1 stars This it is without doubt the worst album of Chac Mool, they did it too much pop and commercial, maybe they needed to be acquaintances in mexico, but therefore was not this the form, by the way after this album they decided to be separated, is an absurd material too much of the years 80įs with letters ridiculas and with musica without ningun sense and without progressive atmospheres, in few words is an album too sad and bad, is good that listen it to know them but, but I do not believe that you like.

2 stars I really liked Chac Mool in the 80's for what they were, but this release should be seen in a different angle, the band was already gathering widespread recognition in Mexico, and they issued this comercially tinted LP, no prog in it, in addition Jorge Reyes sang on it (heck they even shaved their beards so they could look cool) but nonetheless a very satisfiying album (after all, didn't ELP (love beach), Genesis (Mama), Tull (??), FM (tonight) released very commercial music during the '80's)

1 stars No wonder that the band will call it quit after this very poor release (even if they will do a come back in 2000, some sixteen years after this "work").

The band released some good stuff in their early works. Floyd, Tull and even Crimson at times were their influences.

With this album (which is very short, fortunately), the band sounds as the poor "Ange" from the eighties. Flat rock music. Nothing interesting at all. Synth pop as well, but not only.

This album is very bad. From the opening "Vestir De Rojo" and its "Genesis" while they were three influence to "Piel De Hielo" which almost sounds as a "Police" song. In between, "Tamaņo Natural" is probably the weakest. If ever you would use a well known technique (the press next one), you wouldn't listen to a single track of this album entirely. Gosh! What a suffering I need to endure to write objectively about this crappy release.

Because the worst sits along with the poorest. But to mention awful moments woiuld really mean to mention each track of this album. If you feel like listening to some disgusting AOR, feel free to endure "Solo Tienes 16".

This album is one of the best ones for the press next game, that's for sure. Avoid this album by all means. This has nothing to do with folk prog (nor prog actually). If you would like to have a good idea of the music played by this band, just stick to their first two albums.

This one deserves only one star (and it is on the higher end, really). Dreadful vocals all the way through to add to the quality.

Que nos hicieron ???
