5 stars An excellent work, En El Bunker has many elements of Jazz, and experimental music. Bagins with something like Indean music, I belive, made with sintethizer efects. The contrast between this music and the jazzy music that comes after is excellent, a masterpice of the eclectisism. The album is characterized for the fretless bass solos of Jorge Campos (the best bass player in Chile) with his constants demostrations of his virtuosism and expresion capacity. The screams of Arlette Jequier, something like she have a sobrenatural experience when she is singing, is one of the axis of this work, and all FULANO's works. The contrast is awesome, in some parts is something like jazz, with the sax solos of Cristian Crisosto, or free jazz like in En Este Momento Ud. Se Encuentra En el Medio Del Disco, a free jam of only 9 seconds. And other pices of Jazz in rithm of sincopated pandemonium like Nena no te Vayas a Chimbarongo.... You can discover here pieces like Honor, Decencia, Dignidad, Moral y Patria the title shows you of the ironic spirit of FULANO. But it has pieces of blues (Sentimental Blues), and Sinphonic Music (Gran Restrictor Ten Piedad De Nosotros), and Chopinean Waltz (Buhardillas), but the most rare and experimental piece, I think, is the homonimus theme of the album En el Bunker somethink like the postwar music, I mean, Luciano Berio, that is, the use of tape effects in the music, to make sounds monotones and repetitives, all contrasted by discordinates sounds of sax without structure predefined, that makes an antiesthetic music, that is so experimental to be understood. To finish my comment I have to said that album have the only hit of FULANO Adolfo Y Benito, Agusto Y Toribio the most ironic piece, something to considerate, this piece has a special strength, and political content. An ironic comparasion winth Pinochet and other dictators.
