Musicos Poetas y Locos compiles 20 songs that span almost 15 years of Los Pericos' career. The material is chronologically ordered, so it's a good way to see the band's growth from its naïve but fresh debut up to the more mature Mystic Love. Almost all of the big hits that helped build the band's international success are included here, like "Párate y Mira," "Me Late," "Eu Vi Chegar," "Runaway," and "Caliente." Unfortunately, there are also some misses, like "Home Sweet Home," "Torito," and "Fronteras en América." At any rate, this album serves as a good introduction for newcomers.
