Review by crimson87
3 stars The last record by Spinetta Jade it's really different from the first two albums of the band. The Lineup of the band had some changes like the inclusion of "Mono" Fontana in keyboards and Spinetta itself played some synths on the album. Now , the overall sound and approach of the record is VERY 80's so expect some drum machines , cheesy keyboards and more.

That being said , this record is far from bad , even if it has very few aspects of interest for prog rock aficionados since it's basically a pop album. But a good one indeed! The highlights of this record are "Entonces es como dar amor" and the ballad "Ludmila". With the exception of "Este es el hombre de Hielo" in my opinion there are no weak tracks on this album , but none of them has the quality shown on the first two records by the band. That being said , it's a far stronger release than the previous "Bajo Belgrano".

A good record but without the level of excellence of the first two albums of the band. Recommended only if you are a Spinetta Jade fan like myself but don't expect to hear jazz ? fusion on this one.

Always, the harmony is awesome and complex. (1) "Camafeo": (**) (2) "Entonces es como dar amor": (**) (3) "Amarilla flor":(* ... (read more)
