3 stars The last classic by Serú...

Peperina is a strange album. In this album, the progressive side is in the Harmony, in my opinion. I really like the orchrestation too, It´s awesome.

Peperina is a kind of tea which is common in Cordoba (a province of Argentina). The song Peperina is an ironic reference to a journalist called Patricia Perea (from Cordoba) who 'hated' Serú Girán. The work is a mix of a ballad and a bit of rock'n'roll. The arrangement and the instrumental part is really interesting. The synth's solo is incredible. I love this song.****' / Llorando en el espejo is a typical emotional Garcia's ballad. Again the instrumental part drives me to the obsession.**** / After a typical Garcia´s song... a typical Lebon´s song. A nice ballad which pass through many modes (scales).*** / Cara de velocidad: a piano... and then an instrumental Rock'n'roll. I never understood very well this composition.*** / Esperando Nacer is a beautiful blues (not a tradicional blues); one of the best songs in this album. I can´t describe anymore. Just listen to it and pay attention to the instrumental part.****' / 20 trajes verdes: a classical composition for piano. Nice, but no more.*** / Cinema Verite is a strong ballad. In the lyrics, the singer watches the real life like a movie. Interesting story and nice music.**** / En la vereda del sol is a latin song with a nice arrangement, modulations and instrumentation.*** / José Mercado is a reference to José Alfredo Martinez de Hoz, an argentinian economist who was a really bad minister. The music is quite strange. A pattern on a semitones scale and the voices. It's not complex but strange.***' / Salir de la melancolía: a jazzy-influenced song. Great Harmony with an awesome arrangement. Short song but very nice.**** / Lo que dice la lluvia is a great composition. First, the piano plays a very emotional music. When the voices appear, the composition achieves the climax. After that, there are a synth solo and a bass solo. Great piece.****'

This is not a masterpiece, but Serú Girán shows its talent again. Peperina is the last album before the dissolution.

Average rating: 3.45 stars.
