PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Who would have thought that this little hippie folk album would make such a big impact in Argentine music and lead to much better things? This album was written by a duo of youngsters, Nito Mestre and Charly Garcia, who grew rapidly into a top notch songwriter. Vida was a big hit in Argentina, carrying a group of easy and charming fireside tunes with a great sense of melody.

The best example is what may actually be Charly Garcia's most recognizable composition: Canción Para mi Muerte, which not only has extremely memorable melodies and charming guitar/piano interplay but it also fools the listener into thinking that it is a song sung to a girlfriend. It isn't, it is actually sung to death itself. Surprising, isn't it? And this is just a shadow the much better lyrical writing of the next albums and especially Serú Girán's lyrics which border on genius.

While that is in my opinion the best song from this album, it does not mean that the rest is disappointing. There are in my opinion three other highlights and the rest mostly works as simple, charming music. Dime Quien me lo Robó, which is the longest song in the album is a mostly acoustic tune like most are, but has a somewhat story-telling structure and eventually leads to a fiery (for them) electric guitar section. Cuando Comenzamos a Nacer is a beautiful flute-driven folk tune which might not be immediate due to its simplicity but grows on you and Prosludio is a short instrumental with flute and piano interplay which is very effective and charming, a great way to close the album.

The only song that really doesn't work for me is Toma Dos Blues, a surprisingly weak blues number with no interesting solos to redeem it. I guess I could include Mariel y el Capitán's major->minor->major transitions which sound a bit silly and forced.

Nevertheless, this is an important album which while dated, still brings a pleasure to my ears.

3 stars Charly García's talent begins to blossom in this album. Even though most of the songs are quite simple and straightforward, the melodies are beautiful and memorable (as most of Charly's melodies are). Also the first examples of the powerful yet sublime vocal harmonies that Charly and Nito achi ... (read more)

3 stars Welcome Sui to PA! Charly and Nito were about 20-year boys and had a lot of fans in a short time. The first album by Sui Generis is a collection of songs which mix pop, folk, some of blues, played with a piano, an acoustic guitar, a flute, drums and a bass guitar. The arrangement shows they ...
