4 stars I listened to this songs when I was 12...

Welcome to PA, Serú!. Serú Girán was a band which mixed many influences: Charly García was formed at a classic school, with tango influences too; Pedro Aznar (a 18-year-old boy!!) studied Jazz (he's a follower of Jaco Pastorious style); David Lebón and Oscar Moro were rockers. This first album has got some things of the 70's, but it also has some of 80's. The band's name hasn't got any meaning. Words like "Serú Girán", "Eiti Leda", "Cosmigonon" and "Seminare" are words without meaning which were invented by Garcia.

"Eiti Leda" is a prog song. It isn't a complex composition but, the formal structure, the arrangement, the orchestration... turn it to a prog song. "El mendigo en el Andén" is a beatiful ballad, with an amazing arrangement!. "Separata" is a dramatic song; very emotional and short ballad, I really like it. "Autos, Jets, Aviones, Barcos" is a latin-influenced rock song; the bass work is incredible. "Serú Girán" is a reverent composition with orchestral sounds, many voices and a much more rocker part from the middle to the end. This song is more progressive than the others. "Seminare" is one of the most popular songs in Argentina. Each person know this song... It's a nice ballad. "Voy a mil": a piece of "prog-rock'n'roll"... also, it has an istrumental part more progressive. "Cosmigonon": a strong instrumental final, its sound is quite dark and heavy. It's interesting but not much more than that.

Great beginning for S.G. For me, 4 stars.
