4 stars Psiglo II is the second and last album by the Uruguayan band Psiglo. This album shows a more mature band, and it is a great improvement to the debut. Here we have the most progressive material by them, with lots of tempo changes and masterful playing of every instrument.

"Cambiaras al Hombre" (4:35): A great opening, with some great guitar playing by César Rechac. More hard-rock than progressive. 4 out of 5.

"Heroe de papel" (3:49): A wonderful song with a strong political message (at this time Uruguay was living in a strong dictatorship, which delayed the release of this album for 7 years without this song). It shows the great flute playing by Jorge García. 5 out of 5.

"Construir, Destruir" (6:06): The weakest track of the album. The song is far too repetitive and the lyrics aren't as good as the others. 3 out of 5

"No tiene razon de ser" (7:05): Another great song, it has lots of power and a great message. Towards the end we have a decent keyboard solo. 4 out of 5.

"El juglar y yo" (8:49): By far the best song of the album. Jorge Garcia never played better his Hammond. A wonderful track that is all over the place. At 2:18 all the band really kicks of, simply outstanding. It ends with a gentle narration by Ruben Melogno. 5 out of 5.

"Gil 1080" (11:55): The epic of the band. The name of the track it's taken from the studio they had in the street "Gil" number 1080. Another wonderful track with a great group effort, everyone It's just top notch. The song goes through several changes without losing it's magic. Towards the end there is a wonderful sax solo. 5 out of 5.

In conclusion, Psiglo II is their masterpiece and probably the best progressive rock album made in Uruguay (along with El Profeta). Because of the great song and outstanding playing I will give it, 4 out of 5.
