5 stars Certainly one of the best fusion albums ever. Coincidentaly with the departure of Gustavo Santaolalla (who's influence in the group was strong enough to keep them from the developement of their true style) they left the etnic and folkloric sound for a complete jazz- rock fusion venture with LOS ELEMENTALES as their prime opus. Ara Tokatlian shows himself as a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist and composer, sadly, they moved to the States where they found other musical interests (film scores, etc. ) and so, the follow ups are a blend of jazz, rock and South American folk music more elaborated but with a clear lack of the feel that you find in LOS ELEMENTALES.
