With a Pedro Gene increasingly influenced by the vocal forms of Bload, Sweat and Tears or Chicago, the band faces this studio LP in which they alternate, as was usual in them, English and Spanish. For some purist in love with the group, this is the best Lone Star feature . This may be debatable and surely this discussion will be sterile; but, at least, we must accept that it has two absolutely great subjects. 

“If at night I call your name” is a rock of blunt start, excellent bill in bass and bacteria and melodic line that sticks to your ear. “Hallelujah” with a section of winds well nourished by trumpets, tenor saxophone and baritone is a pleasant subject, but in which the voice of Pedro presents a diction somewhat redicha. “Maybe tomorrow” is a very good ballad well performed by the singer and that joins the strings, brilliant passages of key in charge of the piano and the key. The “infernal machine"It begins with the voice of Pedro shelling industrial onomatopoeias on a percussion background. It is not the most brilliant album, but the vibraphone solo that Joan marks is masterful and breaks the melody in an unexpected way. 

The almost nine minutes of "I got nobody” is an authentic sound beating for the listener. One of those rock downloads that leaves little room for respite or pause. Rhythm machacón and solos for everyone, including bass. Some minute less would have been appreciated. 

I leave for the end the two themes to which I alluded at the beginning of this comment. “Nathalie” is a beautiful little gem full of sensitivity from beginning to end, one of those topics to discover and a demonstration of what these hardened and hard musicians were able to do when they undertook a tender ballad . The string and keyboard arrangements are of honor registration. 

Separate paragraph deserves “Pájaro de fuego” spectacular theme of trepidante rhythm and percussion of jungle aftertaste loaded with abrupt and well measured changes of rhythm driven by the guitar. The voice wastes faculties and goes through all that can be grasped and can not be bounced away, sometimes dragging the syllables, shouting them, sometimes. Mention aside two details: the intervention of the flute and the part in which this bird leaves his tropic and delves into the most exquisite New York jazz with the piano directing operations. 

The album was praised by critics and it is worth being heard and valued as a whole as a complete work and not as a sum of different pieces. From different areas, the official title of the best Spanish group was claimed for Lone Star. I will not be the one to oppose this honorific award…..by Julián Molero ..LaFonoteca…~
