4 stars This record is quite different from the other items of BE because all the compositions are written specially for the band by... different mexican modern contemporary music composers - there is not any music written by band members! I have listened altogether four albums from six of BE and this one may be IMO the most interesting among them. When the other records of BE have bit questionable moments in some themes, this one seems almost perfect. Compositions are quite longish (with hints to pre-columbian music sometimes) to go along with and the spectrum of sounds is awesome - marimbas, percussions, saxes, flutes in addition to rhythm section. Almost masterpiece - 4,5 stars really!!!

4 stars This is the last album from this excellent mexican band, as the same style of their other albums, this is a very RIO influenced album, here we can find anything from Henry Cow to Gong, well obviously i try to say that is on the same way, but not the same sound, Banda Elastica is one of the best mexican bands ive ever heard, this album is full of complexity and great musical arrangements, their rythm section is beautiful too, i think they put a lot of effort to this album, i dont know if this is the last, i hope dont, because i believe that this kind of bands here in Mexico are great to the progressive movement in my country, well, talking about the album, pay attention to songs like "Modelo a Seguir", in english A Model to Build, is aan excellent open song, and another excellent song in my opinion is Balada One, we can find in this album also instruments like Tabla or beautiful Sax, a really great suggestion!
