5 stars Well, here it is, one of the most important albums on the chilean music history. This is a very weird production that broke the musical scene of my country at the late 80's.

Fulano's registred mark is a constant game with various genres from classic jazz to some completly avant garde sections thanks to the possesed bass of Jorge Campos, the syncopated drums of Guillermo Valenzuela, the awsome saxo solos by Jaime Vasquez and the pretty-hard voice of Arlette Jecquier one of the most talented vocalist of the world (I'm not joking).

The original version of this album was made for double tape and its running time was 100+. The CD version is a little bit shorter but equaly great. The album stars with "La Historia No Me Convence, Solo Me Atraganta" a 10 minutes piece with acid lyrics and many interesting improvised solos. "Perro Chico Malo" its one of the best songs of the album, really creative and full of rhytmical susprises so as "Nena No Te Vayas A Chimbarongo, No Te Vayas Hoy Andate Maņana".

One of the most hilarious songs of the album is "Adolfo, Benito, Augusto, Toribio" a rhytmical rock that made joke of Hitler, Mussolini and Pinochet. At last, we have a very dark song entitled "Gran Restrictor Ten Piedad De Nosotros" and the beautiful blues "Sentimental Blues" and "El Dar Del Cuerpo".

A masterpiece. I really recommend this album to all jazz/fusion fanatics and prog fans to know a little more about the Latina American prog/fusion music during the las 30 years...

5* and it could be 10*...
