3 stars The second La Desooorden effort was enough to lead the band to concerts in various cities around the country, supporting monster names like Los Jaivas and Congreso.In 2004 it was time for the band's third effort: An indepedent release under the title ''La Isla De Los Muertos'', featuring among the known crew also Benjamin Ruz on violins.

To my ears La Desooorden sound much like a modern and Latin version of KING CRIMSON, where complex Rock meets the sensibilities of Spanish language and Latin tunes, with a touch of Post-Rock, RIO and Jazz throughout.The sound is heavily driven by the guitar work of Banda and his ROBERT FRIPP-styled playing with plenty of complex ideas, nervous breaks and evident dissonances.He is strongly supported by the duo of Ruz and mainly Pfeifer, some nice ethereal violins in the start of the album will leave their place to the dominant presence of Pfeifer's sax, which is the reason (along with the drumming of Gonzalez) why the album sounds very jazzy at moments.There are also some instrumental passages with a strong and very somber Ethnic feeling.Another aspect of La Desooorden's sound is the constant use of vocal lines by Fernando Tagore and Karsten Contreras.This is mostly a theatrical performance in singing, with both vocalists alternating between different emotions and lyrical styles, not always on par with the music, still enjoyable and close to the style of FULANO.

This is a good Heavy/Jazz/Prog album, where sometimes music is sacrified in the name of rather excessive vocal moments, but the pleasant moments are more than the mediocre ones.Another recommended album from the ever-growing Chilean modern Progressive Rock scene.
