4 stars 3.75: band formed by Carlos Alvarado and Jorge Reyes, among other members, two persons important for the development in Mexico of the prog movement, they met first in Nuevo Mexico at 1971, a most folk, hard rock oriented band with the same prehispanic elements that they would use in this band too. Lyrically, it is not as good as the music, I mean, not in the meaning or the purpose of them, but by the way they were written, I think they could be better. It talks about several topics, mainly a critic to the society and most of their activities, but also imaging a "better" society without feelings, for example in un Mundo Feliz. Musically, it has really good moments, showing element of prehispanic music combined with folk passages and synths. there are also some space rock passages. The song that I liked most was mundo feliz, aymara (mainly is introduction part), Nadie en especial, El dia que murio el Rey Camaleon. Finally, a very good record including a mix of prehispanic music, combined with folk, symphonic and space rock that delivers a a very good progresive record. Excellent addition to any prog collection and a important piece of history for the Mexican prog.
