4 stars So, you thought only in Europe and in the States are good prog musicians? you're wrong, here in south America there are good progressive bands too, and one of them is La Máquina de Hacer Pájaros. Charly Garcia, member of the folk-rock band Sui Generis, decided to create this band to explore new frontiers in the musical spectrum. And he did it very well, with two fantastic albums, LMDHP and Películas, both with an extraordonary amount of good ideas, followed by beautiful lyrics.

Now, talking about this album, I specially liked Obertura 777, with an spectacular opening with the acoustic guitar and a piano creating a very nice ambient that breaks with the entrance of the drumm played by Oscar Moro. After that, it begins a pretty riff with the sinthezier accompained by some funky chords, good stuff.

Marilyn, La Cencineta y las Mujeres, the tipical rock ballad with good guitar riffs and a good message in the lyrics. No te dejes desanimar, the perfect mix between the tenderness of the verse riff in 7/4 and the progressive passage of the instrumental section.

Que se puede hacer salvo ver Películas, ingenious lyrics accompained by a latin base with the bass and guitar in the beginning...Then we find again another instrumental part.

Hipercandombe is the other one that I most like in this album. Fast and heavy riffs makes this song a permanent running, with excellent guitar riffs, followed by the synth.

El vendedor de las chicas de plástico. Nice lyrics with a relaxed ambient, with some good stuff at the instrumental part were the guitar solo takes place.

Ruta Perdedora, this one reminds me the old Sui Generis songs with good voices work. The instrumental part its just awesome, really good stuff!

En las calles de Costa Rica, instrumental song to close the album, every instrument perfectly engaged to create a versatile composition with a very good work at the bass by Jose Luis Fernandez

For me, Peliculas is an excellent addition to any prog music collection: A very complete album, good voices work and creative instrumentalization. 4 stars
