4 stars This is a great album. It shows quite well the origins of this emblematic band. Is heavly oriented to the symphonic elements, with a lot of violin solos and usuall unisons between guitars, bass and cello. It's a very interesting album for people who likes to dive into a fresh atmosphere, music with sense and soul without a doubt. The first track, "Cola de Golondrina" is one great effort, mixing folk-fussion elements with symphonic and regular rock phrases. Great instrumental song. Other two standout tracks are "Un minuto de Ilusión" and "Posada". Both, nearly instrumental, 'cause the lyrics are quite short and give just what the song requieres to have an idea of the subject. Posada, speccially brings some interesting concept 'cause is based on a traditional phrase played in the Christmas hollidays with turtle percussion. The songs follows with guitar and violin solos. Maybe the best song of the album is the last one, "Hombres de Maíz", a seven minute song with a lot of symphonic parts. A very thoughtfull song that talks about the social life in Latin America. Great album, way above the average of the most latin rock, well written and with a lot of soul a meaning trhough the whole piece...
