 "Globetrotter" is an excellent album of jazz-rock period of GURU GURU, and it is almost without flaw. Music and arrangements are similar to that of "Tango Fango", minus unnecessary experimentation and tango/bossa nova silliness. The whole album is much more developed and consistent. It is very song- oriented and sometimes even radio-friendly but that only means it is more accessible than some earlier "experimental" nonsense. The title track with crazy instrumental announcements and "Moroso" are highlights, but the album can be seriously taken as a whole and heard several times in a row. Provided you are into this type of fusion music with some typical Krautrock weirdness.

    Experimentación innecesaria y tonterías de tango/bossa nova.

I also find it silly that I cant even address you by a
