5 stars Bubu???

Kind of a silly name for a band with very sophisticated music. Bubu is one of those lost pearls which have been discovered in the last decade. And the only thing available from them is this album. It's one of the most important recoding to come from argentina, the band is taking some evident influences from prog giants as king crimson, van der graaf and frank zappa. but also include a full band using sax, flute, violin, piano and a composer/arranger, well how can you not, using all those instruments. This had also proved to be working well, the music is put down perfectly every part connect to the next smoothly and there is a feeling of a whole piece instead of a piece which is divided to chapters.

The music has a very wide range of styles fusing eclectic, symphonic, psychedelic, jazz, avant and has some fusion elements. Other than that it has a wide range of moods, from classical sounding to crazy freaky outbursts of madness, and from dissonant to very melodic and easy. The sound is brilliant and very pleasant, again credit is to arranger Daniel Andreoli which made an impressive work along with the musicians. Recording is also very good. Although always pleasant sounding the music have some aggressive parts using distorted guitar lines and fiery solos. The music is well balanced and very smart indicating of some musical education. The fusing of all styles does not cause a total mess, everything is so accurate and well played. The songs are well writen but also improvised, holding a lot of surprises making the music diverse and interesting, which is a hard thing to accomplish.

This is one of those albums that should appeal to you right away and does not need spending so much time to get used to, although being a busy sounding music, you have to spend time to notice all of it. For this exceptional, mature, fun and high standard music i can only give 5 stars.
