AllMusic Review by

This live album was recorded during May of 2004 at shows held in Tijuana and Phoenix. It's like a live greatest-hits album with a well-selected repertoire. The early material from the band's '80s output is covered in songs "Por el Resto," "La Muralla Verde," and "Guitarras Blancas." A bunch of songs from later albums can also be heard, like "Francés Limón," "Amores Lejanos," and "Luz de Día." Although the group is Argentinean, the bandmembers have settled in Mexico since the mid-'90s, and they pay tribute to this kind of fragmented nationality when choosing songs to cover. Mexico is represented with Los Bukis' classic "Tu Piel" and Argentina with Los Abuelos de la Nada's "Mil Horas." Guitarist Felipe Staiti handles lead vocals in "Ay Dolores," a song that reveals not only his own limitations as a singer but the group's as well, when Los Enanitos Verdes try to move beyond their Wings-infused pop/rock formula. This album is specially interesting for fans, and works well as a document of the popularity achieved by Los Enanitos Verdes in their two-decade career.
