3 stars 3.5 really

La Desooorden from Chile was a very nice surprise for me, knowing this band only quite recently, I was realy impressed by this album, their forth from 2007 named Ciudad de papel or City of paper translated. A combination of jazz fusion with folk elements and heavier parts, make from this album a realy solid affair. Lots of untraditional and unknown to me instruments involved here like trutruca, tablas,darbouka and other strange ones, makes a very intristing atmosphere combined with guitar, bass, drums, keyboards. In this album is treated subject like pollution of the enviroment as the cover arts shows aswell, a realy actual and evocative problem for today in any country. Is a quirky album, with complex arrangements, sometimes they remind me of Van Der Graaf Generator but maybe more heavier in parts, with sax playing odd chops but very original I might say in the end. Very good the vocal parts , fits perfectly here. It was a realy nice ride for me this relase, it took more then usual to fully appreciate this at max, it is not an every day album to listen, has some very strange parts to me, but in same time very intristing, is sophisticated and damn progressive. Every piece is a winner here from the start Fumarolas del alma, seconded by Ciudad de papel and then El Gran Acuerdo who is more towards jazz rock side but excellent and goes on on every piece, far from being something usual here. A very solid album and very original. An intriguing band that needs for sure a wider recognition.3.5 stars for this one.
