AllMusic Review by

Ignacio Peña's debut album has 11 songs with lyrics based on personal experiences and reflections. The songs are mostly related to common people getting into different habits, starting with "En Español," a funny story about the use of that reference to promote products oriented to the Latin market in the U.S. A romantic "75% de Agua," is followed by 1960s-style ballad, "Un Retrato de la Agua," and "Puertos," written by Peña while waiting for a departure flight from the Miami International Airport. Inspired by fortune tellers promoting their "gift" on TV, "El Fongo Estelar" anticipates El Mundo Al Revés main title. After love related "Melissa" and "Por Si Acaso," the album comes to an end with the intimate and relaxed "Duérmete."
