"Palomita Blanca" was originally the soundtrack of a movie directed by Raoul Ruiz. The Andean's traditional influences which deeply animate "Todos Juntos" let the place to something closer to psychedelic rock experiences but always putting to the fore acoustic elements. Today it sounds a bit dated and largely impregnated by "hippie" naiveties. The musical selection offers a lot of soft, detached piano sequences, dialoguing with mini moog vibrations and acoustic / electric guitars alternating passages. This isn't really progressive but it contains its amazing moments as in the epic tune "Piedra Hora". Otherwise, nothing special. I presume that it just remains an interesting discover for true fans.
