4 stars Charly calls this band the "Yes of the third World" ... I think it is an exaggeration. Nevertheless, This album (the stronger of the two) is excellent symphonic prog from Argentina with some of the best musicians from the country. This album does not sound like Yes at all. It is closer in sound to Spinetta, Seru Giran, and Genesis.

"Bubulina" is an eerie track that starts the album well enough with a melodic mellow tune with a brilliant instrumental section full of guitar and organ showmanship. "Como Mata el Viento Norte" is a simple pop-folk tune in the vein of Sui Generis. "Boletos, Pases y Abonos" is a bombastic and virtuosic tune with a large instrumental section full of solos and amazing musicianship (these guys really know how to play their instruments). "No Puedo Verme" was the first song I liked from this band. It has an excellent guitar riff alternating with good melodies. It also has a good instrumental section like always. "Rock" is another virtuosic track full of instrumental brilliance. "Por Probar el Vino y el Agua Salada" is a beautiful folk song which gets energetic in its last minute and features great synthesizer playing. "Ah The Vi Entre Las Luces" is easily the highlight of the album. For non-spanish speakers ... this song is almost all instrumental. It rises to a musicianship of masterful playing like Crucis, Genesis, and Yes. Afte a highly melodic singing section, an energetic instrumental section begins. The two keyboardist create a wall of sound, while the drumming and bass guitar lead the rhythm section, and the gutar leads the bombastic section. In The last minutes of the song, the repetitive 'ah, te vi entre las luces' vocal line is backed by excellent musicianship. The finale is highly melodic and mellow. An Argentinian masterpiece of music!

Beware, this is not an easy album. I had to listen to it over 5 times in order to love it.
