AllMusic Review by

This album was conceived as a soundtrack to Eduardo Capilla's experimental film + Bien, but it really stands well by itself. You won't find what made Cerati famous here (his songs). Most of the 12 tracks are instrumental mid-tempo soundscapes that mix electronica and acoustic guitars equally. Somehow it works as an instrumental follow-up to his previous pop album, Bocanada. And it does a good job, especially with pieces like "Kuro," "Es Sólo una Ilusión," and "Llegaste." The film represented Cerati's debut as an actor; he co-starred the film with Latin MTV VJ Ruth Infarinato. Argentinean electronic artists like Leo García, Flavius, and Leandro Fresco are among the collaborators. Like many of his '90s works, this album lacks the emotion and dramatic tension of his best records with Soda Stereo, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Essentially, this album is mood music, and it works properly on that level.
