4 stars 01. Centrales De Poder Heavy riffs and keyboards, the vocals enter and we realised which has the style, a lot of Rush influence but with heavier guitars (Alex Lifeson is more melodic). The voice of Lucho probably will be criticized by many, as is well 'shrill', but you know what? I love those vocals! It has a very catchy chorus, and sing in Spanish a lot of attention. The solo enter into a more 'up beat' and before the chorus again and we have a broken part. The final part is cadence, and ends in fade (common practice).

02. Souvenir Sensational start with the Juan Tambussi's guitar he's a great guitar player, the bass of Lucho is also great, great lines, this song is more quiet and contemplative well. A strong party of the band are the chorus, no doubt well written. After a short solo keyboard based on the sound of 70's, the band returns to verse, the guitars in MUTING and full of harmonics. Beautiful passages and... Rush (laughs). When the chorus comes back a keyboard makes a hilarious appearance. And the band ends with the church organ.

03. 451 Intrumental This is totally based on the themes of the Rush instrumental (like YYZ for example), guitar and bass riff, the drums of Sergio Moscatelli emulates Neal Peart with talent, and bass Lucho also does a great job. At the end of the song? Susprise! Strangely instrumental with a bagpipe (I think this is simulated keyboard), it was very good.

04. Desde El Trapecio I think it's the best of the disc, Desde Trapecio has a apured instrumental work in his introduction full of breaks, some keyboards of 'cabarett' (laughter), and a hilarious dog in the middle of the track! Sensational! When the voice enters, he is singing on top of an instrumental all broken and full of stops, here is Lucho in high pitch, some may find annoying, I find amazing. A very well developed and complex part after the chorus. Then again a melodic verse, to the tune then broken again so superb. The voice simulating a 'fall' of the trapezoid is also great. Solo flute imitating by the keyboard. And of course the guitars are highlighted by the disc, the band is really good. The solo was excellent, double guitars in the last part, the melody chosen one by one. Lucho and his high vocal, guitar, bass marked with drums, riff and end. Very good.

05. Dalo Vuelta It's kind like 'The Big Money' from Rush, you know that song with striking melody, but with instrumental break! Some keyboards and guitars in 'Baićo' style. And the more sensational chorus I ever heard. It is pop, but it is not! You know me? This sensational blend. After the repeat 'Baićo' stuff the chorus back to the bass only with drums, which adds value even more, and a riff that I LEMR the Red Baraćo the good times. What we have then? A beautiful instrumental solo and chorus of Tambussi again, a song almost perfect.

06. Analogķas Almost a ballad, with the background percussion and the vocal in front. I think it's like a 80's ballad including the keyboard sound, but without any points against. The solo is not to be more melodic, very beautiful, while the band plays the back track very well. Then it comes back only with percussion and keyboard to the bass and more vocal. Amid surprise! A very prog keyboard, which takes little pity, because it gives a very special touch, but for a good cause, so the guitars strongly influenced by Brian May (Queen), one of the few with such influence, the song ends beautifully.

07. Payasos Asesinos Del Espacio Exterior Begins with a synthesizer programming, and foul us (laughs), really is pure Heavy Metal, passing like progressive rock and heavy but full of melody. Verses full of power and melodic voice more 'serious'. After a series of angry guitars heard the sound of rain and time, the guitar back to a more quiet, fingering, to give body to the ground, full of percussions of all kinds in the background.

08. Libre Del Bien Y El Mal A whole angelic start with the keyboard, some strong passages, those famous stops, the drums full of those tiny tones. After a series of voice, the phone rings! A heavy part and enter into action, full of riffs. Then the synth come loose, which is great! I love instrumental such shares. Although I find that the bass was a bit mixed so bass, he always has excellent passages. The end zone is an instrumental without the least artistic care (laughs), everybody solando own account without any concern, which I found very interesting, very few people do that. Give until you hear some talking in the background.
