When Soda Stereo released this album they were the most important pop/rock Latin American band. The album confirmed it. Recorded and mixed in New York, the album was produced by David Bowie's guitarist Carlos Alomar. He gave them a sound that brought the album near but timidly to soul music. Alomar even rapped in "En el Borde." A horn section was included in many songs and that gave a flavor that the band never had before and would not in the future, except in the forthcoming EP Languis. Although the album contains some of the most beautiful songs from the band, such as "En la Ciudad de la Furia" and "Corazón Delator," the album lacks the consistency of the previous studio album Signos.
