Second work of this band from Valencia region (Spain), which show us how to do simple rock´n´roll with a very intelligent lyrics. The band deal a lot of subjects such as: feminism, pacifism, anarchism, etc.  Some tracks are more ska oriented, even with sax and keyborads. If you like their first debut ("Vitaminas A"), this is almost exactly, we mean, an excellent disc.
