4 stars After quitting La Maquina de Hacer Pajaros, Charly Garcia decided to form a new band called Seru Giran, this debut album IMHO stands confidently along other latin prog gems, this one has the same escence of previous Maquina works, but in some ways this record reminds me of Fragile from Yes...long tracks combined with short tracks...and the sound reminds me of PFM early recordings. Seru Giran and Eiti-Leda are very symphonic tracks, the last one considered a classic to this very day and Charly as a solo artist has perfomed this track circa 1997. Lyrics of Seru Giran are quite a jigsaw puzzle really don't know what they mean, but it's a very well performed track...

Separata and Cosmigonon are the short ones, the one a very melancholic piece sung by Charly and probably a track I wish it was a little bit longer...and Cosmigonon with its killer guitar performance of David Lebon along with Charly's synths creates a fantastic spacey ambience...(The guitar riff has some similarities with the guitar solo in Feels Like the First Time/Foreigner).

The Other tracks are good fillers and Autos, Jets, Aviones, Barcos has the same feeling of Hipercandombe (La Maquina de Hacer Pajaros/Peliculas) very funky and joyful.

It's not their best album for me, but I really respect this work and because of that I rate it with 4 stars...

Carlos | 4/5 |
