After "Invisible", L.A.Spinetta created Spinetta Jade. The Spinetta Jade's first album was a good begining. The musical influences in this work are mainly Jazz and afro-latin rhythms and some things of classic symphonic rock.

(1) "Amenabar": an strange composition. In some parts, this theme is a bossa nova, but it has jazz-rock parts. Instrumental, with interesting solos. ****

(2) "Alma de diamante": a kind of prog ballad. A nice song. In the middle and arriving the ending, there are 2 beautifuls synth's solos.***

(3) "Con la sombra de tu aliado (El aliado)": an intrincate composition. Odd meters, calculated harmony, "virtuosity" in the solos.... ****

(4) "Dale gracias": one of the less symphonic themes from this album. The sound is some "bluesy".***

(5) "La diosa salvaje": in a simple view, the voices might be shocking. But the song finally is nice. There is an amazing piano's solo.***

(6) "Digital Ayatollah": excellent instrumental composition. Complex, symphonic, 'jazzy', 'rocker', 'arabic' and 'superb' work.*****

(7) "Sombras en los álamos": the 'epic' song of this album. A complex composition too, as the previous track. Very emotional lyrics, and accompaniment.****

Average rate: 3.7 stars
