Siempre" since those are some of the best L.A Spinetta has ever written.

In the end, that's some of the few things that can be appreciated on this record since it's less exiting than the previous records while keeping the same pop jazz style found on "Los Niņos que escriben en el cielo". I can only recommend this record to Spinetta's completionists, but if this is your first record from this artist you will feel very disappointed.
