3 stars Chac Mool is (were) a great Mexican band of progressive rock, their latest album El Mensajero de los Dioses was a very good stuff, and with Nadie en Especial, i think are their onlly 2 very prog albums, this is their debut album, and the most well known in Mexico, this album is a very good one, it has 7 studio songs, the songs on Nadie en Especial, but it also has bonus tracks, that bonus tracks were recorded from their first concert in Mexico City, so here we can listen to their early notes, and it is a good experience. The album is not the best, is not the most complex or the best arrangements, but is really good, here we can find a clear Pink Floyd`s influecne, in fact, in one track we can hear some notes as in Have a Cigar, they are quite similar, also, this album has a good mix of instruments as a good keyboard work, some strings like cellos and a bit of flute, is totally a symphonic album, with sthe unique sound of the coming 80`s era, the opening song Un Mundo Feliz and Salamandra are my favorites, after all, this is a good album, but not essential, i cant really suggest it to you. 3 stars
Review by ZowieZiggy
3 stars This very confidential band (at least outside Mexico) plays a pleasant symphonic and spacey music.

Some numbers are tinted with ethnic sounds like "Aymara" which could remind the very ancient times of this beautiful country. A great piece of music to meditate while sitting in front of the Kukulcán pyramid in Chitchen Itzà. Not far from there (200 metres) you can find the little statue of Chac Mool from where the band got its name from.

This is my preferred song from this album. A great combination of Mexican rooted music and a spacey and relaxing part.

This album opens with rare synth sounds. Almost sci-fi and chaotic for two minutes. Fortunately "Un Mundo Feliz" (a happy world) switches to an excellent spacey atmosphere. Floyd is very much present, but it will be a consistent aspect of their music on this album.

"Nade Especial" for instance. It automatically reminds me of the end of "Welcome To The Machine". This album features lots of synthesizers and privileged the instrumental parts. Which is good because I am not always convinced by the lead vocalist (Mauricio Bieletto). His tone of voice is rather uniform and not really captivating.

This is mostly noticeable during "Salamandra". It's a pity because there are lots of very good music featured on this album. Very much space-rock oriented (more than prog folk actually).

Still, a song as "El Día Que Murió El Rey Camaleón" holds any Tull aspects you could imagine. Flute of course is very much the key factor to enhance this feeling. Some improvised moments can also relate this number with Crimson (early period).

The weak point of this band is definitely the vocals. If the singer would be a little more demonstrative and emotional, this album would have been really good. As such I can't go over three stars. Arriba México!
