Prog Reviewer
1 stars As far as I'm concerned, this is a very painful record. I was charmed with (only) of few of their prior albums or at least with some great songs from these.

This record really doesn't hold any of the good old music that the band was able to release in the seventies. This is nothing than just poor synth music with no feeling. The sense of humour of the early days has been forgotten and it is really a challenge to go through all these tunes.

The only good point is the shortness of such an album. At least we aren't confronted with a seventy minutes long album. Of course, at the time of release, such length were not available, unless you would release a double album. This was of course not an option for the band when we listen to the poor level of music recorded here.

It might have got to appeal those who could stand the club floor music of these days, but such hasn't been my taste. I can't find any one track of interest here. Just skip this album. This is my only advice.

Hay que olvidar esta pendejada lo más pronto possible. As the band was willing to use some Spanish ''lyrics'' in this "musical" experience?

One star: this is the max I can get here?De veras, lo máximo para esta ''obra''.
