Congreso - Ha Llegado Carta (1983)

The sixth album from this band from Chile.

The band was an eight piece big band with a lineup of drums, marimba, percussion, bass, charango, guitars, flute, piano, recorder and vocals.

The band had help from an orchestra and some xtra vocalists.

The band had so far released five good folk rock albums. The band perhaps felt they needed to stretch their legs, flap around with their wings and challenge themselves more than they had done on the first five albums.

The result is this forty-three minutes long album.

The album is all over the place. Take pop, add in folk rock, classical music and jazz. 

There is too much variations on this album and it feels like an experiment with both the patience of the listener and the music itself.

Yes, they stretched their legs and their legs became pretty sore and too many imperfections was revealed to the listener.

This is still a decent album but nothing more than that.
