3 stars The farewell live album from Serú Girán. Pedro Aznar was ready to leave so that he can play with Jazz musicians Pat Metheny. This live album is solid, but not spectacular by any means and should only be for people who collected the first four albums. One problem is that it has several songs from their unimpressive "Peperina" without having its highlights: "Peperina" and "Lo Que Dice La Lluvia". The songs are played fine, but the keyboard choices are less "prog" and the performances are again 'safe'. the new song "Popotito" is a square rock&roll track with funny lyrics and David Lebón screaming sexual innuendo "Agarrame la vena, nena".

There is a new studio track: the title track. It's a popular rocker with plenty of energy. Do not underestimate it, it is a very good song.

3 stars Don't cry for me, Argentina...

No llores por mi Argentina is the classic live album by SG. They recorded it when the band was in its best age and It was the unique live album until 1993. However, songs sound better than the original versions. Just pay attention to Eiti Leda, Salir de la melancolía, Canción de Alicia en el país... Awesome live versions.

Also, there are a new song called No llores por mi Argentina (studio) and another song called Popotitos which is a version of a song by another artist.

Highlights: the bass solo in Eiti Leda, the strongest part in Cuanto más llevará, the vocal arrangement in Cancion de Alicia en el país... One of the best bands in the early 80's. For me, this album could be a masterpiece of Prog- Related. Here, in the Archives, 3.5 stars.
